If you are wanting to add beauty to your backyard, a pergola is an excellent addition to your landscaping. This outdoor structure can be accented with climbing plants that add a shady spot to gather and relax with family or friends. It functions like an outdoor area to host guests, similar to a balcony or patio. At Family Fence in Utah, we offer both timber and vinyl options depending on your entertaining needs.

Timber pergolas: offers your decor the warmth that rugged, rustic outdoor style brings to a home. Our timber posts are 8×8, with support beams, rafters and joints. They can be stained to match your decorating style.

Vinyl pergolas: these are clean and attractive as well as sturdy and strong – thanks to the galvanized steel posts, and glue-laminated lumber inside the support beams – for a long-lasting structure. They can handle Utah’s wintertime snow loads and are virtually maintenance free.
