Custom Pergola Design & Installation in Arizona

Pergolas can benefit any number of yard types. From the homey patio to the expansive back lawn, pergolas can be made to fit just about anywhere. But what is a pergola, exactly?

Sometimes confused with arbors and gazebos, a pergola lies somewhere in-between the two. It consists of columns (2 or 4, depending on the type) that hold up a latticework on top, which can be closed or open. Pergolas are larger than arbors (which are generally small, decorative arches), but usually do not have an enclosed roof or the octagonal shape of gazebos. (Though a pergola with a roof is still an option.)

Pergolas are a worthwhile addition to an Arizona home for many reasons. For starters, they extend living space, creating a welcoming space outdoors to enjoy any time of the year. You’ll actually want to spend more time outside, whether it’s to relax and read a book with a cool beverage by your side or entertain family and friends on the weekends.

Pergolas provide just enough shade without being stifling and help protect your outdoor furniture from the elements as well. Retractable pergola covers and canopies can provide additional shade. Even a hot, Arizona summer afternoon can be pleasant with the help of a strategically placed pergola.

Aside from the immediate benefits, pergola installation is also an easy, inexpensive way to increase your property value and add curb appeal, both of which come in handy if you ever decide to sell your home.

We don’t just build custom-made pergolas in Phoenix! We also serve Peoria, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and the rest of the Valley.

Choosing the Right Type of Pergolas

Attached Pergolas

While freestanding pergolas may have been the traditional design, attached pergolas have quickly made a name for themselves amongst home and business owners.

Attached pergolas have a multitude of benefits. They tend to be the more budget-friendly option since they don’t require quite as many materials as a freestanding one. (Attached pergolas are usually anchored by two outer posts while the other end is secured to the house itself.)

Attached pergolas also create a nice threshold between your indoor and outdoor living space. They also make excellent, cozy areas to enjoy outdoor dining and entertaining. Speaking of which, attached pergolas are the perfect spot for outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and grills. With the addition of some comfy outdoor furniture, you have yourself a quiet place for some quick fresh air or to spend an entire evening outside.

Freestanding Pergolas

Freestanding pergolas, as the name implies, are those that stand alone and are not attached to other structures. The biggest advantage of freestanding pergolas is their flexibility: Where they can be placed, their size and height, and orientation. You can really get creative with these types of pergolas since you’re not bound to the limits of attaching them to your home or other structure.

This type of pergola is very handy if the structure of your house is not compatible with anchoring an attached one to it. They also make great additions to pool areas, providing some protection from the sun. Freestanding pergolas are the perfect addition to gardens, creating a secluded sitting area where you can watch the bees and butterflies.

Choosing the Right Pergola Materials: AlumawoodⓇ

Outdoor pergolas can be constructed with many materials, including wood, teak, metal, vinyl, and fiberglass. AlumawoodⓇ is a newer material that has gained favor for use in pergola designs in the southwest. It combines the best qualities of wood and aluminum. It is made of aluminum that has been made to look like wood. AlumawoodⓇ is much less expensive than other pergola materials and less maintenance. Unlike real wood, AlumawoodⓇ won’t burn, crack, peel, rot, split, or warp. You won’t need to re-seal or coat your AlumawoodⓇ pergola either. And, because it’s made of aluminum, it will help protect your outdoor furniture from the elements as well.


Pergolas provide an extra living space outdoors that provides just enough shade without being too closed off. A pergola consists of columns (2 or 4, depending on the type) that hold up a latticework on top, that can be open or closed.

Building a pergola depends on the space available in a yard. The process typically consists of choosing a location and design, setting the posts in concrete, adding in the columns, setting the beams over the pergola columns, placing the rafters, and then adding in the lattice.

There are a variety of options for a backyard pergola. You can choose between an attached pergola or a free-standing pergola. Alumawood is a great material to use, it lasts forever. With a lifetime warranty, it never has to be painted. We install, level, and stringline for perfection.

What Are Our Customers Saying?

“Cannot say enough good things about our experience with Turf Monsters.

Before we were rarely spending time in our backyard because the space was underutilized and not functional. We wanted to maximize the area in which we could add furniture and comfortably relax. The guys at Turf Monsters did exactly that! We are finally able to enjoy our backyard.
Mike paid great attention to detail and made sure we were satisfied all the way through.

We couldn’t be any happier with the way this project turned out. Mike and his team did an amazing job with everything from design to execution. Great company, would highly recommend.

“I am REALLY happy that I chose Turf Monsters for my backyard. They were totally professional, prepared, timely, and at great prices. I researched over a dozen companies in the metro Phoenix area. All provided “quotes” of sorts, but Mike and the team at Turf Monsters really helped me with what I wanted as well as additional ideas (but not necessarily more money) that really made the entire project come to life. My kids, family, and friends all love it. I’m really happy I made this decision and would 100% recommend Turf Monsters to anyone. Go for it!”

I’m really impressed with Turf Monsters’ work and quality. I got a few quotes and felt most comfortable with Mike. The American made material is what sold me. The crew leader and his guys did a solid job.

Mike and his team did an excellent job of transforming our barren backyard into a beautiful green oasis. I got multiple quotes and Mike was responsive, informative, and listened to what we wanted. The pricing was competitive and included everything we needed. The crew was courteous, professional, and did a quality job. They were in and out in a few days and left the area cleaner than when they arrived. We are looking forward to enjoying the putting green and spending time in the backyard again for years to come. I would highly recommend Turf Masters for anyone looking to do a project in their yard!

Mike and team did an exceptional job on our lawn! From the initial meeting to final inspection, Turf Monsters was meticulously focused on delivering an end product that we would be thrilled with. And we were! Thanks, Mike and team. You guys are fantastic!
Joanna G.
We love our new backyard! There are many options to pick from and we are super indecisive. They were super patient with us during the decision process. They got the work done in 2 days and it looks great. It has held up well considering high foot traffic and 2 dogs. We will absolutely be hiring them when we are ready to complete our patio with the pavers and have been referring them to friends and family.
Haley D.
Mike and his team are amazing!! Mike came out to look at our backyard, we told him what we wanted and he designed it for us within 45 min we had a design and a quote. We then picked out our turf, pavers, and rock and they began that following week. Our backyard was finished in 4.5 days. The Turf Monster team worked hard every day and did an amazing job. Every day they cleaned before they left and came every morning at 7-7:30 to start. Before I buy anything, I look at reviews!! And Turf Monsters have 5 stars and are consistent with my review. Give Mike a call to get a quote! Quality and price!! Amazing
