What is a Pergola?
A pergola is a structure supported by three or more posts with decorative beams going across the top. The beams are excellent for creating shade and dispersing the brightness of the sun. Pergolas are often used for growing vines and other plants that can climb and wrap around them, creating a decorative yet natural look. The beams themselves can be ornamental as well and are often sculpted with intricate patterns and designs. Pergolas can be built at any height – in fact, you can build multiple pergolas at different heights to create a tiered effect.
Benefits of Pergolas
Having a pergola offers numerous benefits, some that other outdoor structures may not provide.
- Classic Appearance. Pergolas date back to centuries ago and have always been associated with luxury. Adding a pergola to your yard gives it a unique, aristocratic feel that your neighbors will be envious of.
- Cool. Pergolas provide an element of shade that can keep you cool in the summer months. Misters can also be attached to provide extra cooling functionality.
- Decoration Opportunity. In addition to their natural beauty, pergolas can be used for decorating during the holidays. Hanging Christmas lights and decorations is easy.
- Better Air Quality. If you choose to grow plants around your pergola, it will improve the air quality of the surrounding area.
