Freestanding pergolas are the ones you probably think of when traditional, Victorian-era gardens come to mind. While they are definitely a great addition to your garden area for creating a quiet, contemplative nook, they can be so much more than that nowadays.
Other than gardens, freestanding pergolas also provide some much-needed shade from the hot Paradise Valley sun next to a pool. They can provide a unique architectural feature to any yard and you can even create a pergola patio with them if you’re unable to install an attached pergola for whatever reason.
Freestanding pergolas are highly versatile when it comes to their placement. As long as it can be anchored properly, you can place one just about anywhere you choose. You also have a lot more freedom in what shape and size they are too.
