Add shade, vines and hanging plants to your deck with this rustic Sun Trellis Pergola plan. Pergolas are an attractive and practical way to add architectural interest and shade to your backyard. The overhead structure creates shade over patios and sitting areas, letting only a portion of the sun shine through. Also a great focal point for decoration and design by adding vines, climbing plants, lights, hanging baskets and even ribbon, balloons or streamers for special occasions!
