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. For those of you that might not be completely familiar with what a pergola is, we can describe it 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.
Choosing the correct lighting is very vital for your patio design as it gives a lively feel to the area during the night. Proper lights are not just meant to beautify your patio design, but it also ensures your safety when you walk around the patio at night. There are various patio lighting options as well to be chosen; some of the common ones are torches, lights hanging from the trees or ceilings etc. Torches bring in a natural feel to the ambiance, while the lights used with gazebos or covers give a romantic feel to it. Make sure to use proper lighting in the strategic areas such as, steps, walkways and level changes for safety.
Pergolas are designed in such a way that it leads from one area or feature to another. The first and foremost thing before adding a pergola in your garden is to measure its width and height, and also the proper thickness for the pillars or timber or whatever the material you chose for the pillars. The common material used to build pergolas include: pressure treated softwood or hardwood and metal (that must be treated with some rust proofing agent). You can also use non ferrous metals to prevent rust problem.
