What is a pergola?
Originating in Egypt, circa 1600’s – A pergola is a type of gazebo or open structure that is perfect for lounging and/or dining under, and great for displaying vining/hanging plants. Pergolas have a sleek design style, making it look more like a garden feature, rather than a seating area, which in turn creates a beautiful focal point in your yard.
