A pergola adds charm and interest to any yard and can be a simple design or intricate structure. Use free pergola plans to enhance your garden or yard and complement your home.

Pergola plans are easily customizable and require few tools. Use redwood or teak for an exotic look, or select treated lumber for an inexpensive and durable structure that will last for years.




Choose a simple structure made of stock lumber to add interest to an entryway or side yard, or plan an eye-appealing structure to shade your patio. Pergolas are also great for training vines and climbing flowers to add color and interest to your home's exterior. Build a pergola with attached flower boxes or a comfortable bench to add charm to your patio or walkway. Use PVC piping for a quick and simple lean-to that is easy to build and attaches to any structure.
