    Hi Liza,

    Yes that is Wisteria growing up the pergola beams. It will create a lovely shaded area once it has grown along the top of the structure!

    Once the wisteria (Wisteria brachybotrys) grows over the beams and steel rods of this pergola, summer shade is assured. Fortunately, wisteria is hardy and fast-growing and eagerly grows up and over a pergola or similar structure within a few years. The ‘Murasaki Kapitan’ cultivar of wisteria is ideal – its bunches of dangling mauve flowers have an intoxicating perfume.

    2. A slice of life outdoorsIf you love the feeling of being outdoors, but want a sense of enclosure without being fully under cover, then a pizza oven in a courtyard setting provides the ideal outdoor room. This oven is integrated into the surrounding brick walls, creating an entertaining space that is further enhanced by the overhead pergola open to the sky. Vines are allowed to grow on the pergola, making it an intimate, introverted and visually interesting courtyard, and ideal for a summer entertaining area that has no view.

    Later down the track we'd like to build a pizza oven in the 'outdoor room'
