Proper pronunciation aside, what exactly is a pergola?

According to Wikipedia (and slightly modified by yours truly): A pergola is a garden structure forming a shaded walk or passageway of pillars that support cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice, upon which vines can be trained.

What are pergolas used for? Here are a few ideas for you:

  • Protect an open terrace from full sun by providing shade
  • Create the “outdoor room” effect by providing a ceiling for your space
  • Link two areas within your landscape–picture a covered walkway between a formal terrace and cutting garden for example.
  • Create a covered play area for your kids
  • Make your neighbors jealous

The screenshot below is a collection of pergola images curated by landscape designer Susan Cohan using Pinterest.com. Click the image to view the entire collection of pergola photographs. The variety is truly inspiring.  Be prepared: You’ll waste at least 20 minutes browsing the beautiful images.

Testimonials

We would like to offer a BIG thank you to you for doing such a fantastic job with our holiday decorations! Not only was it customized perfectly to our liking, but you were a pleasure to work with. We love our tree, and if the response to pictures of it by friends & family on Facebook is any indication (which is where we find validation of our lives ;))…so does everyone else!
