Pergolas, arbor, or arbour is a garden feature forming a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area of vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice, often upon which woody vines are trained.
The pergola is a great structure to include within a garden. It adds height, provides support for climbing plants and is architectural in appearance. It leads you into the garden inviting you to explore the path it is framing, the plants it is supporting or to simply sit under and enjoy a book. . For larger pergolas perspex sheeting can be used to provide protection from the rain, pergolas framing a path can become a clothes line running a re-tractible line between the first and last.
