When most homeowners think of a pergola, a standard, slatted backyard shade structure with open sides comes to mind.  Pergolas, however, are an extremely versatile outdoor addition and can be planned, built or altered to suit any home or garden.

Pergolas can be constructed from natural wood or man-made synthetic materials and designed as an attachment to your home or as an entirely separate, free-standing unit.

A pergola might be a small and unobtrusive addition to a secluded garden getaway or a welcoming, grand and impressive gateway to your home’s front door entryway.

And combined with a deck, patio or other outdoor space, pergolas make an aesthetic impact while providing shade, shelter and a sense of privacy too. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

The images of relaxing at home, on your deck, inside a screened porch or gazebo or under a pergola is… well, relaxing and peaceful.

Outdoor living spaces are often the best escapes for reading, napping, dining, or congregating with family and friends.  And pergolas, in particular, are an excellent way to economically turn an outdoor area into an outdoor room.

In St. Louis, pergolas have gained popularity for backyard building by adding shade, charm, design definition, and dollar value to your property.  New generation, low maintenance building products and design creativity have also added to the appeal of a pergola.

When it comes to our weather, St. Louis is often called ‘the land of the four seasons’.

And it’s not uncommon for St. Louisians to experience ‘all four seasons’ in the span of one week!

One day folks might be wearing snow boots and the next day, backyard BBQ’s are happening.

Really… it’s true.

Of course, we have some dreary and cold days; however, by and large, St. Louis is filled with sunshine during all four-seasons.

But by now you’re probably thinking, “What does all this weather-talk have to do with pergolas?”

Well, anyone who lives in our area can attest our weather can be downright crazy at times; subsequently, homeowners living ‘in this neck of the woods’ definitely take weather into account when considering outdoor home improvements including shade options. Read the rest of this entry »
