Pergolas are an attractive and very functional addition to any home or garden area, are well made and will look great year after year, giving you a showcase place for your climbing plants so that you can be proud to have everyone see them.
The beauty and clean lines that the pergola imparts to your home or garden are just one of the many sides of this unique structure that has seen a surge in popularity lately. If you are not familiar with what a pergola is it can be described as a garden structure that will give you a shaded passageway or walkway under a covering of pillars that support a variety of cross beams. The pergola also contains some lattice work where your vines climb and are thus trained.
A pergola can be thought of as a type of gazebo which is mainly for plants. And many times, you will find a pergola used as a building extension. For this application, it is often designed as a form of protection over a terrace or other open area or simply used as a way to link the space between a few buildings or pavilions.
The main advantage of pergolas is the center of conversation factor; many people will talk of your pergola and how beautiful it looks on your landscape. One of the not so obvious advantages if they are done correctly and positioned in the correct manner, are that you can use the vines from the pergola to help shade the area that they cover. This lowers the overall temperature of the garden area. This is particularly the case on balmy summer afternoons when the hot sun often causes people to stay inside. A well-designed pergola will allow you to make use of your garden area for living and entertaining comfortably.
The pergola can be designed in a traditional manner, or you can get a little creative and make it fit your specific needs and the design of your particular garden. You are truly only limited here by your creativity and your wallet, although most people tend to opt for the more traditional styling so that they do not detract from either the beauty of the garden or the subtle charm of the pergola.
You can either buy your pergola pre-made; have one custom made or purchase a kit and make it yourself.
