Know more about a pergola, which can make a charming addition to your backyard. There are two types of pergolas, freestanding and attached. Freestanding allows you to build or put your pergola anywhere in the backyard, giving you a place to barbeque, socialize, picnic, or relax in the beauty of your backyard. An attached pergola is attached to the home. It gives you extra shade space for your deck or patio.
Pergolas come in many shapes and sizes. Some common types of pergolas include the garden pergola, which naturally features in the garden, is freestanding, and is generally built very simply, with a latticed roof and straight beams holding it up. The garden pergola offers room for ivy to grow on and a place for you to sit in the quiet of a summer morning or afternoon.
