A Pergola is an outdoor structure that creates a free standing room without walls. They can serve as creating that separate room feel, extending your living space or serve as a passage way and/or the perfect landscape element. They are excellent for supporting climbing plants and adding character to any existing space.They not only are a great investment but they generate a little shade while creating a relaxing environment. These structures also allow air to pass through the area often keeping the space cooler than if it was fully covered. While pergolas have many different options, one is to add cloth shades so you can control how much sun light you let in as well.
