Sometimes, your outdoor space is missing something. If you don’t know what that something is, then our team is here to help you figure it out. We want you to have a beautiful, yet functional outdoor space that meets all your needs, whether it be to keep your family active or to entertain guests. If you haven’t considered the option already, why not look into a pergola? It might be just what you need to liven up your backyard space and add a little something extra to enjoy. Read on to learn about some of the different options you have.

Entryway Pergola

If you would like a way to break apart two areas, such as your front yard and your backyard, a small pergola might be the perfect entryway into the space just beyond. This also works wonderfully as you guide people into your garden! Some homes, especially in Fort Collins, use retaining walls to set aside gardening areas. With that in mind, you can add a pergola in the space between those retaining walls for added visuals and a smooth transition from one space to the next.

Creating an Outdoor Room

Some people already have large decks, and it can be difficult to create a sense of flow without adding too much furniture. Let’s say you want an area for grilling, another for seating, and then a special area for your hot tub. Let the grilling be right by the open seating, but add a large pergola right over the hot tub area. You can install retaining walls and the pergola to clearly mark this area as a “new room.” This can help your guests have a very clear sense of the deck’s boundaries and layout.

Planning for Weather

While you don’t necessarily want to be out on your deck in the rain, that Colorado sun can still get pretty hot in the summer months. We know you probably want to keep people outside as much as possible, but you need to be cautious of not letting anyone overheat. Feel free to add a pergola over your seating area as a space for visitors to cool down in the shade. To be honest, shade is one of the top reasons people choose pergolas for their backyards. You can also choose to install fans to add even more circulation and freedom from the heat!
