    What's the difference between a gazebo and pergola?

    Gazebos are beautiful outdoor structures that provide shelter from the sun or rain. They are constructed with solid roofs and open walls that you can often attach curtains or bug netting for your outdoor comfort. These structures are built with sturdy frames in aluminum or wood and are permanent structures that can remain outdoors during all seasons.

    Pergolas are stylish outdoor structures used to provide partial shelter from the sun. Then can be stand alone or attached to the side of your home. These structures have open beams that can act as a base for a covering of your choice or to grow climbing flowers and plants.

    They differ from gazebos in that they lack a solid roof and don’t often have options to attach netting or covering.
