One of the most exciting and practicable of outdoor landscaping trends at the moment is to transform your outdoor space into something of an outdoor living room, a design idea which can resonate especially in areas such as Southern California which are climate-friendly all year round. However, even in the cozy confines of suburban Los Angeles County, where an outdoor living room complete with specialized outdoor furniture surrounded by wooden terraces and a flowering garden can be idyllic, if you decide to go ahead with this plan, chances are you’ll want something to provide you and your guests with a little shade now and then. You don’t want to waste money on a bulky tarp that doesn’t go with your outdoor décor, but at the same time an elaborate gazebo or archway may be out of your price range. As such, if you still want your outdoor setup to have a fashionable villa feeling while staying within your budget, you might want to consider trying a 12×12 Sonoma Arched Wood Pergola.
Part archway and part overhang, the Sonoma Arched Wood Pergola combines both form and function as it boasts a strong foundation and an elegant wooden design. The wood used in the construction and finish of this model is authentic Douglas fir. Given the strong, firm nature of fir wood, as well as the way in which its glossy finish effectively reflects light, this model promises only the best in terms of sturdiness and style. With the overall product dimensions measuring 12 x 12, and the pergola weighing in at 595 pounds, the Sonoma Arched Wood Pergola can lay claim to being sturdy and spacious without being so large as to completely take over your lawn or too small and lightweight as to feel cheap and/or blow over.
