Water tight top on the pergola? - Is that wooden top water tight? If so, you count on very tight seams, or is there a sealant in between? Thanks, Edgar

The pergola is great - clean and simple - I have a side alley which gets very damp. If I put up a similar pergola would this alleviate the problem a bit?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Side alleyways can create useful outdoor rooms. In houses blessed with a wider side alleyway, there is more scope to create a garden with uses more than just decorative. But they can still have the same problems that side yards have, with diminished light levels and dry soils.The clever design of this alleyway draws us to the focal point of the pergola-covered seating area, while the lush evergreen planting almost intensifies the narrow space. Once again the design is clean and simple.
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 New Uses for Your Side Yard
Spot for a top chef. There are so many good things to say about this side garden design, but the most important one is, "Please invite me over for a meal!" From the modern arbor's slender profile to the mixed flooring of concrete and gravel, this space makes use of every inch, top to bottom.The L-shaped banquette to the right provides seating for lots of people and doubles as a low wall that divides the courtyard from the dining area. The bar/cooking area faces the party (a nice way to keep the chef engaged with guests). I love the thoughtful addition of twin pendant lights suspended from the arbor to illuminate the food-prep area and the large mirror at the back, hung on the outside wall to reflect light and greenery into the space.Now, what's for dinner?
This outdoor space uses plantings and hardscaping to lead the eye toward focal points. Notice that the entire path is narrowing your focus forward and down the path.Plant: Evergreens. Rain is great for new plants, and fall is a prime time for planting trees and bushes.
