Wooden Arbors and Pergolas


Wooden arbors and pergolas are perfect for decks, patios and gardens alike.


We are usually asked: “What is the difference between an arbor and a pergola?” Well, a wooden arbors provides a little more shade due to the 2×2 slats resting on the rafters. They are typically spaced 2” apart to cast more shade.

A pergola usually just has its rafters that provide a more open, shaded structure. But, they provide so much more than just added shade – they bring an element of beauty to any outdoor space with vines, flowers or even fruit all thriving on the structure. A pergola or arbor is one way you can create your own little piece of heaven, even when it’s cold outside!

Arbors and pergolas can be custom built to fit any square footage, with designs ranging from simple square overhead structures around seating areas to sprawling pergolas that stretch across yards adding lovely curves and structure anywhere it is needed.

Your new arbor/pergola can be used in so many ways. We build cedar arbors and pergolas and if you’re looking for something a little more maintenance free, we do metal ones as well. Take the next step and incorporate it into your green space.
