St. Louis Pergolas by Archadeck – Shade for Outdoor Cooking and Dining

Picture this… the end of a long work week and you’re ‘kicking back’ on your deck or patio under a pergola. Peaceful right?

Outdoor living spaces are often the absolute best escape for relaxing in solitude, hanging out with the kids, gathering with friends, cooking and dining.

And pergolas are an excellent way to turn an outdoor area into an ‘outdoor room’, economically.

In Greater St. Louis, custom designed pergolas are a trending backyard shade structure because of their unique qualities to promote comfort and style… providing that oh-so-perfect ‘finishing touch’ and focal point for your outdoor living space.

It’s nearing the end of a busy work week and the three-day holiday weekend is approaching… an ideal occasion to carve out some ‘outdoor living’ time on the patio or deck under a pergola.  Pergolas create an outdoor room, beautifully and economically.

And for this reason, custom-designed pergolas are a St. Louis favorite when it comes to backyard shade structures.  Shade pergolas provide a well-defined focal point for any outdoor space and a ‘finishing touch’ for stylish outdoor living in comfort.
