Screen & Pergolas
In an urban setting like Calgary, our lots can make us feel like we know too much about our neighbors. Trees are the preferred screen, but they take up room and are not always possible depending on site conditions. Screens are a great option. Not only are they attractive features, but they can block a less than desirable view, and provide privacy. There are many options for materials.
Pergolas provide a canopy over a sitting area either attached to the house or out in the garden. They enhance the sense of privacy even though they are open to the elements. They can be a perfect fit for outdoor kitchens. Pergolas also provide the bones for additional screening using retractable blinds if more shade or privacy is required.
