What is a Gazebo?

A gazebo is a roofed outdoor structure. The weather can be enjoyed because of the freedom from the open walls. These structures are typically round, rectangular, or octagonal in shape. Many gazebos also distinguish themselves by having a raised floor. A gazebo is designed to maximize your outdoor living space, transforming a plain garden into a serene backyard vacation. 

What is a Pergola?

A pergola is a structure for the outdoors that consists of a roofing grid of beams and rafters that uses columns for support. Pergolas are larger in scale and sometimes given greater architectural treatment. The tops are flatter and can either attach to a house or be freestanding. Pergolas can be installed on pavements or concrete patios to allow greater flexibility for outdoor furniture and/or grilling equipment to be placed underneath its structure.
