The first and most classic of pergolas is the wooden pergola. These pergolas are the most used and probably the oldest type used as the backyard pergola. They go well with most homes and since they have been around for a while they come in an array of sizes shapes and designs. Because it is easy to cut and design wood some of the more decorative and unique pergolas will be wood. With a wood pergola it is a lot easier to customize as well. You can train vines to grow up them and easily (with a staple gun or nails) attach drapes or an outdoor curtain to it. With a wooden backyard pergola the customizations are out of this world in terms of the possibilities and its the main pergola type that you can have built or can design for yourself. While you can also somewhat customize the size and shape of non-wood pergolas the wooden pergola is the type you can have hand carved and designed specifically to you desires for the least amount of dollars.
Vinyl, on the other hand, is a great maintenance free option that won't require painting or staining. Vinyl is also resistant to rot and decay, and will last much longer than wood. Vinyl typically costs more than wood, but the longevity of the product may pay off in the long run. If you decide to go with a vinyl unit, be sure to look for a UV resistant plastic that won't fade or discolor when exposed to the sun.
Plastic arbors and pergolas can be purchased in almost every color imaginable. When choosing a vinyl unit, be sure to look for a plastic that is treated with a UV inhibitor, so it won't fade or discolor over time. Vinyl is a good choice if you want your end product to be relatively maintenance free, because it won't need to be stained or painted. A vinyl arbor or pergola typically lends itself to a clean and modern design. White vinyl can be an especially attractive choice for an outdoor wedding in the spring or summer.
Installing a pool fence can be pretty simple depending on the material and type of pool fence you choose. It's important to get the dimensions right so that you don't go against the local codes. For instance, the gaps left at the bottom of the fence should not exceed a certain size. Do not attempt to make this type of installation a DIY project unless you have done it before. Make sure you understand the regulations that apply before you begin such a project.
