What Houzz contributors are saying:
Timber pergolasThese can vary significantly in cost depending on the type of timber used. This pergola by COS Design is made with laminated beams and dressed timber battens. Its contemporary design suits the house and garden very well, but more traditional-style timber posts and beams can be used for older houses. PROS: Natural timber can balance man-made materials in the garden, and well-designed timber pergolas like this one work as a sculptural element.CONS: Timber is a heavy material so it needs solid foundations and skilled labour to look this good. It can also require repainting or re-staining on a regular basis.
… Or centre courtEqually functional for adults and kids alike, this backyard in Melbourne makes the most of all available space. The usual backyard turf has been cleverly transformed into a grassed tennis court, and a section of the deck houses the pool.Tennis courts worthy of a grand slam
This modern outdoor patio perfectly transitions into a tennis court with an unimposing louvre pergola and low-profile barbecue area. Such is a place you could while away a summer afternoon in alfresco comfort. Just add a ball boy who fetches beverages on the side.
