Pergolas are the ideal canvas for interesting outdoor lighting. The roof line gives something to hang pergola lights from, and the open-roof structure allows natural light to filter through, complimenting the planned lighting. This all creates a whole lot of atmosphere, and with a little creativity, can make the pergola into a magical place in the evening.
Here is some pergola lighting inspiration from around the web, and some ideas for products that can be used to achieve a similar look to these designs, without breaking the bank!
Pergolas, pavilions, and gazebos all serve similar functions in a back yard or patio space, but each of these outdoor rooms is distinct. We have created this handy infographic to show you: so what is a pergola? What is a gazebo? What is a pavilion? And what is the difference between them?
Many people find that their back yard doesn’t have the outdoor living space they need. They have a patio, or a deck, but the experiences these places offer aren’t complete. Back in that unused section of lawn over there, or perhaps situated on the hill overlooking the sunset, a lovely gazebo or pavilion may be just what is needed! In this article we discuss several wooden gazebo kits and wooden pavilion kits, and give you all you need to know to create some fantastic new memories in your delightful outdoor room.
After a great deal of time spent researching the market for vinyl pergola kits, we have determined that the New England Arbors Malibu vinyl pergola kit is the best choice on the market today. The Malibu is a 10′ x 10′ pergola with graceful lines, chic style, and beautiful details. It is made of maintenance free vinyl, and will need virtually no care over its life. It is covered by a 20 year warranty against defects. Assembly is pretty simple, and takes essentially a day for two people, assuming they have some experience in putting things together.
Proper shading is a crucial element to creating a pleasing outdoor environment. It is easy to neglect shading a back yard or patio space, and it is often easier to just grab something quick and functional rather than taking time to find the right shade objects, ones that are beautiful, functional, and that contribute to magical, modern outdoor environments.
For those of us who live in and around cities, on small parcels of land with tiny outdoor spaces, it is crucial to maximize every square inch of land, and to supply as much privacy as possible while making the outdoor space feel more expansive than it really is.

Here we will look at trees and shrubs, sun shade sails, market umbrellas, cantilever umbrellas, awnings, pergolas, gazebos, and porches. A mix of several different options may be the best way to create a stunning outdoor space, and we encourage you to get creative! Read More
