Incorporating Pergolas into Landscape Design

Pergolas are a permanent outdoor architectural feature for the garden that forms a walkway or sitting area that provides shade.

The structures will also serve as an accent or frame a focal point in the landscape design. Adding elegance and a splash of grace, as well as function to a garden design is easily accomplished with pergolas.
