Pergolas and arbors offer several similar features, but they also have very different purposes and styles. While a pergola is often used as a patio roof, arbors are considered garden accents. Of course, both are designed to house climbing plants and create an open garden space, whether on the patio or further out in your backyard. Much like arbors, some pergolas are used to create covered walkways, shrouded with flowering plants and vines.
