What is the Difference Between an Arbor and a Pergola?

Arbor and pergola are not the same kinds of structures. An arbor is used to shade plants or fruit trees from harsh sunlight. A pergola is a type of arbor that can be found on the grounds of a farm or garden.

Both are similar in the sense that they are both arched, but an arbor has a structure and framework while a pergola does not. Arbor is also shorter than a pergola. A pergola could be considered a type of pavilion, so that is why they share some things in common.
