A pergola is an outdoor structure consisting of vertical pillars or posts that support a series of crossbeams or rafters on top. The beams create a grid-like pattern that provides partial shade and defines a designated space within the outdoor space. Pergolas are often made of wood or metal and can be freestanding or attached to a building. They serve as an architectural element that adds height, visual interest, and a sense of enclosure. Pergolas are commonly used to create outdoor seating areas, dining spaces, or to define pathways. They also offer support for climbing plants, such as vines or roses, which can be trained to grow and cover the pergola, providing additional shade and a lush, green aesthetic.
