A pergola can add shade to your outdoor living space in spots where the sun shines too bright. These homeowners chose to attach a pergola to their deck and it looks gorgeous and adds a design element that is pleasing to look at. The deck below is made of TimberTechs Rustic Elm Decking and what’s great about it is, you don’t have to stain or paint the boards for the life of the deck. This deck fits perfectly where it is and has enough space to enjoy a meal outside or simply relax under the sun. This Deck & Pergola combination was built & designed by River Forest, IL designer Archadeck of Chicagoland.
