Webster defines the pergola as such:

noun per·go·la \ˈpər-gə-lə, pər-ˈgō-\

 1. a structure usually consisting of parallel colonnades supporting an open roof of girders and cross rafter

We here at Kloter Farms would expound on that definition as a beautiful structure that offers a way to define your outdoor space without closing it in.

Pergolas are classic, architectural features that often covered the walkways in Italian Renaissance gardens and classic Parisian terraces.

This type of structure makes a versatile addition to any outdoor living area because it can be customized to fit the size and style of your yard, whether it’s formal or casual.

Pergolas don’t provide full shelter, but their openness is what provides that look of simple elegance.

Pergolas traditionally are constructed of one two materials: wood or vinyl

Often a bit more rustic than their vinyl counterparts, wood pergolas generally speak to those who love to see a natural element incorporated into their outdoor space.

  1. I would absolutely love to have something like this in my back yard. It would be so nice to have some shade to always relax in. My favorite one is the one that has the canopy! That way, you would have total shade when you want it. And it still looks so nice!

  2. Great article about pergolas! I especially like the pictures you posted showing the wide range of pergola styles available! Pergolas are such a stylish and useful structure; I’m glad that you are taking the opportunity to showcase them!
