Our Arbor & Pergola Design & Construction Process

How Our Landscape Designers Transform Your Space

According to your exact specifications, our landscape design team will build you a custom arbor or pergola to match your aesthetic. We will offer suggestions on location, material, size, and style based on the surrounding appeal and the site scope. We want to create a pergola design that matches your vision, but is built in a place that’s protected from heavy rain and with the proper materials to last you many years.

We follow the step-by-step arbor and pergola construction process below to ensure the success of any project in the DC metropolitan area:

  • Frame construction. The pergola frame is usually constructed using pressure-treated pine for the supporting beams and posts.
  • Beam work. The beams and posts are then wrapped with a cellular PVC trim board and painted.
  • Joist design. The joists can be made using several different types of materials, including: PVC, vinyl with an aluminum core, or rough sawn western red cedar, for a rustic look.

The construction and installation process may vary slightly if you choose to embellish your pergola design with extra features. Implementing landscape lighting into the design, for instance, can help enhance the mood for elegant evenings, while wrapped-around flowers and vines can add a touch of color and unique visual interest to make your landscape more beautiful for all seasons.

Benefits of Adding an Arbor or Pergola to Your Landscape

Arbors are great, standalone pieces for your outdoor space. They can introduce structure into your landscape and provide architecture framing for your other plantings and outdoor elements. Many people incorporate climbing vines into their arbors—adding a romantic flair to their outdoor setting.

If you’re looking to add shading, pergolas are an ideal choice. Like arbors, they introduce structure into your landscape, but also serve as an outdoor room. You can implement your pergola design along with a patio and outdoor fireplace, or simply use it as a shaded area by your swimming pool. We can even add a mechanized shade tray so you can open and close the “ceiling” of your pergola for added convenience.

Whether you’re looking to add an outdoor dining space or simply a conversation area, we can help you choose your outdoor furnishings and light fixtures to take your pergola from a simple structure to something of extraordinary beauty and extreme functionality. At Botanical Decorators, we take every detail into consideration. Call us today at 301-948-6625 to get started!
