Contact us to schedule a consultation with our landscape designers about building an arbor, trellis, or pergola. After discussing what you want and assessing the area where the arbor or pergola will stand, we will make a design blueprint and review it with you.

Pergolas vs. Arbors
The difference between these two landscaping structures is that arbors are typically shaped like an arch while pergolas are tall structures made from vertical and horizontal pieces of wood that can act as a type of shelter. Pergolas can have lattice woven wood pieces that are great for growing vines and the dense foliage can help create more shade.
Why Install a Pergola?
Pergolas are landscaping elements that create visual interest and can act as a centerpiece in a formal garden design. They are also very functional and can be used to extend a covered seating area or patio. Pergolas have many tunnels through the woodwork that are perfect for installing decorative LED lighting and solar lights throughout.
Arbors are usually constructed to form an arch or tunnel and are popular as garden entrance features. Arbors are very popular with photographers because they frame poses extremely well and are a hit at weddings and as selfie stations.
