In architecture, a pergola is defined as a structure consisting of columns that support a roofing grid of beams and rafters. This roofing grid may be left open or covered so as to create an outdoor area sheltered from sunlight and rain. A pergola can be freestanding or attached to the house.
Therefore, a timber pergola will have the same usage and design principles as a pergola by extension, except that all the members are timber. Selection of the correct timber and adherence to proper structural design guidelines are imperative in building a pergola that can last you for generations.
