What is the Purpose of a Pergola?

Pergolas have their roots in the days of ancient gardens that dotted the properties of wealthy Romans and Egyptians. They were viewed as a beautiful and elegant way to help keep the sun away. Today, pergolas continue to be a charming path to a more inviting outdoor space. They are an open-air structure with four posts and cross beams or lattices that create the perfect spot for your outdoor events.

Here are the Top 5 benefits of installing a pergola on your property:

Shades of gray: You can have the best of both worlds with a mix of sun and shade under your pergola. They are designed to add shade in varying degrees as the sun changes its position throughout the day. While it is not a total and complete shaded area, it offers a blend of both worlds with the feel of still being outdoors.

A touch of beauty: Pergolas are truly a work of sculptural art in terms of adding shade to your space. They have a unique look and create a whole new style of vibe that will transform your property and up your entertaining game. They come in a variety of materials, colors and styles – from rustic to modern. They also serve as a structure for hanging plants, growing roses, wisteria, honeysuckle and more. Pergolas are not only a beautiful structure on their own, but also a standout framework for additional touches of beauty.

The place to be: Of course, there is no better spot to create an inviting outdoor space than under a pergola. It is truly an outdoor room that can be decorated anyway that works for your family. You can add cozy outdoor furniture, an outdoor kitchen, dining table and chairs or a small garden area.

Worth the money: A new structure, such as a pergola, can add value to your home. If you sell your home, it will be a point to highlight as an outdoor space is sought after by home buyers. Outdoor living spaces continue to be a popular place for families, friends and neighbors to gather, relax, celebrate and make new memories.

Affordable options: Pergolas are a budget-friendly way to upgrade your property and outdoor entertaining. There is such a wide selection, that there is certainly an option that fits your own personal budget. Pergolas are a great way to add an element of character to your backyard.
