Pergola/Pavilion Area Design

While some pergolas are designed to stand alone as a featured element in a garden, most are designed as an outdoor extension of the house. A pergola provides shelter from the sun, rain, and wind while extending your home's living space. As a major architectural addition to the home, pergolas are constructed of rafters, beams, and posts that are attached or detached to the home. While an arbor is built simply to support vines or cover a walkway, the pergola is designed to be occupied and used.

J Alan offers a multitude of custom pergola ideas to choose from, depending on your tastes and lifestyle. You can choose to incorporate many elements into a pergola like wet bars or benches, tables, and chaise lounges. Many also opt to add latticework and planter boxes for flowers and vines. A pergola can be an effortlessly stylish way to entertain and enjoy your outdoor space without sacrificing your comfort or budget.

If you already have a patio or deck, a pergola will extend the amount of time you spend outdoors entertaining guests or relaxing. Extending your outdoor living spaces can increase your home's value and your enjoyment of your home.

The term pavilion is often used interchangeably with gazebo. Unlike a pergola, a gazebo is usually a freestanding structure with a pitched roof, while a pergola's roof is flat.

J Alan helps you with the critical decisions in designing your backyard gazebo even before we determine its shape. The location and size of this garden or outdoor feature are vital to the overall design. Garden gazebos can be the entrance or passageway to a garden or a secluded destination for a quiet getaway.

The quaint charm of an outdoor room can add character to a backyard space, especially if you have a large yard or a garden. With J Alan, you don’t have to settle for a traditional appearance. We offer creative and innovative designs that will make your gazebo a unique and inspired addition to your yard.
