Real Examples & Images of Pergolas on Decks

While we build high-quality luxury pergolas, we build them for real homeowners in primarily suburban homes. To give you inspiration that you can actually use, we’re showcasing real images of pergolas on decks — and highlighting how these pieces completed the spaces:

This pergola adds a great vertical dimension to the elevated back deck. Notice how the lattice provides a great place from which to hang plants — this deck pergola idea adds a strong pop of color.

We love how this attached pergola stylistically ties the deck sitting area together, while leaving the other half fully open. Plus, pay attention to how the white vinyl of the pergola matches the white frame windows and the trim of the home!

High-Quality, Low-Maintenance Kits

We hope these deck pergola ideas and images of pergolas on decks has you feeling inspired. While a truly elegant look is one of the most important traits of your new piece, it isn’t the only one. You want to make sure the pergola kit you invest in will last for decades without requiring tons of maintenance. That’s a guarantee that comes with any Garbrella pergola you buy.

Since pergolas have become the hottest outdoor structure over the last few years, more and more companies are building them — just not to the same level of quality. We’ve seen many big box store pergolas grow mold or rust and fall apart after just a few short years in the elements. The only way to delay that outcome is by repainting the pergola frequently.

That level of maintenance isn’t something most people want to keep up with — and we don’t blame them. That’s why when you buy one of our pergolas, you’ll never need to worry about painting or staining it, and it’ll last for decades out in the elements.
