Add Shade and Visual Interest With a Backyard Pergola

A pergola is a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area with vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice. Pergolas may extend from a building’s door to an open garden feature such as an isolated terrace or pool, or be freestanding, providing a sitting area that allows for breeze and light sun but offers protection from direct sunlight.

Pergola Structures for Gardens

Pergolas also give climbing plants or vines a structure on which to grow. Our clients have grown beautiful vines and flowering plants such as jasmine on our custom pergolas. It’s just one more way to tie together a backyard renovation with unique elements that make your backyard the envy of the neighborhood.

What is an ACP Pergola Made Of?

Pergola design materials that include wood, vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum and chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) are more affordable and are increasing in popularity. Wooden pergolas are either made from a weather-resistant wood, such as western red cedar or redwood — which are painted or stained. For a low maintenance alternative to wood, vinyl, fiberglass, aluminum and CPVC can be used. These materials do not require yearly paint or stain like a wooden pergola and can be even stronger and longer-lasting than a wooden pergola.
