Protecting against the Weather
When a pergola is designed to incorporate climbing plants, or heavy laced lattice, it can easily block out the intense sunshine to the area below. Pergolas can even be designed to protect against the rain without completely blocking off the lid like a traditional roof.
Pergolas are often blended into a landscaping design with other outdoor structures including verandas and gazebos. Sometimes, pergolas are designed as a “lead-in” to the backyard, pool deck, or other structures.
A well-built pergola will add significant value to every homeowner’s property. Additionally, it provides a focal point of interest that can quickly enhance even the most boring landscape. It can be built to provide shade, protection from the elements, or as a screen to block out even the most undesirable view.
