Pergola with Angled Design. When you build a pergola, consider positioning it at an angle for added interest. Although it occupies a flagstone patio with a square outline, this pergola was deliberately designed as a corner structure. The clipped front corner creates a wide diagonal entry that offers access to both the adjacent house and a terraced landscape nearby.
Quiet Corner Under the protection of a pergola, the Langes added a second small pond and waterfall. Its central location near several garden rooms means they can enjoy the sound of the waterfall from more than one seating area.

This is our corner pergola we built to make a solid and permanent patio swing out out of. We had lots of trouble with porch wings blowing off the patio so we made a permanent fix! :)
