Pergolas are the perfect addition to any back garden. A pergola can provide shade from the sun, cover your outdoor entertaining space, and add unique style to your garden. This project requires some basic tools and carpentry skills but it isn’t difficult or challenging. Once completed, you’ll have a beautiful place of your very own!

You may purchase pre-made pergolas online or in home improvement stores, but they can be expensive, especially if you want one that is large enough for a patio set. You could also hire a contractor or carpenter who will charge by the hour or price per square foot which means they’ll only be concerned with speed and efficiency, not quality. Do it yourself kits can be purchased online or at home improvement stores but will still cost £500-700 depending on the size of the kit.

If you want a pergola that is sturdy, large enough to accommodate a patio set and looks great, you’re going to have to build it yourself. Pergolas are structures built across a raised supporting beam for outdoor shade or decoration, often placed over an entranceway. They are commonly used nowadays in back gardens for creating shaded areas from the sun. Pergolas are an Old World concept that has been around for centuries. Originally used in Europe, pergolas are now becoming more popular in the United States.

Pergolas are structures supported by columns or posts connected to beams with a vine growing up them or attached across them. They range from simple homemade versions to ornate structures made of wood, metal and even concrete – all designed for aesthetic purposes rather than structural ones. Many gardeners will install a pergola over their garden’s patio so they can relax and enjoy time outdoors without getting too much sun exposure, and also add some decorative flair to their outdoor space while achieving this goal at the same time.

What are the main benefits of pergolas?

Pergolas are perfect for both commercial and residential use. Whether you have a garden, patio or yard, pergolas can be constructed to fit your needs. Outdoor kitchens under pergolas are all the rage now since they expand outdoor living spaces into functional areas. Commercial uses of pergolas are endless- from being used as market stalls in shopping malls to creating an opening outside high-end restaurants where cafe tables are set up for patrons on nice days. Pergola kits make it easy to build your own garden retreat too, so they are incredibly versatile and it’s no wonder why so many people keep buying pergola kits to create unique spaces outside, allowing for alfresco dining, entertaining and relaxing!
