Your new deck should be a place where you and your friends and family can relax and enjoy the great outdoors. But, as anyone in Maryland knows, the great outdoors can sometimes be a little too hot and humid, especially when directly in the sun. If you truly want to enjoy your new deck, you will need a little shade. The solution: add a Pergola.

Pergolas are built using four support posts with cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice, often adorned with woody vines. The vines form a canopy over the pergola, adding to the pergola’s natural shade.

Benefits of a Pergola

  1. Shade: First and foremost, a pergola helps shield you and your guests from the sun, allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors.
  2. Aesthetics: A pergola is an aesthetically appealing way to provide shade. While you could easily add an awning, nothing will give your deck the same visual appeal as a pergola.
  3. Options: A pergola can be designed as a freestanding architectural element or as part of your deck. The choice is yours.
  4. Define Spaces: In an open yard filled with little to no hardscape, a pergola helps to define an outdoor living area.
  5. Plant Life: A pergola is often used as a structure to support vines, ivy, wisteria, or other climbing plants. This simple addition adds greatly to the already tremendous visual appeal of your pergola.
  6. Home Value: Attractive landscaping can add as much as 20% to your home value, according to home improvement expert Bob Vila. And a pergola is an excellent addition to any landscape.
  7. And More!
