Dedicated section with sun and shade


  • This image illustrates an nice patio layout for both dining and entertaining.
  • The featured piece is the pergola over the dining area.
  • It provides both sun and shade as family members and friends enjoy a summer meal on the patio.
  • But it’s the decorative pergola that adds to the overall patio and landscaping design.
  • Multi-sectional setup The image shows a dining set on the top level under the patio eave – another second dining set on the second level – and again the third dining set under the pergola. We have to assume that this gives the household options when it comes to dining – especially if the weather changes.

Covering or adding to the deck


  • Let’s do this – imagine that the pergola in the image was removed – in other words, visualize that the pergola is not part of the deck.
  • Now what would the deck area look like with the pergola removed? Pretty bland and simple.
  • You can now see how a pergola not only adds shade for the deck but more importantly, it adds beauty and style.
  • Using light Note the pergola post cap – it has a lighting feature that illuminates the pergola and deck. A nice touch.
