Our Favorite Pergolas
A pergola, an outdoor structure that usually offers shade from the midday sun, can be as simple or ornate as the homeowners desire. Here are a few of the pergolas that we’ve admired for their ability to look attractive, provide shelter, and support vines or vertical gardens.
This pergola is attached to the house and provides a roof for an outside sitting room.

Pergolas can fit into any garden scheme, whether traditional or Tuscan or modern.
