The same qualities that make wood the ideal choice for decking are what make wood a great fit for a variety of outdoor structures of all sizes, including pergolas and gazebos.
Since the purpose of these structures is to provide a shaded place to enjoy the outdoors, wood is an excellent choice. Not only do they provide shade, these freestanding structures put the heat diffusing qualities of wood to work overhead, offering a cool place to relax and enjoy your yard even on the sunniest day.
A pergola can be a perfect addition to a backyard to create a shaded, welcoming atmosphere for entertaining guests, a spot for dining and conversation, or a space for kids to play.
