Ever since we had our stone patio built, I've been secretly wanting a pergola added over the curved wall. My hubby wasn't really sold on the idea since it doesn't provide immediate shade to the area. But when I showed him some pictures of what it might look like, he became interested. Coming up with a plan proved to be a bit difficult. We searched the internet looking for pictures of pergolas built over low curved walls. Didn't think this would be hard to find, but it was. We ended up designing our own. The company we finally settled on was willing to do whatever we wanted (amazing, but for a price). In the end, we have something simple, but striking and reasonably priced . . .
A decorative feature that enhances the look of the patio.

May 2013 Work Begins:
I love the look that the addition of the pergola creates. It really does transform my patio. I'm still tweaking the area, but I now have a comfy place to hang out, and for the Jasmine vine my niece Patricia gave me last year to grow and expand, and a wonderful spot for my hummingbirds to visit.
Take a little time to enjoy,
