Benefits of a Pergola
First, before we dig into the many benefits of a pergola, let’s discuss the structure and purpose of this architectural feature. A pergola is an archway commonly found in gardens, parks, and yards. It consists of a framework of vertical posts or pillars that typically support crossbeams and an open lattice ceiling. Oftentimes, the posts and lattice of the pergola support climbing plants.
Sometimes pergolas are confused with arbors. Though similar to pergolas, arbors are typically smaller and simpler in structure, and they may contain a bench seat. They frequently bear curved arches at the top, and they are often freestanding or attached to a fence. Pergolas, on the other hand, are larger, open in structure, typically flat, and often attached to homes or buildings. Since some people use the terms arbor and pergola interchangeably, it is important that you carefully review these types of products before purchasing.
If you select a product that combines beauty and durability with function and affordability, you’re sure to enjoy the many benefits of a pergola, including all of the following:
- Pergolas are beautiful.
