About the Pergola:

The classic outdoor living room features a rustic wood arbor fashioned from cedar posts and reclaimed lumber. Just 8 feet from the property's original grape arbor, the pergola will produce five varieties of grapes and provide a space for families to gather, enjoy water views and relax after a day in the warm summer sun. "We had a huge blank canvas to work with and wanted to make the front yard a usable gathering space since it's all about the view in this location," says Desperate Landscapes host Jason Cameron.
