This siding is pre-primed radiata pine. It is holding up quite nicely. Best, Joanne

What are the dimensions, material, and cost of the pergola?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Precision, strength and agility are necessary in the Olympic sports of trampoline and synchronized diving. Let the kids flip and jump on a subground trampoline in the backyard like this one, and they could be well on their way to activity-filled summer days under the sun — and maybe to the 2024 Summer Olympics.
Plant sod or spread grass seed as soon as possible after finishing your prep work. The longer your unplanted soil is bare, the quicker weeds will once again stake their claim.Special considerations:Every geographic area has its soil quirks — too much rock, sandy soil, clay soil etc. Get to know yours so you can better address your gardening issues.Don't skimp on soil preparation when planning for a new lawn — although you won't see the specific materials in the end, a healthy lawn will be your reward.Always use sod or grass seed that is recommended for your area and your site.More: 5 Great Grasses for a New LawnGetting Along With Less LawnThe Case for Losing the Traditional Lawn

Improved quality of life, however, is about way more than the money you save. All those home maintenance tasks, like cleaning and scrubbing and mowing and weeding, take far less time to accomplish in a smaller home, leaving you more time to do the things you really love.

A trellis could be designed to be free standing on posts the full, or partial, length of the south side (imagine this trellis pulled away from the house, free standing). In other words, the trellis does not have to have a vertical back, but could be above head only.
