We just had to show off this unique lantern planter a lady homeowner made for her ShadeScape™ pergola.

Being a lady myself, I admired that this homemade planter lantern is not only beautiful but was built by the hands of a talented lady. She has lights installed on her ShadeScape™ pergola and her lantern started out to be a lantern. In the process, she suddenly thought that flowers in it would be even more delightful. As you can see here, she is right. When you [...]

Stunningly beautiful, at 41 feet long and 25 feet wide this massive-sized pergola covers an entire swimming pool! Paula said her husband came up with the idea of covering the pool with a pergola. It was way better than the original plan. They were going to enclose it all in with glass. The pergola was the right choice. They are way happy with it and it has been perfect for their family. Stepping into the shade of this massive solid wood pergola, Paula is right, it is an extremely pleasing experience. The timbers are heavy-duty, standing majestic-like and when I touched the posts there is a sense of being re-energized by the timber itself. The earth’s primary source of vitality is derived directly or indirectly from the sun and swimming boosts energy levels. Water, sunshine and comforting shelter, all key ingredients to an everyday vacation in [...]

17 Cool Shade Spaces

By | 2018-05-14T10:31:29+00:00 May 14th, 2018|Pergola Kits|

Feeling the cool breezes of shade beneath the massive timbers of a solid wood pergola is a very pleasing experience. You immediately become aware of being re-energized by the timber itself. Wood is a natural and extremely effective insulator. It retains heat during the daytime and releases heat at night. The primary source of the earth’s energy is derived directly or indirectly from the sun. The sunlight warms the earth at an optimal temperature that can sustain life. Sunshine gives us energy and is wonderful, yet too much sun can get uncomfortable and also drain us of energy. Heat is only a shortened way to say heat energy. Energy and matter are the building blocks from which our entire universe is formed. Matter can be seen all around us. Energy, on the other hand, is invisible and so we are not quite [...]
