We provide free quotes with no obligation for the supply and installation of pergolas.
Pergolas are typically made from uprights with horizontal crossbeams and laterals above, forming a semi-open-topped canopy over a social area or walkway.
Pergolas are constructed in a way that encourages the addition of beautiful foliage such as flowering climbers to soften the harsh, straight lines of its struscture. Despite their simplicity, pergolas can look like very impressive structures.
They are typically constructed with metal or wood, and can be designed in a range of sizes, styles and shapes - both with and without canopies for extra protection. Here are some fantastic examples of pergolas in gardens for ideas.
Generally speaking, metal-framed pergolas are best suited to modern, more minimal gardens. Timber framed pergolas are more traditional in style and appearance which can blend nicely into both modern and more old-school style gardens.
Pergola are often added to a garden as much for their appearance as their funcionality. Either way, they serve both purposes; decorative and practical as and when needed. Freestanding pergolas, located in a garden isolated from other structures including the house, are popular when the direction of the sun peaks there.
But in recent times, we have noticed a tendency to, wherever possible, adjoin a pergola to an elevation of the house of other building in the garden. Doing this immediately outside a house's exit (e.g. patio doors) is an effective way to extend the living space of a home.
