elegantly extend your outdoor living space
The origin of the word is the Late Latin ‘pergola’, referring to a projecting eave. As a type of gazebo, it may also be an extension of a building or serve as protection for an open terrace or a link between pavilions.”
According to Wikipedia: “A pergola is an outdoor garden feature forming a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area of vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice, often upon which woody vines are trained.
How far technology has advanced from the original concept! These days we have all sorts of variations available. Pergolas with retractable canvass roofs, glass roofs, Polycarb roofs, rotating-blade roofs with the added possibility of enclosing the sides with glass door systems, screens, shutters and windows. The possibilities are truly endless.
