Build a pergola in your backyard to shade your wood deck or outdoor living space from the pros at Family Handyman®.

Using treated wood set on classical-style columns, create a relaxing oasis perfect for dining al fresco, napping in your hammock or entertaining family and friends. Accentuate with flowering vines or outdoor lighting.

Make your deck, patio or yard even more inviting with the craftsmanship from Family Handyman. Use environmentally advanced treated wood, Ecolife® and Preserve® CA for long term protection-- available from lumberyards in your area.
