Enhance an existing structure with a pergola! They are commonly freestanding structures, but you can attach a pergola onto the side of your house, shed or garage, too. It's a great way to save space and add interest to an otherwise ordinary wall.
Posts in grass. Pergola extends out over grass so I could put in planter. Pergola is higher than roof here -probably needs to align with mine due to height. I like painted concrete and covering half of patio. Pergola design is simple too
