Summer is quickly approaching, and sooner than later, you’ll be looking for ways to enjoy the great outdoors. You may like your outdoor deck or patio now but are looking for ways to make it better for the summer months. Adding a pergola is a great way to improve your outdoor living space. Learn why so many homeowners are choosing to add a pergola to their outdoor deck and patio.

They Protect You

Pergolas offer great UV protection. They give you a shaded area where you can enjoy your patio or deck without having to worry about sunburn. Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy the outdoors regardless of how bright the sun is? A basic pergola will offer some protection from the sun, but a pergola that utilizes climbing flowers for its roof will provide more than enough protection from harmful UV rays.


Helps Define a Space

Pergolas are a great way to define spaces without making the space feel smaller or more confined. Use a pergola to create an entertainment lounge, an outdoor kitchen, or a dining room. You can further define your outdoor living space by adding floorings, such as brick, concrete pavers, or even a deck. 


They Require Minimal Maintenance

Pergolas made out of vinyl are very durable. Vinyl pergolas don’t splinter, chip, peel, rot, fade, warp, or become discolored. Vinyl pergolas aren’t susceptible to termites like wooden pergolas are. Because of the durability of vinyl pergolas, they require minimal maintenance. You don’t even need to worry about annual staining.


They Help Plants Thrive

Not only do pergolas protect humans, but they also protect plants. The pergolas offer the perfect environment for plants to grow and thrive. Climbing flowers, vines, and ivy will weave into the beams and receive more than enough nutrients and sunlight to grow. Not only will your plants thrive, but your entire property will thrive too because the flower-covered pergola will provide a beautiful visual link between your home and your garden. 


They’re Affordable 

If you want to upgrade your outdoor living space without spending a lot of money, adding a pergola might be the perfect solution. Pergolas are inexpensive and easy to build, but they make a big impact on your outdoor living space. Although some pergola styles will cost more than others, a Maryland deck builder can always build a pergola that fits your budget.
