Shade a sunlit pathway with a pergola that extends all or part of the way along its length. Planters filled with flowering plants fastened between supports cross the walkway overhead adding color and fragrance as well as shade. Hanging baskets, small trees, and plants in tall planters shade the sides of the path.
If you dream of being somewhere like Tahiti or Polynesia, sitting under this pergola will make you think that you’re already there. The arched roof of the pergola is covered with thatch. The open wicker furniture adds to the island feel, but to further the theme, add tropical plants like potted palms, bird of paradise, orchids, or plumeria.
This unique pergola incorporates a living tree into its structure. The stone wall is built around the tree so that its trunk and one branch appear to break through the wall. The trunk and other branches support the pergola’s roof. A wood plank table, tree trunk stools, stoneware place settings, and wildflowers provide the perfect accents.
This casual, open pergola lets you enjoy your outdoor living space even when the sun is beaming down from high overhead. When you feel the need to retreat into the shade, you don’t need to move except to extend the fabric panels out between the slats in the roof of the pergola.
