Pergola Designs can vary with your imagination. I designed this one for my garden, when I wanted a place to plant some climbing roses.
My handy husband constructed it for me, in no time. (He's so wonderful)
I now have it planted with 'Super Dorothy', 'New Dawn', and 'Zephrine Drouhin' Roses. (All doing well)
Note; See the "Climbing Roses link at right!
That was last year!

These structures are constructed of Wood, Plastic or Metal. Typically the oldest ones were made from wood.
The material used to construct the pergola has a huge impact on the look and use.
Wood The oldest- Can be a Do It Yourself You can paint or stain to match your house or other outdoor structures. It should be made from pressure treated wood- but it still will eventually rot.
Plastic Makes a beautiful more modern looking Pergola- Many designs available. Comes in just about any color you would want - No painting or staining to do.
Metal The most durable- goes very well with wrought Iron gates and fences- Could rust, depending on the material you choose- Aluminum does not rust and is very light weight.
