Top 4 Reasons for Owning an Arbor or Pergola

Are you looking for a way to enhance the quality of your outdoor living experience? Do you want to make a change to your deck or patio to give it more visual appeal? Do you need a place where you can store those extra potted plants you have? Well, there is one easy solution to achieve all three – have Red Valley Landscape design and build you an arbor or pergola!

Arbors and pergolas are simple structures that can transform your backyard and turn it into an outdoor living space that you love. To some people, pergolas may look like incomplete structures. They are typically built with roof beams and vertical beams and lack a solid roof or walls, but they come with benefits that will change the way you enjoy your outdoor living space. Here are some of the reasons why you should consider adding an arbor or pergola to your outdoor living space.

If you have already installed a deck or patio, you likely added it to extend your living space beyond the walls of your home. You love your outdoor living area – but maybe you’ve found that it’s not quite so great on a hot summer afternoon when the sun is beating down. Perhaps you just wish you had some protection from inclement weather? Then an arbor may be perfect for you. An arbor extends your outdoor living area and increases the amount of time you can spend outside. Designed and oriented correctly on your lot, an arbor can cast just enough shade to make even a hot afternoon enjoyable.

Arbors and Pergolas Can Combine with Other Structures

One of the best things about arbors and pergolas is that they can be used as a lead-in to other structures like decks, patios, or trellises. You could also use your arbor or pergola as a lead to a solitary gazebo from your back door, creating an eye-catching outdoor living area. No matter what you choose, remember that these versatile structures do not have to be on their own. In fact, they often work best when combined with other backyard designs.

Create a Place to Entertain Outside

Everyone loves outdoor parties, and a pergola or arbor can give you an outdoor entertainment area that is attractive and versatile. Whether it is an outdoor kitchen area or a lounge, there are many superlative design ideas that you can use to create additional outdoor living space where loved ones can gather to sip coffee or share a bottle of wine!

Arbor and Pergolas Offer Many Different Decor Options

Arbors and pergolas provide support for everything from chandeliers and ceiling fans (check with your landscape designer first, please!) to small speakers, strings of lights, even fabric. You’re only limited by your imagination.

Pergolas can also add additional garden space in your outdoor living area. You can hang plants from the beams and create a gorgeous garden in the air. A pergola is also perfect for plants like clematis, honeysuckle, ivy, wisteria, and grape vines as they grow from the ground up and can create a beautiful natural ceiling as they intertwine themselves in the boards.
