The pergola is a very popular architectural element that is used in many different ways. It has been used for centuries as an open-air structure and has different names depending on the region. A pergola can be built in your backyard and will add beauty and value to your home.
There are two main types of pergolas: freestanding and attached ones. A freestanding one is not attached to any other part of the house while an attached one is built on top of another part of your home such as your porch or decking area.
