Pergolas for Shade and Style in Your Yard

Refreshing shade! Enjoy your outdoor living space more often by installing a pergola.

  • Recharge by yourself while you read a book, work on a laptop, or indulge in a craft project.
  • Spend time with family and friends while you savor a meal, play a game, or socialize.
  • Protect you and your guests from the sun’s damaging UV rays and provide shelter from the rain.
  • Pergolas are also an attractive addition to your home and add property value.

Where to Install Your New Pergola

The YardDoc handyman and landscape teams have years of experience and will help you choose the best location. You’ll want to consider both function and aesthetics.

Here are some of the most beneficial spaces for pergolas in the Austin area:

Outdoor Kitchen, BBQ Island, or Grilling Area

Who wants to stand in the sweltering sun and cook over a hot grill? Or serve up soggy steaks in the rain? Pergolas provide weather protection that entices you to make more meals outside. Less mess, more fun.

Eating Area

You may have a simple paver patio with a table and chairs, or a countertop island with bar stools, or even permanent stone seating benches. Eat, drink, and be merry under your pergola any time of the day or night. The design could extend past the cooking area to cover your dining area, too.

Pool Deck or Patio

Relax by the pool, or dry off after a swim, out of the sun. Compliment your pool landscaping with a coordinating pergola design.

Seating or Entertainment Area

Seating and social areas are the most popular locations for pergolas. Covering patios, fire pits, and outdoor fireplaces are favorites. We’ve also come across Austin homeowners who enjoy watching television outside. The YardDoc handyman team can build an outdoor TV island that protects your electronics. Add seating, snacks, and a pergola to keep reflections from the sun or outdoor lighting off the viewing screen.
