The distinctive characteristics of a pergola is its beautiful lattice roof supported by supporting columns. But many variations of pergola styles are available to help you fulfill your desire in creating your dream backyard.
Below are some of the common pergola styles:
The freestanding pergolas can be easily mounted anywhere you desire in your garden setting without the need of any external walls or structures for securing. They are often built in a square design and with four, six or eight support columns. The freestanding pegolas make a perfect enclosure for patios, decks, hot tubs, or outdoor living furniture.
The attached pergolas are efficiently designed to secure to your existing house wall, eliminating the need for the second set of posts on the pergola. Because they require less materials they are cheaper than free standing pergolas and often are still easy to mount. What's more, they are an amazing transition as you walk out of your house into your outdoor garden setting.
The walkway pergola enhances your landscape by adding a beautifully decorated open-ended element. They are often used as an enchanting entrance into the garden setting or mounted along your pathway as a beautiful passage. The walkway pergolas can range from small arbors to long extended pathway structures.
Swing pergolas provide the weather protection and relaxing atmosphere of the normal pergola, but also comes with a swing that is easily installed to the pergola. They are perfect to relax to the gentle rhythm of the swing, while observing the wonderful beauty of your garden.
