Carolina Vinyl Pergolas A long-lasting, free-standing pergola
Are you wanting to create a unique, refreshing, and trendy environment for enjoying your outdoors and hosting family and friends? The Carolina is a cost-effective Carolina Free Standing Pergola that merges traditional and modern elements to create a refreshing environment in your out-of-doors.
Because it’s a free standing pergola, the slatted top provides partial shade that can be optionally extended with retractable shade cover. The beams and columns provide ample space for hanging flowers, decorative curtains, string lights, and other decorations. Because it’s vinyl, the pergola won’t fade or change color over time. This is a truly long-term investment that adds pleasure to your yard, pool, or patio area.
The Carolina can be purchased as either a free-standing pergola or an attached pergola. The free-standing pergola is recommended for most applications, as it’s easier to build and install. For a truly unique flair, you can also attach one side of the pergola to your home, restaurant, or any other building to give it an appearance that’s unified with its surroundings.
Pergolas provide partial shade, which is the intentional design of this light, airy structure. For even more flexibility, you can add a retractable shade cover to your pergola, which easily slides out when the sun is hot, and retracts into a small bunch on the end when not in use. This allows a pergola to act as a pavilion-type structure when needed.

We can not say enough about the craftsmanship and customer service of Lancaster County Backyard. We were hosting a party and needed a pergola to keep our guest out of the direct sun of our backyard.
The party was fast approaching and we were losing hope that we would find a quality product to meet our needs, when we found LCB.
Kevin and his team were fantastic, it was noticeable from our first discussion that LCB are expert craftsmen.and had unsurpassed knowledge which could meet our build needs.
Not only where they able to meet our deadline, Kevin and his team delivered a beautiful white wood pergola which is the envy of our neighbors. We would highly recommend the quality, service and craftsmanship of LCB.

After a summer of shopping for a pavilion with many disappointments we thought we would not get our pavilion that is until I had a phone conversation with Kevin. After this conversation with him suddenly I realized that he was not only interested in selling his product, but he wanted to be sure his customer would be happy. In my opinion he would rather not get the sale if his customer would not be happy. He shared information no other companies provided.
After careful consideration of all the data we decided go with Lancaster County Backyard (Pequea Shed). Kevin and the crew arrived early Wednesday morning and worked all day to complete the project by around 4:30PM. The end result was absolutely perfect. Total perfection at it’s best!. Kevin and the crew was a real pleasure to work with. You can really tell when someone loves what they do. What I love best is that they love the Lord. I got that feeling with the very first phone call. It’s a pleasure to know you. God Bless !!!!

Can I place a pergola or pavilion on bare ground?
To place a pergola/pavilion on bare ground, you should first install concrete piers that mound just a bit above the surface of the ground. (for concrete pier details, see Answer to Q. Can I mount it on my paver patio?)
Can I mount a pergola or pavilion on my deck?
If you’re mounting to an existing wood deck, a good and proper mounting method is to drop the posts down through the deck and secure them to the joists. The recommended method is to take the wooden portion of the post down through the deck. (Trim pieces for vinyl make this a bit simpler.)
Can I mount a pergola or pavilion to my paver patio?
We do not recommend fastening to pavers. They do not provide structural stability and are not a secure anchoring method. The recommended method is to install concrete piers 18” in diameter and 36” deep. Remove a section of pavers approximately 24” in diameter. Then dig down 36”. Fill with concrete to approximately one to two inches below the bottom of pavers. After the pergola or pavilion is installed, the pavers can be cut to fit and replaced around the columns.
