Adding Outdoor Structures To Your Patio
Outdoor structures like gazebos, pergolas, and pavilions can be a stylish and practical addition to any landscape design. Whether you’re looking to add some shade to your backyard, or create the perfect platform for your outdoor kitchen or firepit – a covered patio can provide the perfect space for entertaining or relaxing at home.
A gazebo is a great way to add a cool shaded space to your landscape. They are usually used to relax in the summer heat, but many people find a gazebo to be a great place for other activities. We have had many clients use their gazebos as a place for an outdoor kitchen, firepit, or even a hot tub. And what could give a gazebo a more charming touch than some quality lighting? Picture yourself swinging in a hammock under twinkling lights in your own private backyard getaway.
Pavilions are like open-air gazebos, with multiple directions for people to come and go. Pavilions are typically built on a bigger scale than the average gazebo, with more space for larger groups of people. They are made to be an inviting, open space. Pavilions are usually designed for protecting things like pools and outdoor eating areas.
Pergolas are usually designed with an open framework and roofed. Traditionally a pergola was designed to be used as a garden walk. Expert landscapers would choose plants that would climb the pergola and create their own shade, beauty and privacy. Modern pergolas are now used for a variety of reasons. Some are made to be seating areas next to swimming pools or ponds, and others are just a shaded place to take in the scents of the flowers that grow there and the beauty of the great outdoors.
