Pacific Pergola Logo




I was so impressed by how structurally sound our pergola was after it was installed in our garden. I didn't appreciate how well built the pergola was until I saw how the pieces were made to fit together with mortise and tenon and the wood pegs locking it together. I'm excited to show my friends and family the great craftsmanship.

Each of the following pergola styles retains the basic timberframe structural elements. All aspects of the pergola are customizable while retaining the vital style cues. A diagram of terms is available.


The Classic Style pergola is reminiscent of Classic architectural tradition.


Native Americans have been constructing sun shelters in the Southwest deserts for centuries using natural materials. These structures provide shelter from the elements and are built of wooden zapatas and vigas. The top is semi-open to the sky being loosely covered by thin Ocotillo canes or sapling poles. A ramada is usually detached from and set apart from the dwelling.


The Asian Influence pergola is a slight departure from the traditional timberframe structure. In this pergola, the lintel beam is actually a double beam, the columns pass directly through the lower lintel beam and into the upper beam. Graceful curves are found throughout the structure.


This style was popular in the 1930s and uses bold geometric shapes and outlines.


This pergola style is the first of several that that have their origins in the Arts & Crafts movement which had its zenith between 1880 and 1910.
