Are you tired of staring out into a bland backyard? Are you ready to spend your sunny days entertaining, relaxing, and making the most of your property? No matter what you have in mind, the expert carpenters at Lehnhoff’s Landscaping can help you transform your outdoor living space into one that delivers high function and beauty. Let us tell you more about our outdoor carpentry services including the construction of pergolas, decks, screened porches, and more.

What is a Pergola?

A pergola is an outdoor feature constructed with columns that supports cross-beams and rafters or sturdy, open lattice overhead. It is common in landscape designs for the top of the structure to be flat, but pergolas can be constructed to feature an archway as well. A pergola can transform an ordinary outdoor seating area into a stunning focal point. People commonly implement outdoor lighting and trained climbing plants or flowers within their pergola design for optimal aesthetic appeal. They can also provide light shade and protection.

How to Choose Between a Deck or Screened Porch

Decks and screened porches both serve as a functional extension of the livable space on your property. So, how do you choose which is best? It all depends on how you see yourself using your space but both of these features are customizable and will increase your ability to enjoy life outdoors, whether you’re entertaining guests or sitting back and watching your kids play in the yard. A deck is the perfect feature if you want to gather with your friends and family to host that Memorial Day weekend BBQ bash or summer celebration.

Unlike a deck, a screened porch creates a true outdoor room with more protection from the elements. Screened porches are ideal in Maryland if you want to enjoy the hottest months of the year while minimizing the disturbance of humidity and pesky mosquitoes. Both of these features will increase the value of your home and can be designed to implement outdoor lighting, seating, plant boxes, and more.
