Patio kits can be designed in a number of ways, based on the requirements of the owner. If providing shade is the primary aim, then it has to be covered with a canvas to stretch over the top of the pergola. Smaller wood pergolas are very common in gardens and yard landscapes. They also help to mark a point of exit or entry from one place to another. When the sides are latticed it would help the climbers and plants to grow up the pergola. There are many types of flowering plants to decorate the wood pergola, to give a visual appeal.
