Pergolas and Arbors

Dallas TX Pergola Arbor Austin Tx
Shade structures such as pergolas and arbors are essential to enjoying outdoor patios, decks, and porches in Texas. The experts at Designed Outdoor Living can design, build, and install a variety of unique pergolas, arbors, awnings, and other shade structures using materials such as wood (western cedar, Douglas fir, redwood), metal, stone, concrete, brick, and stucco. These materials offer structural integrity as well as architectural and visual interest.


Owner Thomas Burkhardt has pioneered a concept called Directional Shade Structures, which means his team can build a custom pergola, arbor, or other shade structure outside of the vicinity of the actual shade requirement. Like trees, these structures shade a different area depending on the time of day.


Whatever your needs, you can trust the professionals at Designed Outdoor Living to design and install shade solutions to keep your outdoor living areas comfortable, cool—and stylish!
