What is a pergola? Outdoor pergolas have long been a favorite garden or backyard feature in Europe. In Italy, Greece, and other Mediterranean regions, these structures have served as a rest area in vineyards, spas, and herb gardens. They were once very popular as a shady overhead for small open-air markets.
Despite their decline in popularity during the 19th century, in which naturalistic garden designs became the favored look, pergolas have once again become a popular garden and backyard accent, particularly in yards where recreational activities occur. Homeowners often add a gazebo to the backyard for picnicking or relaxation after swimming in the pool.
Pergolas are shaded structures consisting of posts or pillars supporting an open-latticed roof. They are often constructed over a walkway or sitting area, with vines or woody shrubbery offering shade. Pergolas are often built near a pool area because their open-air shadiness creates a comfortable, cool rest area.
