Graceful garden canopies

A pergola is like a garden ceiling — a way of creating an intimate space or passageway using living plants to create shade. We went looking for examples of this ancient garden feature and found some stunning pergola pictures. Not a gardener? Not to worry. These pergolas are an architectural statement by themselves. Get inspired by these pergolas from around the globe, starting with this one from Hestercombe Gardens in Somerset, UK.
