Imagine sitting in your back yard and feeling both inside and outside at the same time. That’s the feeling a pergola brings as the focal point of your back yard. A vestige of the Italian Renaissance, your guests will love it!
A pergola is an overhead construction that consists of an arbor or passageway with a roof of latticework. A pergola usually covers a patio, a poolside walkway, a driveway, or even a picnic or dining area. The pergola does not completely shade the area it covers. Instead, it allows only a portion of the sunlight to enter through its latticework roof.
For an added touch of character and shade, allow decorative vines to grow up the columns and across the top. Hand out masks to your guests and have your own Italian masquerade party!
