Lounging areas away from the house give the owners of this property in Sag Harbor, New York, a place to relax while keeping an eye on the kids playing in the yard.
Pergola: A freestanding cedar pergola provides a feeling of privacy and enclosure without blocking sunlight and breezes. The design was inspired by historic images of local outdoor architecture.
Landscaping: Bamboo stakes draped in climbing roses and clematis that blossom at different times of year are positioned alongside each of the pergola’s eight posts. Once matured, the foliage and fragrant flowers will envelop the structure, providing shade and protection during light rain showers.
