Pergolas amp up the curb appeal and provide a shade from changing weather conditions. They can provide support for climbing plants, lighting fixtures, swings and hammocks. They can also function as an extension of your home and you can create an outdoor dining area or a living space under their shade. Here are different ways to decorate with a pergola:
1. Install a Bamboo Pergola Over a Water Feature
