July 16, 2013

Lots of Portland homeowners are coming up with ways to beautify their outdoor spaces. Structures like arbors, pergolas and trellises have tons of practical and visual potential. Here are a few ways you can incorporate these eye-catching apparatuses to maximum effect in landscaping:


Use an arbor to frame an entrance.
Whether in the front yard or the back, an arbor can be the perfect frame for the inviting path up to your front door or the walk down into your garden. A real “come hither” look.


Put trellises above doors and windows.
A trellis bearing a full green or flowery load makes a lovely accent over doors, and can provide shade for windows in hot summer months.


Pergola with Dining Area.
If you feel like eating a meal outside, a pergola creates an open-air feel while offering protection from sunlight and light falling objects. If privacy is desired, you can put up curtains in your pergola, or:


Use trellises as walls for privacy.
Hanging trellises with greenery from pergolas or porches can create a private haven – or block views of the unsightly goings-on in your neighbor’s yard.


That’s just the tip of the iceberg with these babies. Need help with your backyard renovation project? Contact us today!
