Snow is finally melting, the sun has come out, and we’re all as excited as the birds are to get out into the fresh air! Many of you have already started on your backyard planning, such as cleaning up the debris from the winter or preparing the soil for gardening. Some have plans to expand their outdoor living space by adding a deck or patio or putting in a timber structure.

Don’t have any plans yet? That’s okay. There’s still plenty of time to decide what to do with your back yard space before spring comes in full bloom. For those who live in more balmy climates have the benefit of warm weather pretty much year-round. Pools are extremely popular in these areas, such as Florida and Louisiana. We have a gorgeous louvered roof pergola to share with you from Texas!

Canyons Model ALR

This pool is beautifully located at the end of the back yard, where one gets the most of the sunshine and the gorgeous view! With the  pergola placed perfectly at the end, shade is provided both on the patio and in the pool. Along the end of the pool is a pool bar, which allows for a place to sit and eat while watching those in the pool.

The spacious pergola has 6 posts so to allow for a walkway between the 4 posts on the back and the other 2 posts allow for extended shade over the pool. Curtains are attached on the south side to provide additional shade when desired. A ceiling fan is installed in the center directly above the pool bar so that the cool air will be circulated right in the hottest spot of the whole backyard. And most importantly of all, the louvered roof can open and shut at the click of a remote! Now this backyard can have the most of the sunshine, the most of the shade and everything in between!
