A pergola is an obvious choice for taking your backyard to the next level. It looks chic and serves as the perfect spot to add lighting, designate a seating area and just create a special vibe. Of course picking out a pergola involves getting in your car, schlepping to the nearest home goods store, cruising the aisles for that just-right option and lugging it all home. Or, at least, that used to be the case. Now, you can buy them at Amazon. Yep, that Amazon. There's a huge selection of pergolas to choose from, at a wide range of price points. Ready to kick your backyard style up a notch? Consider these....
"Overall, a really amazing item and great quality," said a happy customer. "The price cannot be beat!! Originally I got quoted $3,000–$5,000 for a covered patio, so, after finding this one, I figured If it didn’t work out, no harm no foul."
"Best addition to our backyard," said a five-star fan. "Very sturdy and looks amazing. Love the added power box, which is great for phone chargers."
"Really great pergola, said one fan. "I put it together by myself except for the few times I needed helpers to hold things. Seems sturdy and looks great. The instructions are A$$."
"You can use it in the rain because if the amazing sloped design and built-in gutter system," pointed out a five-star fan. "We opted for this pergola because it had everything we wanted and more. This was a great purchase and, as a result, we use our patio way more than we ever have."
"We quickly turned our standard deck into a resort-style outdoor space," said a satisfied shopper. "The style is eye-catching with clean lines and a modern look. Our deck faces west and the slat wall on the back side provides some nice block from the sun. The canopy is heavy duty and appears it will stand up to the elements for a long time. The pergola was fairly easy to assemble."
"What a fantastic experience," said a five-star reviewer. "Me and a buddy assembled the pergola in about five hours, including a couple breaks. The instructions were very well-written and every hole lined up perfectly. Backyard Discovery really knocked it out of the park! A very well-engineered and beautiful-looking product. My wife really likes it, which adds a two thumbs up!!"
