Pergola

Pergola

 

an arbor or a lightly trellised passageway of arches or pillars. Pergolas provide shelter from the heat. In 16th-century terraced gardens that were almost devoid of shade and in the 17th- and 18th-century formal parks, pergolas were three-dimensional accents against a background of plants pruned to appear as wall-like espaliers. They are used today in parks.
