Adding a pergola for your Towson home is the perfect way to enjoy the rest of your summer. With the right landscaping company, you can have the backyard of your dreams, complete with a gorgeous pergola. It’s not too late to create your dream summer landscape. With these pergola ideas, you’ll enjoy your outdoor space well into the fall.
Work With Your Yard
Before you begin your pergola project, it’s important that you understand the look of your home as well as your landscaping. Since a pergola ties your home and backyard together, you want to find ways to incorporate elements of each. Your pergola should be beautiful but it shouldn’t stand out too much either, so finding a design that makes sense for your home is smart.
Adding a pergola to the outside of your home creates an easy way to transition from the indoors to the outdoors and vice versa. You can step outside and remain protected from the elements while still being able to enjoy them at the same time. It also adds a beautiful look to the back of your home.
Your pergola doesn’t have to be anything huge or overbearing. For smaller homes with smaller yards, it’s easy to design a pergola that is simply a design for one part of the yard or patio. It’s a great way to dress up an otherwise boring space.
Creating A Focal Point
Pergolas are also great for creating a focal point in your backyard. If your yard needs a little something extra, designing a piece of outdoor carpentry as the focal point of your outdoor space makes your yard feel elegant and exotic.
For Your Pathways
If you have pathways connecting different parts of your yard, creating a pergola over the pathways is a great way to create a bit of protection from the elements. While walking from the pool or patio to the main house, having a roof overhead keeps you feeling safe and contained and also looks beautiful.
