If you are looking for a way to enhance the natural beauty of your garden, installing a pergola could be one of your options.
What is a pergola?
A pergola is a structure that is usually found in a garden. It can be attached to the house, freestanding or a part of a decking kit. It can be made of timber that usually comes in a rectangular shape but it can also be hexagonal, square, circular and even octagonal. Pergolas can have a roof or they can provide shade. The pergola has support columns that stand along either side, united with a latticed framework on the top (refer to the image above).
What are the uses of a pergola?
The main purpose of pergolas is to support climbing vines. Since they have support columns with angled oak beams above, the vines can grow up and around the pergola. Some contemporary designs have roofs which can provide a cosy haven or shelter from the sun. They usually have open sides that allow fresh air to circulate.
In addition, pergolas can serve as an entertainment or barbecue area. A pergola can also add value to a home. It can make the landscape of the outdoor space, the garden or even the whole house more appealing, which can eventually attract more home buyers.
