Often, we are asked, "What exactly is a pergola? Is it like a gazebo or something?"
A pergola combines the best of both worlds. Like a gazebo, pergolas provide a shaded canopy overhead to minimize the hot summer sun. Additionally, the pergola�s open air roof allows the perfect amount of sunlight to cascade through. Pergolas can have walls by request. Pergolas are generally detached but can be easily connected to your existing structure to give them that outdoor room appeal.
When planning a new design, a well-placed pergola will cast the perfect shadows at the perfect times. Adding an ergonomically designed cypress swing that will last a lifetime really adds a nice touch. Our swings come fully customizable to include cup holders, springs, names and quote engravings. We will do what it takes to make it truly special to you.
• Add climbing plants that wrap around the structure to add a brilliant aesthetic. Hops is a hardy perennial that spreads well, or consider hydrangea vines for some elegant flowering effects.
• Placing stone pillars at the base of each support beam can provide a strong and appealing design aesthetic to the structure.
• Additional lighting can be wired into the pergola to illuminate the interior at night or the exterior, surrounding yard area.
