The outdoor spaces in your home are special in that the addition of some special elements like pergolas and arbors can make them look very attractive, In addition, these spaces provide a certain amount of protection from the weather and can encourage to you to spend some more time in these outdoor areas. Many homeowners are confused when they hear the terms pergolas and arbors.

AMC Pavers & Outdoor Creations has designed and installed some of the most attractive outdoor structures in and around Spring Hill. Often times, one is confused with the other and the fact is that they do look very similar. However, they are essentially different structures and are also designed in specific ways. Take a look at how you can distinguish between them:

The Differences

Pergolas/Arbors An arbor is typically a freestanding structure that has supports on all sides and the top. These are sometimes formed with the use of lattice. It is also considerably smaller than a pergola. Though this structure offers a certain amount of shade, it does not provide protection from the elements as it has a slatted roof. In most instances, it is built over a walkway to the garden or an entranceway and creeping plants grow over it.

In comparison, a pergola is supported by 4 posts and has a slatted roof ā€“ This structure is used like an outdoor entertainment space. It has open sides but some pergola designs are also covered with lattices. These might have some vines growing over them.

Though there are some distinct differences between pergolas and arbors, they are different structures. Most homeowners in Palm Harbor, Tampa and Clearwater who have either arbors or pergolas on their properties grow climbing plants on them- this provides some shelter from the sun and rain.

Value Addition

Pergolas/Arbors The addition of these yard structures is a definite value-add to your home. It is one of the ways of increasing the allure of your landscape.
