Prominent Pergola "A major advantage of freestanding structures over attached pergolas is that you can choose the best site for enjoying the landscape rather than being limited by areas near the house. Close proximity to the building on the left would have made this pergola easy to attach, but standing alone gives it more visual importance."
Add Drama with Turf Get creative with an outdoor space by finding ways to make your lawn part of the design. Here, the circular patch of grass adds to the flow of the landscape and softens the transition between hardscapes. It also acts as a design element, playing off the round heads of flowering hydrangeas, circular container gardens, and stepping-stones off the back door.
