The Differences Between Pergolas And Arbors

The blistering Santa Rosa, California sun can render your deck almost useless during the hottest summer months. The thought of grilling for family and friends is completely out of the question. Unwinding outside after a hard day at work is too uncomfortable without shade. Thankfully, Santa Rosa Deck and Fence Contractors can build that covering for you and create a comfortable area for you to host that barbecue and decompress after work. We are pleased with our installation of arbors, pergolas and other shade structures installed above your deck or patio.

Both Pergolas and arbors are outdoor structures that can add architectural interest to gardens, patios, and other outdoor spaces and often contribute beauty and  shade as well. While they share some similarities, there are distinct differences between pergolas and arbors in terms of their design, purpose, and functionality.

A pergola differs from an Arbor fistly in size. It’s a larger, more substantial structure compared to an arbor. It consists of vertical posts or columns supporting horizontal beams or rafters, resulting in an open framework. Pergolas are designed to provide partial shade and define outdoor spaces. They often have an open roof, allowing sunlight to filter through while providing some relief from direct sunlight. Pergolas can be attached to a building (like a house or a wall) or can be freestanding.

An Arbor, on the other hand, can sometimes be referred to as a trellis or a pergolalette as it is a smaller and more decorative structure. It typically is made of vertical posts and framework made of latticework and is often in the shape of an arch. Arbors are often used to create an entrance or gateway to a garden, pathway, or other outdoor area. They are commonly used to support climbing plants like vines and roses, which grow and cover the arbor’s structure, creating a natural, green canopy.

In summary, while both pergolas and arbors enhance outdoor spaces with their unique characteristics, pergolas are larger, more functional structures designed for shade and outdoor living, while arbors are smaller, decorative elements primarily used as entrances or pathways adorned with climbing plants.

Both can create a unique respite for one’s backyard which seem to filter out the business of the outside world and offer a great place for family gatherings and memory making.
