While many kits end up looking cheap and flimsy, this pergola looks absolutely awesome - beautiful and sturdy, with lots of architectural details. We added a lattice to the "back" side, facing our neighbors yard, and hung a round piece of stained glass on it - and it''s wonderful. We plan to hang cu…Read MoreRita B.

Me + 2 guy friends were able to assemble this pergola in 3 to 4 hours and it looks great. The only funny part is that several pieces come in 2 parts instead of one, I''m guessing it is so that it would all fit the standard boxes.
Looks great. Very happy.Read MoreAmy L.
I purchased this pergola from ATG about a month ago. It actually arrived a little ahead of schedule, I was kept up to date by email between the time I ordered and the time it arrived. It comes in two fairly large but manageable boxes. Both boxes were packed and skidded well and arrived with no damage.Read Morerandy m.
Over all I''d say the product was excellent! Very easy to put together. There are, however, Three things that could be improved upon. 1.)

Since 1968 Backyard Leisure has designed and manufactured quality products for several diverse industries.
Beginning with Politron, Inc. based in Pittsburg, KS, they manufactured metal and plastic products for agriculture including livestock gates, watering and feeding products. The Politron division was sold in 2009 so they could focus on their core business of quality wooden backyard products.
Leisure Time Products designs and manufactures wooden playsets for residential applications. They cut the wood, form the plastics, and put it all together into a Ready to Assemble ("RTA") kit that is durable and lasts for years. They also make their own picnic tables, using their metal, plastic and wood manufacturing capabilities.
In 2007, they merged with Backyard Adventures from Amarillo, TX. These folks also had a great deal of success making RTA playsets and selling them through retailers such as BJs Clubs. They also had a fantastic line of "custom" playsets where the customer could build their own playset using modular components. These are sold through a dealer network across the country and are still the leading brand of specialty playsets available.
The new company resulting from Backyard Adventures and Leisure Time Products merging is Backyard Discovery. They sell more playsets than any other manufacturer in the country. Their full-featured sets range in price from $299 to over $20,000, yet each one offers a full range of play stations including swings, slides, and climbing walls plus much, much more! All their sets are designed with the utmost safety in mind, allowing you and your child to get years of enjoyment out of the playset with the confidence they're getting plenty of exercise, fresh air, and developing their imagination! At Backyard Leisure, your quality playtime is their goal.
