What is a Pergola?!?!

                I don’t recall ever hearing the word “pergola” before I got into the business of making my guests backyards here at Nelson’s Hometowne Recreation into their own little slice of Heaven.  Last week, I had a guest mention that she would like a Pergola leading to her new spa. From the look on my face, I can guess she knew, as well as I did, that I had some research to do.

                A Pergola is defined as an archway consisting of framework covered with trained climbing or trailing plants. The first use of the word Pergola can be found to describe a projecting eave in an Italian poem written in 1645. The word Pergola is also used to describe different gazebo like structures and any area for sitting that allows a light breeze and minimal sun exposure.
