A Short History

What is a pergola? 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 take place. Homeowners often add a gazebo to the backyard as a place for picnicking or for relaxation after swimming in the pool.

A pergola from Amish Country Gazebos adds a beautiful touch to any backyard because it can be constructed of kiln-dried softwoods and built in the popular Amish style. Have additional questions about what is a pergola? Contact us and we will help determine the perfect outdoor structure for you!

What Is A Pergola?

Creating an enjoyable backyard entertainment and relaxation area is an exciting challenge. A backyard pool surrounded by stunning landscape designs, a gazebo, and a pergola becomes the talk of the neighborhood. Pergolas are often overlooked by homeowners who desire a truly unique styling project for their backyard, but these simple structures are not only affordable, they also create a shady rest area that complements the sunlit portions of the yard.

What is a pergola canopy?

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 forming a green shade in the lattice. Pergolas are often built near a pool area because their open-air shadiness creates a comfortable, cool rest area.

Wood Pergolas

These structures can be purchased as a pre-fabricated kit. Because of their lightweight construction, they do not require a sunken concrete foundation. Sturdy support pillars are fastened to the overhead lattice, and the entire structure can be set directly on a concrete or tile floor. Walkways can be lined with stones upon which the pillars rest.

Wood pergolas have a top made from slats. These are shaped in cross-fashion and can support vines or other shrubberies. They are available in rectangular, square, or triangular shapes when ordered as a DIY kit.

Vinyl Pergolas

Vinyl pergolas are available in a wide variety of color shades. These structures require very little maintenance and will not discolor for many years. Vinyl pergola kits come with all hardware included, making for easy construction.
