Choosing a pergola is choosing to add value to your home as well as shade and structure to your garden, pool, or deck. The very room like structure with its posts and roof type covering make it an ideal focal point and gathering point. It also creates a romantic seating area and an ideal space for outdoor wedding ceremonies.

A very popular trend is to build a pergola over a deck and ad a vertical garden. A pergola is the perfect place to hang planters and give a garden ambiance even when space is limited. Another trend is to suspend objects from the pergola, such as swings, hammocks and lighting. It is important to know how much weight you plan on hanging from the pergola when it is built, but rest assured that a Hill Country Decking pergola is an extremely resistant structure.
