Accessorize your home garage with a pergola. Pergolas add a focal point to the driveway and home for a striking addition to the space. Many types of home garage pergola are placed just above a doorway and extend slightly outward. They may be placed just above the door itself, or across the entire structure. These normally consist of a brace on either side of the piece along with support beams that hold runners, or long narrow pieces of wood. Open lattice or strips of vinyl or wood are usually placed over top of the runners, with a small space between each strip. Over the pergola, grow perennial creeping vines like bougainvillea or roses for bright bursts of color and a long-lasting pergola vine that grows back each year. Creeping vines like grapevine have foliage that changes their color during each season for a striking display over the garage.
