I like this open layout. Like the pergola over the table, grill, and bar. Don't like the plastic on top and wouldn't do ceiling fans or lanterns. White Christmas lights would be prettier Architectural Landscape Design
Backyard Ideas / deck [how lovely. -ab] Our current overhang isn't slanted like this one and is made of solid wood material. Wondering if the raised slant would feel better and if the lighter material would offer shade but let light in.
