Adding a pergola to your backyard is an excellent way to create shade, allowing you to enjoy summer day without the sweltering heat of direct sunlight. This custom wood pergola design spaces the lathing across the top very close together. The closer together the lathing is, the more shade it provides. If you prefer more sunlight you would space the lathing further apart. Custom designed and built by Wilmette, IL pergola builder, Archadeck of Chicagoland.
