Freestanding vs. Attached Pergolas Which Suits Your Space?

The beauty of pergolas lies in their versatility. Depending on the layout of your property and your desired function, you can opt for a freestanding pergola to serve as a focal point in your garden or an attached pergola to seamlessly extend your indoor living space outdoors. Our professionals can help you make an informed decision tailored to your unique requirements.
1. Structure and Support
  • Freestanding Pergolas: These structures stand alone and are typically supported by four or more posts. They can be placed anywhere in the garden or yard, offering more flexibility in terms of location.
  • Attached Pergolas: Attached pergolas are connected to an existing structure, such as a house or a building. They often have fewer posts, as they rely on the existing structure for support.
2. Placement
  • Freestanding Pergolas: They can be placed anywhere in the outdoor space, making them versatile for creating standalone seating areas, walkways, or focal points in a garden.
  • Attached Pergolas: These are positioned as an extension of a building, often serving as a transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. They may be attached to a house, garage, or another structure.
3. Design and Aesthetics
  • Freestanding Pergolas: They offer more design freedom as they are not constrained by the existing structure. They can be designed as standalone features, allowing for creative and unique designs.
  • Attached Pergolas: The design of attached pergolas is often influenced by the architecture of the existing structure. They are integrated into the overall design of the house or building.
3. Functionality
  • Freestanding Pergolas: These can be placed strategically to define outdoor living spaces, create shade over seating areas, or serve as an entrance feature.
  • Attached Pergolas: Often used as extensions of indoor spaces, attached pergolas can create seamless transitions from indoor to outdoor living areas. They may also provide shade to specific parts of the house.
