Wood Structures

What is a Pergola? Pronounced “per’go’la, this word dates back to 1645-55 from the Italian Latin word “pergula” –projecting roof, arbor.

A pergola is a custom outdoor frame structure commonly made of wood. The pergola is a frequently used element in landscape design and often has a base of posts and some type of “roof” or arch cover. The top can be an open-air lattice design or a solid covering to provide privacy and shade. Pergolas can be built to attach to your home but can also become the striking stand-alone focal point of your outdoor landscape.

The addition of a Pergola or outdoor wood pavilion can beautifully enrich the area around it. This kind of landscape upgrade has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its pleasing aesthetics, function, and versatility. These wood structures offer a practical aspect by providing a welcome covering to fire tables, outdoor kitchens, entertainment centers and hot tubs. Pergolas, arbors, and pavilions provide a perfect setting for a social gathering. The ease of decorating them also brings an extra “wow factor” to any occasion or season.

Premier Outdoor Environments can construct gorgeous wood Pergolas. In addition, we are design experts in creating wood privacy screens, or lattice structures to hide boring landscape features like air conditioning units and unsightly garbage cans.
