Wooden Pergola – Natural Beauty and Charm
A wooden pergola is an ideal choice for adding natural beauty and charm
to your tropical garden or landscape.
It is a versatile structure that can be used in the garden or landscape
in a variety of ways.
Wood pergolas are available in a variety of materials, such as redwood,
cedar, mahogany, and teak. Styles can be simple or elaborate.
They are usually rectangular in shape and can be attached to another
structure (such as a home), or they can be a free standing structure in
the garden or landscape.
Wood pergolas have clean lines, and are painted white or left the
natural wood color that will age with time. Traditional pergolas are
old-fashioned and romantic, or rustic and warm.
