(Sandi Christian, San Clemente, CA)The pergola above is located a good distance from the main house. Without the appropriate trappings, that could mean that no one will ever use it. This YardShare contributor had the good sense to add:
- Pathway Lighting so they can easily get to the pergola even at night
- Comfortable Seating so theres a place to sit (duh!)
- Attractions the birdhouse and birdbath provide some entertainment. What you cant see from this angle is that the pergola also provides a view of a nearby putting green. Thats three birdie attractions for the price of one!
(Scott Brun, Knoxville, TN)Pergola shmergola! This one is located so close to the house that its really more like a covered deck. Thats fine - dont get hung up on definitions. Plant your pergola wherever you want it and fill it to the brim with luxurious items that make you feel like using the space. Otherwise, whats the point?
