Arbors Pergolas and Trellises
Arbors, pergolas, and trellises are classic installations that can breathe new life into dull landscapes, and because they are often simple in design, they can do this without costing the homeowner an arm and a leg. If you've been thinking about a unique and affordable way to boost your home's curb appeal, these three structures may be just the kinds of accents you're looking for.
Weather it’s a suburban oasis or a sprawling country style verandah, landscaping additions like arbors, pergolas, and trellises don't just look great, they can actually boost your home's selling price by 4 to 5 percent! Though none of these three items is going to do the job on its own, each is capable of increasing the beauty of your exterior and making your home stand apart from the rest in the minds of potential buyers.
When covered in climbing plants, a pergola becomes a fantastically shady spot to entertain under during the hot summer months; these installations don't always need vines, however, to help homeowners beat the heat. The top of a pergola can easily and inexpensively be covered with canvas, allowing you a shady spot out of the sun when you want it, and a striking landscape feature all year round.
Some trellises and similar frame-style accents are designed specifically to provide additional privacy. Our homes are our safe-havens, and feeling safe from prying eyes in your back yard can be just as important as it is in your living room. Privacy trellises offer an inexpensive, easy-to-install, and beautiful way to extend your onlooker-free space without sacrificing your landscape's aesthetic appeal.
