Pergola. Wednesday , January 10th , 2018 - 19:13:36 PM
You can either buy your pergola pre-made; have one custom made or purchase a kit and make it yourself. This is where the budget factor may influence your choice. While they are simple, a good craftsman takes pride in his work and you may find that a well-made custom pergola can be pricier than anticipated. But, you should also keep in mind that a custom made unit will almost always be made with quality and from wood that will stand the test of time, giving you lasting beauty for countless seasons of enjoyment.
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 obvious advantage is the conversation factor, as people talk about your pergola and the elegance that it lends to your landscaping. One of the not so obvious advantages if they are done correctly and positioned in the correct manner, are that you can actually use the vines from the pergola to help shade the area that they cover, thereby lowering the overall temperature of the garden area. This is especially true on balmy summer afternoons when the hot sun often causes people to stay inside. A well designed pergola will allow you to once again make use of your garden area for living and entertaining comfortably.
