What Types of Pergolas Are There?

I’d wager that for many of us, visualizing the “it factor” is key to unlocking what’s possible for yourself. 

Today, the “it factor” is PERGOLAS!

(As a reminder, Pergolas are outdoor structures without walls, and have a grid-like roof supported by columns or posts. Pergolas are made up of beams, bracing, rafters, and columns, and may also include louvers or batten strips. The roof and walls can be open or covered.)

If you’ve been outside this summer, you know that shade in your landscape is critical for finding some respite and relaxation. While pergolas don’t work in every scenario, they are an option that can (and should!) be considered.

The great news is that our team at Topiarius can design, engineer, and install pergolas that come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors for in-ground AND rooftop applications. Better yet, all of these options can be customized for your preferences and the goals you have for your outdoor space. Without further ado, take a look at these beauties:
