Backyard Dining Pergola. A cedar pergola overtop a flagstone patio makes an ideal backyard retreat. A grilling area allows food to be prepared tableside. And a porch swing, hanging on one end of the outdoor structure, provides an area to kick back and relax. The pergola-patio is edged with low-growing flowers. This is a lovely spot to enjoy!
Shady arbor bench Imagine sipping your tea or wine in the dappled light of your own backyard arbor bench, your favorite vine overhead. Building a bench and arbor combo is in some ways less complicated than building a standalone bench. The arbor provides the structure, and the bench comes along for the ride with no complex angles or fancy joinery.
