The History of Pergolas
Your patio and garden are the basic elements of an outdoor living space. But to create a truly relaxing spot beyond your patio door the gardens and structures need to be built up. The ancient Greeks and Romans knew this and designed beautiful outdoor spaces of all different sizes that included arbors, trellises, and the most impressive outdoor structure of all, the pergola. Imagine how amazing your Bloomington Minnesota (MN) home will look with this piece of classic architecture in view from the window.

What Exactly Is a Pergola?
Pergolas are designed using three or more support posts with beams running between them, creating dappled shade– lines or strips of shadow that break up the intense summer sun we experience here in Bloomington Minnesota (MN). Pergolas create a structure that is ideal for growing vines and climbing roses. The beams can be scalloped and shaped for decorative appeal. You can also design pergolas of differing heights to interconnect for a unique overhead feature that creates a luxurious and intimate feeling. In its most simple form a pergola will create only dappled shade for your patio or deck. But with vines and plants growing over top of the structure you can easily create a visually attractive backyard feature for your Outdoor Living Area.
