Transform Your Outdoor Oasis with a Custom Pergola – Get Started Today!
Who builds custom pergolas near me? Warner’s Outdoor Solutions is Minnesota’s go-to pergola company.
Pergolas are landscaping features that offer partial shade over patios, walkways, sitting areas, and gardens. Unlike an awning, which offers complete coverage, the pergola is typically slatted to allow partial shade throughout the day, as the earth rotates through its cycles. Pergolas are a popular hardscaping feature in Minnesota, not only for their protection from the sun in summer but also because they add character.
Warner’s Outdoor Solutions has been the pergola builder of choice for Minneapolis and Twin Cities’ residents since the 1990s.
