Having Tuscan pergola in your yard adds a very Tuscan feel to the outdoors. Tuscan pergola is a garden structures that stand alone or extend from a building or a garden. Use attractive columns to build the Tuscan pergola. Narrowing the shaft and elevating the base would make the Tuscan pergola look taller and more open, giving it a more modern look. The simple style of Tuscan posts allows arched and straight gussets to blend with the pergola without making it look too heavy.
