Set off your sculptures in a section of the garden with another sculpture, such as an arbor, pergola, gazebo or trellis. This outdoor room, by garden designer Susanne Hudson, incorporates Gothic-style church windows.
The front terrace of this British Virgin Island home features an infinity-edge freshwater pool and a Pergola Gazebo with thatch roof. Situated in the private community of Oil Nut Bay the property enjoys 111 feet of beach frontage.
The owners of this lovely backyard enjoy entertaining outdoors. To make that easier, designers replaced an old gazebo with a chef-grade outdoor kitchen and patio. The space includes a covered sitting area with television and a flagstone patio shaded by a large pergola.
Sometimes the best spot for your outdoor retreat is a sun-splashed area. If you’ll be enjoying your retreat during the day, even if it’s only on weekends, it’s worth investing in some kind of shade. A simple patio umbrella can cast enough shade for a table and chairs, or consider adding an awning to your home to shade a greater area. Other options for creating a cooling pool of shade include a permanent structure, like a pergola (add vines for color) or gazebo. For a portable shade option, check out pop-up canopy designs. You can also use a temporary canopy to help you determine where you might want to add a more permanent structure in future.
