What is a Free Standing Pergola?

A free-standing pergola is an outdoor garden structure forming a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area of vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross beams and a sturdy open lattice. They serve as a striking focal point and provide a functional space to entertain guests, dine, or relax. Unlike attached pergolas built to extend from one’s home, free-standing pergolas stand independently, making them versatile and adaptable to various locations in your yard. These structures can be customized with multiple materials and styles to complement any architectural aesthetic, enhancing the beauty and functionality of your outdoor space.
