If you’ve never experienced the luxury and bougieness of a pergola, you’re missing out! Pergolas are a beautiful way to increase your outdoor living space. In addition to beautiful design, they also provide a shady garden feature to walkways, decks, or outdoor sitting areas.

While we may highlight the practical uses, adding a pergola to your home will increase your home’s resale value in the long run. If you’re unsure of what a pergola is, let us explain them. Pergolas are known by their vertical pillars that support either cross beams or open lattice. The most common sight on a Pergola is climbing vines, hanging lights, or curtains, all of which make the pergola stand out and look beautiful. 

Why should I get a pergola?

Pergolas are wonderful because not only do they enhance your outdoor space, but they are also functional as well. They add an extra usable space on your deck or garden that can provide a layer of shade between you and the hot summer sun. If your Pergola is big enough, entertaining your guests in a cozy and warm environment will make your next dinner party feel fabulous. Being able to lounge under the shade on your porch or back deck is a wonderful feeling. In addition to letting you be outside longer and more comfortably, pergolas add more to your home’s value as well.

Pergola Vs.Gazebo Vs. Arbor vs. Trellis Vs. Lattice

Pergola Vs. Gazebo

The biggest difference between a gazebo and a pergola is that gazebos are almost always shaped like an octagon with a roof over top. Pergolas do not have covered roofs and are generally square with exposed beams.  

Pergola Vs. a Trellis

A Trellis is different from a pergola in that it consists of latticework that is attached to a structure for vines to climb on. Whereas a pergola has larger columns and (most popularly) have horizontal planks of wood on top.

Pergola Vs. Arbor

Arbors are small archways that can be used for climbing plants to use as lattice as they grow. While pergolas and arbors both have the same vine climbing feature, pergolas are much biggest and more structurally sound.
