Our Story

The birth of nakedTREEpergola comes from a long line of experience and passion for the art and craft of timber framing shared by all of us at Notched. Jardin Gleason founded Notched in 2008 as EH Pergolas, a subsidiary of Enhanced Homes Construction, LLC, and was branded as Notched in 2017. Based out of Salt Lake City, Utah Notched has refined the process of designing and furnishing quality timber frame kits, from pergolas, arbors and gazebos to barns and custom pavilions. 

Over the past several years there has been a huge increase in demand for quality timber structures, not only for large custom barns and mountain homes, but for suburban back yards all across the nation. Although the demand has increased, with more people appreciating the quality of real timber products, the cost of custom timber frame shade structures has become far out of reach for the average backyard project.

With our passion toward the timber frame legacy, we developed the line of nakedTREEpergola products to keep the legacy of timber frame structures growing.  Blending traditional technique with modern design tools and technology, we offer a solution to provide simple, fast and affordable quality timber frame shade structures to everyone across the nation.

    Notched installed our pergola about two year ago and we have absolutely loved it. They were wonderful to work with from planning and personalization to implementation and installation. The products they use are exceptional quality. We were shocked at just how large and substantial the timbers are. They look anything but chintzy. We have received lots of compliments and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

    Wow! Jardin and his crew really take care of customers. Early this summer they installed two pergolas in our back yard. They were superb to work with from the beginning design through the final paint touch-up. They were honest. They were polite and professional. They always showed up when they said they would and if their plans changed they contacted me to let me know. The finished project is amazingly beautiful. It is top quality. We looked at many pergolas before deciding to go with Notched and we are glad we did. No regrets. I waited a few months to post this review to evaluate the white paint job and so far it is holding up well. I can recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking to install a pergola. Thanks Notched!

    We could not be happier with the results from Notched. Jardin and his team are detailed, professional and prompt. Our pergola crafted by Notched for our outdoor kitchen turned out amazing!

    We ordered our Pergola during their busy season so there was a considerable wait for installation. It was definitely worth the wait! Notched is a professional company that does beautiful custom work. I would refer them to anyone that is looking for a quality outdoor living space. We couldn’t be happier!!

    Notched is top notch! The hammock hut (a patio sized pavilion/pergola that is also perfect for hanging hammocks and hammock chairs) they built for us is simply amazing! Incredible craftsmanship, detail and quality. The owners really take pride in their work and they have a streamlined installation process (it went up really fast and I didn't have to do the work). We've become professional hammockers...and we didn't even need to take lessons ;) If you want to lower your blood pressure a few points and have a nice place to chill with your family, get a hammock hut from Notched! You'll love it!

    We had a great experience working with Jeff and Caroline at Notched. We had a bid from another competitor but weren’t really thrilled with their design suggestions for our home. We decided to get a second bid from Notched, and not only did Jeff come up with a much better design, they saved us thousands from original bid. Caroline helped us work patiently through our difficult HOA approval process which was overly complicated..The installation crew were great and attentive to every detail. We highly recommend Notched if you want to transform your outdoor living space.
