Installing a Pergola Gives Your Patio Simplicity and Versatility
The simplicity of the pergola can be deceptive. Descended from Renaissance gardens, they have remained basically the same for centuries.
Sturdy posts are erected. Beams are then raised and mounted between the posts. Rafters are placed at intervals, spanning the space between the beams. This forms a semi-open enclosure.
The amount of shade provided by the pergola is determined by the spacing between the rafters. The closer the intervals, the more shade in the space below. Larger intervals between rafters allow in more sunlight. Installing purlins across the rafters in a lattice pattern creates additional shade.
Pergolas combine elegance and beauty with function and versatility. They enhance and define landscape and patio design and provide a distinctive look to any outdoor space.
Need Help with Pergola Designs?
Because they are not confined by the dimensions of surrounding fixed structures, pergolas offer many improvement possibilities.
Patio pergolas can be freestanding or attached to the house. Erecting support posts outside the patio limits with rafters spanning overhead and beyond makes a pleasing transition from fixed space into green areas.
Walkways between a garage and the house or to a garden area are ideal places for a pergola. Forming a semi-sheltered path, they can support climbing plants that beautify and add shade to open spaces.
A freestanding backyard pergola makes an ideal addition to garden and yard landscaping. As a place to gather with friends or to enjoy a book in the shade, your pergola will become a centerpiece, providing visual definition and beauty.
Let your inspiration lead you. Your professional Maryland pergola builder from Diamond Decks will work with you to create the pergola of your dreams.
What Are the Benefits of Installing a Pergola?
Besides shade, pergolas offer other design benefits.
A pergola is a perfect solution for increasing privacy outdoors. Plantings incorporated with the latticework structure provide a secluded place to enjoy family and friends or to just spend some quiet time alone.
Cover for Undesirable Views
Development, construction, and traffic sometimes create less than desirable views. Strategically designed and constructed pergolas can offer a calming garden scene that covers unwanted sights and mitigates sound.
Additional Green Space
Where green space is limited, or additional garden area is desired, the pergola can provide a place for plantings that climb and trail along the rafters and purlins. A relatively small area can become a green and luxurious garden.
Additional living space always adds value to a home. Outdoor renovations that beautify and increase usable area consistently offer the highest returns for dollars invested in home improvements. The key to added value is quality, and as in all worthwhile endeavors, quality requires professional pergola installation.
