Differentiating Outdoor Structures

Many refer to any outdoor structure as a pergola. While they share characteristics, each has distinct differences that distinguish them from the others. Here are the differences between pergolas, arbors, gazebos, and trellises.


Trellises are garden structures used to support plants and trees. They can be installed alone or can be part of an arbor, gazebo, or pergola wall. In general, trellises have an open, lattice framework that allows plants to grow unobstructed. However, they provide little to no shade or shelter.


Gazebos can add entire outdoor rooms to your backyard or deck. Typically placed towards the outer edge of the backyard, gazebos can be round or polygon-shaped. They can seat many people, and can even come with bench seats installed. Gazebos have open walls, though they can also incorporate trellises. Gazebos are the most expensive outdoor structure to build and require a permit.


Arbors are considered the simplest garden structure that provides shelter while greatly enhancing the space. Arbors are structures with arched roofs used as entrances or gateways and may be used to separate two different garden areas. Sometimes, their roofs can incorporate trellises to allow for plant growth.


Pergolas borrow characteristics from arbors, trellises, and gazebos. Pergolas have slatted roofs that provide shade while allowing plants to grow. They can be attached to your deck or be standalone. Pergola roofs can also be curved like arbors, and trellises can be added to enhance their look overall. Best of all, despite combining aspects of all three, they’re the least expensive to build.
