Pergola vs. Patio: What’s the Difference?

It’s easy to get pergolas and patios confused, so here’s how to distinguish them.


noun. Italian, from Latin pergula (shed, vine arbour).

A pergola is traditionally a free-standing structure comprising four support pillars and overhead beams designed to support climbing plants.

Pergolas can be square, rectangle, hexagonal, octagonal, or even round.


noun. Spanish.

Classically, a patio is a roofless courtyard in the centre of a house.

Today, it also refers to any al fresco area – normally paved or decked – adjoining a house that is used as a functional space for entertaining or relaxing.

Patios are perfect for South East Queensland’s subtropical climate and can be either free-standing structures or attachments to your home.

Many Australian patios include balustrades and roofing for safety and weather protection.

Great team to work with, which resulted in a high quality front fence and automatic gate for a rural property - I couldn't be happier!

Hellen Flaherty

QAF recently manufactured and installed fences at my home. From start to finish the job ran smoothly and efficiently. The finished product was beyond my expectations. Karen Kahu is a valued member of this company.

Peter Phillips

Jessica and her team were such a pleasure to deal with. They quoted us quickly, kept us informed as to how production was tracking, and were very communicative about booking in the installation. We absolutely love our new gates, and when we had an issue recently, they sent someone out within 24 hours to help - no questions asked. Amazing service, I will definitely use them again.

Kate Richards

Our Body Corporate needed to replace our timber side fence forming part of a pergola. QAF were very prompt in replying, Kyle came and listened to what we needed, took measurements and David installed last week. Every step of the way was easy and exactly what we needed and what they promised at a very reasonable cost. Excellent service from a very easy to get along with Company. Highly recommended.
