What Is A Pergola And What Are The Benefits?

A recent report from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) titled “What Homeowners Really Want” found that the percentage of homeowners rating a patio as essential increased from 73 percent to 87 percent over the past 15 years.

If you don’t know what a pergola is, then our objective is to change that.  A pergola is an efficient way to make the most of your outdoor space. Whether for barbeques or spending time alone, a pergola is more than just a structure, it’s a destination.


What Is A Pergola?

According to Merriam-Webster, a pergola is “a structure usually consisting of parallel colonnades supporting an open roof of girders and cross rafters.”

Pergola covers offer shade, with slats covered with a canvas or climbing vines. A covered pergola canvas can be pulled back for more sunlight or moonlight.

What Are The Benefits Of A Pergola?

An outdoor pergola is made for exterior spaces. The structure provides shade without blocking sunlight.



Pergolas are ideal outdoor places where friends and family can meet and gather. The structures are good for pool parties as they provide a space away from the action for those who want something different.  

The outdoor structures come in different sizes. You can have more than one pergola if necessary. Designate one for personal use, another for grilling, and one for a picnic table.

Sun Or Shade

Pergolas offer the best of both worlds. You can choose between full shade or complete sunshine. Other outdoor structures, like arbors or gazebos, do not offer the same.

There are so many options to choose from, so keep an open mind. A pergola is like a convertible car, but much easier to use the top.


You can use a pergola as a carport for multiple cars. There are even pergolas tall enough for pickup trucks to derive under. Then you can choose to keep the shade up or leave it down to show off your truck.


Pergola designs are available in a wide variety of options. They offer a summertime aesthetic that fits with any outdoor environment. A backyard pergola is wide, open, and can have plants growing around them.
