What’s the difference between a trellis, arbor and pergola?
You’ve probably heard these three terms used for all of the structures below, but there is actually a difference between each. All three are used to create a beautiful garden or backyard space, can incorporate plants and landscaping into their design and are generally made out of the same material.
A trellis is typically a more simple design that stands alone, leans against a wall or fence and are designed primarily for plants and vines to grow and crawl around. You can combine a trellis with a walk through gate or pergola structure for a more substantial trellis design.
Arbors generally have elements of a trellis that allow for plants and vines to
grow up and around them in an arched shape you can walk through.
Pergolas can also be used to support plant life and climbing vines, but more often provide a structure
with a roof, can combine the use of columns, and can be used as a patio adding lighting elements and
even power sources. There are multiple uses, variations and designs and Iron Wood fence and gate loves
creating one of a kind pergolas to coordinate with your patio needs. We can create an open roof or closed roof
pergola with plenty of customized features.
