Standout Pergolas Meet Standout Siding

Standout Pergolas Meet Standout Siding

As Midwesterners, we wait for the sunshine to rear its head in spring. And when it does, we can’t get enough of it. That is until the burn sets in, then we look for a little protection. Pergolas offer some sunshade, all with the ability to soak up the spring’s warmer days.


Whether you’re grilling in your backyard, hosting a dinner party or simply breathing in the fresh air, there’s really nothing like having an outdoor space to call your own, especially with a pergola pretty enough to make your neighbors’ jealous.


As you sit back and bask in the glory of your pergola, having beautiful home siding and trim only adds to your view. And James Hardie has plenty of siding and trim colors that can highlight your home’s natural surroundings.


Let’s take a closer look at homes with pergolas and views of James Hardie®

siding and trim—it’s the perfect way to spread the sunshine.


Shade in the Suburbs

This neighborhood gem’s brown-stained wood pergola creates a backyard oasis for this single-family home. The Artisan® lap siding in Timber Bark with HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White make for a clean and modern backdrop while enjoying the outdoor area. The shade of the pergola offers the perfect spot for a lounger, or family style table.

Dramatic at Dusk

This sophisticated pergola draws focus to the home’s French doors leading out to the epic backyard. The bold cool-white columns add an elegant touch, and balance the warmer look of the stone flooring. The Artisan lap siding in Boothbay Blue seems to tie the entire look together, playing off the colors in the natural stone.
