My husband was going to lay some pavers in our backyard and build a pergola above them. I was not sure if we needed a permit for this project. We live in the SA city limits, however I didn't think the permit website was that helpful. If anyone has any experience in this area that would be great.

Thanks!

If it's not anchored into the ground, it's not a permanent structure, and no permit is needed.

Might want to check your HOA restrictions before doing any construction...

FYI, you might want to consider sinking those posts into the ground in concrete to prevent injury. Pergolas can be mighty heavy. Just sayin'....
