Your outdoor living area provides plenty of enjoyment, but you may be wondering how to make it even more inviting. A garden arbor or a cedar pergola provides an extra element of beauty that can make a welcome addition to your outdoor living area. Rick’s Custom Fencing and Decking offers the following suggestions to help narrow down your garden arbor or pergola ideas:
Garden arbor – simple and stunning
If you’re looking to add a delicate touch to your outdoor living area, consider installing a garden arbor. A garden arbor is a small structure that can stand alone or be installed over a fence, and can add to the tranquil mood of your outdoor living area. A garden arbor with vines or flowers crawling up the sides may be just what you need to accent your garden with a simple elegance.
Cedar pergola – providing shade and comfort
A cedar pergola lets your outdoor living area breathe, allowing for free flow of air and plenty of shade during the warmer months. When placed over walkways or entertainment areas, a cedar pergola makes a dramatic, stately presence in your yard.
If you’re still stumped by your pergola ideas, here are some things to consider:
- Your pergola ideas should plan to cover a wider space than a garden arbor.
- Cedar is a good material choice for all your pergola ideas – it looks great, and will provide years of enjoyment.
Additionally, you can top your cedar pergola with a UV-protected acrylic roof to create a waterproof living space to further protect you from the elements.
