As the song says, “Summertime and the living is easy!” Indeed, among the many joys of easy summer living is the time spent in your own outdoor space. Whether grandly expansive or simply a small slice of nature, it’s not the size of your back yard but rather the welcome respite it can offer with a pergola that make the difference. Nowhere is this more apparent than on your own custom deck or patio. The designated entertaining space as well as a central spot for relaxation, a deck or patio takes entertaining and relaxation to higher levels.

Built to your specifications, a custom deck, not only is constructed of the materials most suitable to your lifestyle, but also features the details that make it uniquely yours, accommodating your family’s needs and your guests’ comfort alike.

What adds to that individuality and overall contentment is a pergola. Creating somewhat of an open-air ceiling, it consists of cross rafters above a patio or deck, with columns on the side for support. This beautiful structure offers several distinct advantages:


Pergola on DeckWhen summer’s warmth and sunshine become more intense than enjoyable, a pergola provides inviting shade, making your deck or patio even more appealing.

A Cozy Room

The framework, with its open ceiling and sturdy columns, creates the illusion of a room within your back yard or garden, creating a cozy place to relax alfresco.

Green Space

With lovely vines trained to climb up the columns and hanging plants suspended from the ceiling, this becomes additional green space while also lending vertical beauty to your landscape.


The combination of hard structure and soft plants deftly encloses your patio or deck, establishing privacy at the same time. Alternatively, curtains or latticework easily devise “walls” for privacy while retaining the pleasure of fresh air.

Added Home Value

A custom-built architectural addition to your landscape enhances your landscape’s allure, which increases your home’s value at the time of sale by as much as 20 percent.
