Pergolas have come a long way in the past few years, from temporary obscurity to prominence. Pergolas are not new, but they’ve found new life recently – first as a trending item and now a must-have. Many homeowners feel an open-to-the-sky outdoor living project, such as a deck, would not be complete without a pergola.
Like us, you may recall the days when people couldn’t remember the name, pergola. They would say something like, You know, that tall thing on posts with slats across the top? Kind of like a trellis or an arbor, only bigger and more substantial? You know, one of those! As pergolas found their place in present-day outdoor living design, they moved from the garden to the deck, patio, and pool deck.
