Few garden structures can match a pergola in utility and beauty.
Their implied ceilings and walls create a sheltered space that feels cosy and comfortable, yet the openness ensures that the space remains intimately connected to nature and the garden.
They also make for great transition spaces from indoors to outdoors.
Whether directly attached to the house or free-standing, a well-designed pergola creates a strong sense of connection between the house and the garden as it constitutes elements from both.
A pergola should match the house and garden in scale and character. Blend in the pergola by using materials used on the façade of the house and the garden.
