The design of a pergola depends on the geographical location. Depending on the area, the grade or the direction of the sun, a pergola may be a gazebo, an extension of a building, an open terrace or a veranda that has grapevines criss-crossing a latticed roof. One of the most important considerations when designing a pergola is the roofing structure and shape The roof design on a pergola depends on the availability of direct sunlight as well as the geography and natural features of the region. Although, in earlier times, pergolas were constructed using brick and stone pillars, modern designs employ weather resistant woods such as western red cedar or coast redwood. Pergola roofs may range from simple, flat, traditional roof, elaborately curved roof, pitched roof, gabled roof or a gazebo style roof.
Arbors and pergolas can be designed in many ways, depending on your preferences and needs of your garden or home. Suppose you want to cover the top of a large pergola, the best way is to grow wisteria or grape vines, since they have a tendency to grow horizontally and spread in large areas. Although, it is important to keep in mind that fruit vines may also attract bees and other insects. So, if you want to avoid pests you shouldn’t choose pergola deck design incorporating flowers of fruits.
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.
