I have an awning pergola. It is quite rain proof and it rains hard in Oklahoma. It is also very shady which is important in such strong sun. The canvas gets lichen and mildew on it. For the person worried about birds-birds are nothing compared to the lichens. I have had it professionally cleaned and have cleaned it myself. This is a losing battle though. And it is dangerous work as height is involved. Also it can be punctured by an errant branch in a windstorm. Somewhat impractical material but so charming with the greek key pattern trim. The awning people say-just spend several thousand $ on a new one every few years.... So far I have refused to do this -12 years on-but the time will come. Don't use this material unless you want to keep spending on it. But it is pretty.

We will be staining the deck same color as fence. Landscaping, furniture and decor is not complete. But we are very pleased with the look so far.
