Free standing pergola privacy and shelter? You see pergolas/arbors attached to houses which always seems cluttered. I love the idea of having a freestanding pergola/arbor.this one along walkway to front door. This really opens up the possibilities.
an arbor covering the narrow side yard between the house and the fence. opportunity for a "secret garden". Water feature, flowers, bird feeders whatever you desire. Would be nice between house and detached garage too.
