Ideas For A Pergola


When it comes to your yard and landscaping, you are going to want your yard to stick out from all the rest. It is very common to see nice grass and even shrubs, flowers, and trees. However, there is something that is not as common as it should be, and that feature is a pergola. These features can be extremely elegant or very plain and basic, and no matter what style your home is, you will be able to find a decorative pergola that fits perfectly. Here are a few ideas as to how you can utilize a pergola in your landscaping. 

Path Cover

If you have put a lot of time in your yard, there is a good chance that you have a few walkways. The walkways can be built out of any type of material, but to make your landscape more elegant and give it more character, a pergola can be used as a walkway cover. This means that the pergola will be long and skinny, but you can make it look absolutely beautiful. One of the main reasons that the pergola can add so much to a pathway is that it can add a great deal of shade, but also break up the monotony of colors in most backyards.

Garden Cover

If you want to add a little bit of Spanish culture to your backyard, you can use a pergola as a garden cover. Your garden cover pergola does not have to have a solid top and can actually have open slots in the top for sunlight to go through. One of the main reasons that you may want to consider having a pergola cover your garden is that you can have grapes grow up your pergola, and you may just end up making your own wine-- or just enjoying the grapes themselves. 

Pool Side 

There is nothing better than being able to go out to the backyard and swim a little, get a little sun, and then get a little bit of fresh air in the shade. The shade can be provided by a pergola that has a closed roof. These types of pergola are nice to have because they give you a place to get some shade from the sun, but they also protect from the elements, such as rain and snow. It is under this type of pergola that you can place a cooking grill.
