Gazebos are often put up in gardens so that people can sit in them to enjoy the view.A Pergola:1)an archway in a garden or park consisting of a framework covered with trained climbing or trailing plants.2)an outdoor structure consisting of columns that support a roofing grid of beams and rafters. 3)a garden feature forming a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area of vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross-beams and a sturdy open lattice, often upon which woody vines are trained. The origin of the word is the Late Latin pergula, referring to a projecting eave.
The three biggest differences between gazebos and pergolas are in their visual structures. Gazebos are typically round or octagonal, while pergolas are square or rectangular. Gazebos have a roof, while pergolas have cross beams, but no roof. ... If it is to accent a deck or patio, then a pergola would be the way to go.
