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
