If you are asking yourself what is a pergola, then this video is for you. If you own a home and are into home improvement projects, you may have heard suggestions about adding or building a pergola before but you don’t know what it is. In this video, you will learn everything you need to know about pergolas, including what they are, what they are used for, and why you might want to add one to your property.
Pergolas are great for gardens and yards because of the shade they provide. They are vertical structures with a roof or slats to create shade and can be placed over walkways or sitting areas. Many pergolas are also decorated with lattices and fancy pillars, but they can be simple too, with just four posts holding up some cross beams. They can help spruce up the look of a yard while providing some functionality as well.
