Custom built backyard pergola

Pergolas are a valuable addition to any landscape. Well built pergolas help families facilitate outdoor dining events, and create relaxing outdoor living spaces. At Cottonwood Landscapes, we do pergolas the right way with large, high-end timbers, true craftsmanship, and proper integration into the overall design of the yard.

We want families to be able to get the most out of the land that they own, both in a practical and aesthetic way. At the end of the day, that’s what landscaping is all about. We know that the people of our community in West Jordan and the surrounding areas want outdoor spaces that fit the needs of them, their friends, and their family. A pergola installed by Cottonwood Landscapes can address these needs, and can withstand the harsher elements of Utah.

    Types Of Pergolas​

    • Gable Pergolas: If you know anything about roofing, you know what a gable roof is. A gable roof is designed with angles that help modulate water buildup on a roof, and also help protect a roof from wind damage, over time. A gable pergola is essentially a pergola with a slanted roof. Gable pergolas are easy to blend in with the roof of your actual home if you want to design your pergola directly off the side of your existing structure.
    • Sail Pergolas: A sail pergola is designed without a solid roof in mind. Instead, they are built so that you can attach a piece of cloth or canvas across the roof or walls to create a temporary covering. This way, you can take the cloth down in the winter, or when wind or rain pick up.
    • Skillion Pergolas: A skillion pergola has a single surface roof that curves to one side. This prevents water from building up on top, which can cause water damage, over time. It also helps prevent a pergola from being destroyed by devastating wind. Overall, a skillion pergola is a sleek-style that is frequently used in public spaces, such as parks, for pergolas.
    • Open Top Pergolas: An open top pergola has a slotted roof that is made out of beams of wood, or even bamboo. Pergolas with an open top don’t have the same protection from precipitation as one with a solid roof, but they allow for open airflow and are quite comforting. One popular way that people use open top pergolas is by growing vines and plants over the roof, which creates a stunning landscape attraction.

    Inspiration For the Occasion

    At Cottonwood Landscapes LLC, we understand that every home and homeowner is different. Your yard requires a special touch that only our talented designers can provide. Learn more about some of the uses that our customers commonly have for retaining walls, below:

    • Segment the backyard into different terraces with varying levels of elevation. This helps organize your backyard, better, and makes it aesthetically pleasing.
    • Separate your patio from the rest of the backyard with a retaining wall that puts your patio at a lower elevation from the rest of your yard, making it appear cut out.
    • Create a border in your front yard by placing retaining walls between your yard and the sidewalk. This is especially great if you use climber plants to adorn your walls.
    • Outline your driveway by raising your yard up on a retaining wall around the concrete of your driveway.

    Pergolas Expand The Use Of Your Yard

    Pergolas are design elements that increase the value of your property because they expand the possibilities of use for your yard. Pergolas invite the family out for parties, barbecues and calm evenings spent enjoying the weather and the stars. They help you see the possibilities of a wedding reception, a block dinner party, and beautifully-framed photos outdoors. They can even be helpful additions to a hot tub area.

    Although ancient pergolas were often made of wooden latticework and sculpted stone columns, today we favor light and durable materials that will stay strong through the punishments of harsh weather conditions. That might include vinyl, aluminum, and fiberglass in addition to traditional wooden options.

    Overall I would say I am pleased with the design process and the installation. I had them regrade the slope and replace almost everything in my back yard. They replaced some clay with soil, regraded everything to slope away from the house, added a paver walkway, installed sod, and several other items. The workers showed up on time and worked very hard to get job done right and in a timely manner. The landscaping is beautiful, the paver walkway looks amazing, and most of the project looks great. You can tell that they know what they are doing and care about their work. My only frustrations were how they accidentally broke a rock feature and also how they missed some quality checks. Missing paver sand, pop up drains being buried too deep, and other minor items would all be quick and easy fixes if they had inspected the work or else responded to my requests before the ground froze. The good news is that they agreed to look at the missed items, and they agreed to fix them later… but I will have to wait 3-4 months for the ground to thaw and then hope that they are still willing to resolve everything then. They definitely got the most important things completed correctly in this project, and it really does look great. But it would have been a better experience if the final touches had been completed correctly and in a timely manner.

    I hired Cottonwood Landscaping for 3 projects over 2 summers. A phenomenal job on the paver patio, the focal point of the yard. They were able to provide me with a landscaping vision that I could understand. I had bids from other companies who wanted to cut corners and use low quality materials. The plants and trees that were planted grew well. Their 6 inch steel edging is great. Drip watering in all planter beds.

    Common Questions

    Can A Pool House Be A Guest House?

    While not its main purpose, a pool house can double as a guest house if you want or need it to. However, the pool house design should ensure that guests are not exposed to cleaning chemicals, and that pool equipment is safely stored out of the way so it’s not a tripping hazard. You want the guest house to be a place your loved ones return to time and again, and a pool house may not be the best fit.

    Can A Pool House Store Yard Tools

    If you need a place to store a lawn mower, pruning tools, and other supplies for yard work, we suggest having a separate shed or outbuilding for that. To avoid cross-contaminating any fertilizer or pool chemicals and to keep pool toys clean, separate storage for yard and pool equipment is best. Cottonwood Landscapes does specialize in outdoor buildings, so get in touch if we can help you with additional storage structures at your home.

    Add Value To Your Home

    There’s no question that adding a Pergolas to your home adds value to your life and your equity. Experts estimate that a custom Pergolas adds anywhere between 5-8% to your property value.
