Interested in transforming your backyard into an inviting entertainment space? A pergola may be the answer. Pergolas add function and beauty to your property. They are used to cover an area and provide shade or to offer a place to hang plants. We at Boulder Falls Landscape are proud to offer quality pergola construction services!
Wood Pergola Options
At Boulder Falls Landscape, we specialize in wood pergolas. Wood is durable, it has a long lifespan, and it’s easily customizable in both its design and color, making it blend seamlessly with your home. Below are the most common types of wood used for pergola installation.
- Cedar. Cedar is a hardy wood that withstands the elements, and it is very simple to paint. Thanks to its lightweight composition, it is easy to handle.
- Pressure-treated Pine. Although this option is not as aesthetically pleasing as others, it is inexpensive and lasts a long time. This makes it a smart choice for budget-minded homeowners. It is treated with a pesticide, so it repels insects and will not rot.
- Douglas Fir. Fir is a beautiful choice, but it must be elevated from the ground and periodically inspected for damage.
Wood pergolas are sure to increase your property’s value. Whether you have several pergola ideas in mind or none at all, we can help. We’ll talk with you, learn your goals, and come up with a pergola design to fit your needs and your budget. Vancouver WA is known for its wondrous natural surroundings, so having an outdoor retreat will provide you with a place to relax comfortably in the elements.

Professional Pergola Ideas and Design
A beautifully constructed pergola starts with proper planning and design. This is the only way to ensure your custom design complements your space and provides additional features including lighting and audio equipment.
Hiring a pergola design expert will help save time as well. Prepping the area will be a timely task that requires patience, especially during the leveling process. Professionals have experience that allows them to get to work and complete all installation tasks much quicker than novices.
A contractor may also end up saving you more money on your pergola installation. Although it is necessary to pay for the labor, there will be no mistakes that require replacement materials. When dealing with high-end pergola materials, eliminating the need to replace damaged pieces of wood may cover the cost of professional services.
Reasons to Hire a Pergola Contractor
Many homeowners attempt to approach pergola construction as a DIY project. But this can be quite expensive and requires skills and tools for correct installation. Many people also do not understand the safety issues involved with these types of construction projects. For example, pressure-treated wood or a concrete base is necessary to stabilize the structure. Also, if the pergola will be placed over an existing deck, bolt-down brackets are a must. When installing wooden pergolas, a person will need to purchase additional pieces and hardware, which raises the cost.
