Pergola. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 19:17:51 PM
The structural design of a pergola is a great place for you to grow and showcase beautiful and exquisite vine plants, such as roses and wisteria. It is essential that before you purchase a plant, you pay close attention to its growing habits. If you are aiming for attractive setting, plants that grow high enough to reach and cover the top of the pergola would be your best choice. Another great way to add a touch of beauty to your landscape is by utilizing hanging plant baskets; these can be suspended from the open lattice work on top of the structure. You can also design your garden pergola so that it fits a sitting area underneath. Other options is to use one as a structure to walk under to gain entrance to your backyard or garden, or you can simply use one as an entryway.
