A pergola is a beautiful addition to your yard that can be used for anything from a play area, to a seating area, or even just as an accent piece. You may not know where to start when you're looking at all of the different types and styles of pergolas out there though, which is why we’ve put together this list of some great ideas on how to take your pergola to the next level.

Add Plants or Flowers to your Pergola Area for Color and Texture

Something as simple as adding a little greenery to your pergola can really take it to the next level. Certain types of plants can provide shade and create a completely different atmosphere around your outdoor area. “Climber” plants are commonly used with pergolas, but they aren’t the only option. Having pots or planters with your favorite flowers is perfectly acceptable, after all, this is your outdoor living space.

Consider Adding Hardscaping, Such as Patios or Walkways

When you build a pergola at the end of a walkway, path, or specific area of your patio, it becomes more than just a pergola. When you draw up a design that has a purpose, you create a destination or focal point for your entire yard. This is always a good thing to keep in mind when you're trying to make the most of your outdoor space. Luckily for you, Florida Pavers & Pergolas specializes in custom paver and pergola design and installation.
