Pergola Design Ideas

Standard Pergola

A standard pergola is an open-air structure consisting of columns supporting a lattice of beams and rafters that provides partial shade while allowing sun and breeze to pass through. 

Pergolas are popular in Texas for  numerous reasons. They provide a shaded area to relax or entertain, making it more comfortable to spend time outdoors during the hot summer months. A well-designed pergola can increase your home’s value by extending your living space and improving your property’s overall appearance.

Covered Pergola

A covered pergola is a variation of the standard pergola with a solid roof. The roof can be made from materials like metal, wood, or shingles, and provides protection from the sun and rain.

Covered pergolas offer a sheltered outdoor living space where you can relax, dine, or entertain guests while being protected from the harsh sun or sudden rain showers.

Pergola & Patio

Pergolas combine beautifully with patios to create an inviting outdoor living space. The patio provides a solid, level surface for furniture, while the pergola offers shade and structure overhead.

This combination can be customized to suit your style and needs, whether you prefer a classic wood pergola with a stone patio or a modern metal pergola with a concrete patio.

Freestanding Pergola

A freestanding pergola can be placed anywhere in your yard, creating a shaded relaxation space where there would otherwise just be the hot hot sun.

Freestanding pergolas are perfect for creating a focal point in your garden, adding a seating area, and providing shade over a pool or hot tub.
