Pergolas are the perfect solution for creating a cozy and inviting backyard space. When looking for outdoor pergola ideas, be sure to keep in mind the type of climate you live in. if you live in an area that snows a lot, be sure to use something that can withstand the weight of snow. If you’re in a desert climate, you’ll want something that can help block the rays of the sun during summer.
