A pergola is a structure that is secured to the ground with post or columns. It is not uncommon for a pergola to be attached to a house or to connect two structures. Some pergolas are free standing. Pergolas use an open-lattice concept where the lattice covers a large area. The lattice is commonly found on the on the top of the pergola beams. Some pergolas use lattice around the top edges and between the posts to create a larger focal point. A pergola does not provide protection from rain and weather. However, it will provide shade and create a great place for added outdoor living space.
A gazebo is a structure that can be round, square or even in a hexagon shape. A gazebo will have a solid roof and solid floor. Usually, a gazebo has built-in seating along the rails.
