Pergolas, Porticos & Pavilions Construction

Pergola, Portico & Pavilion 1Pergolas, gazebos, and pavilions are the perfect places to enjoy breezy afternoons and sunset dinners outside of your home. A new pavilion, gazebo, or pergola will extend your usable outdoor space, add to your curb appeal, and boost the value of your home. Carroll Landscaping provides our customers with top-notch design, construction, installation, and maintenance.


Pergolas are becoming more and more common in the Maryland area as an accent structure for garden areas or elegant landscaping accent. Pergolas are rectangular or square structures composed of posts and pillars with supporting beams across to form an open lattice structure. We can also mount them over a deck area to create a shady spot to relax. Pergolas create a slightly shady walkway, path to or from your home, or small area to relax. Many pergolas create shady areas through vine and floral growth on the lattices above. Pergolas are a fantastic way to integrate your landscaping into your hardscaping.

Gazebos are traditional and romantic structures that can accent even smaller yards. They are typically octagonal and perfect for a table and chairs, benches, or any other relaxing furniture. They have solid roofs to block out any rain or sunlight during the day. If you have a large property with beautiful landscaping, a gazebo is the perfect spot to enjoy your hard work from. Gazebos are typically built from wood and carefully installed in your yard.


Outdoor pavilions are the perfect place to entertain outdoors in the shade. Unlike gazebos, pavilions can be larger in size and accommodate dinner tables or several pieces of outdoor furniture. Pavilions are the best place to host your outdoor entertaining events without worrying about rain, bright sunlight, or anything else ruining the event.

The Installation Process

The installation process starts with a design meeting to determine the size of the structure, your personal style, any size constraints, and the budget. Our landscape designers will walk through your property to assess how much site work will be needed, the best location for the structure, and how to best integrate it into your existing landscaping and hardscaping. We always take into account the existing layout and elevation of your yard to ensure that a new gazebo or pergola will not lead to any drainage issues in the future. Once the design and planning phase concludes, we will enter the scheduling, permitting and installation stages.

On the scheduled pavilion installation day, our installation crew will show up on time with all of the necessary materials. If your pavilion or gazebo installation is a multi-day project, our workers will always find an appropriate stopping point and thoroughly clean the area before leaving. On the final day of the installation process, our team will ensure that your final structure meets your expectations, that the area is cleaned up, and that your yard is put back together properly. We always leave our clients with a ready-to-use finished product so you can relax under your pergola later that night!
