Whether to provide shade, zone a garden, or offer privacy, pergola ideas can be a crucial element in your backyard’s design. 

They can also be used to frame pathways, or create structure. Considering the purpose of the pergola is crucial to the design that you choose. Will it be a focal point, or a transition? Will there be seating under it? Ideally it should create its own statement with lower lying plants on either side.
