COLUMBIA SC PERGOLA
A Pergola is a wooden freestanding or off the
house structure built as an outdoor sitting area
with lattice or open slat roof for partial
shade. A pergola is good, covered with trellises
and climbers, giving dappled light. However,
many people are wary of a pergola cutting out
too much light to the interior of the house.
Pergola have a flat roof and large joists that
project beyond the support posts. Our pergola is
handcrafted by skilled craftsmen using the
finest materials and finishes. These structures
are sure to add elegance and class to any
setting. Whether you choose our exclusive custom
pergola or our handcrafted cedar open rafter the
solid wood, you have a wide range of options
that will allow you to adapt your pergola to any
garden situation. Provide support for climbing
roses, vines and other plants to create an
opening that draws visual attention through the
pergola and beyond.
Columbia SC Trellises
Trellises are structures originally designed as
a resting and winding place for plants that are
unruly. Our trellises are available in a variety
of shapes, sizes, and designs so that they can
give your garden or outdoor space a unique
decorative flair. Add a wall trellis as part of
your garden decor that is ideal for long vines
or foliage to grow in and around.

Arbors were used to tame the unruly plants that
went sprawling, rambling and twining with happy
abandon throughout the garden. Return to the
graceful arbors that enhanced romantic gardens
of the past. Arbors are a great invitation into
the garden, and we are sure you've seen plenty
of them in all shapes and sizes. Our Arbors
allows you to add additional Classic Arbors to
create a unique and dramatic arbors tunnel.
