Pergolas and gazebos have been regular fixtures in backyards and outdoor landscapes for centuries. Their simple yet versatile designs, paired with the range of available building material, make them a staple in so many yards. Outdoor structures such as gazebos and pergolas provide a level of decorative and functional use that make them appealing for an assortment of locations, including parks and homes of all sizes.
While the two structures feature different designs and shapes, they’re both quite at home in the backyard. However, contemporary designers have expanded the use, location, and function of pergolas and gazebos to make them a welcome addition to other parts of a property.
