Installing a pergola is a perfect way to keep your patio shaded but still leave it airy and open. That said, here are the top 5 best places in your property to install a pergola.
If you have a wide and empty lawn space which you’d like to give more functions to, a pergola is a great outdoor addition which can transform that wide open space into an outdoor room. Throw in some cozy but sturdy patio furniture and you’ve got a spot to relax in once in a while.
Do you have areas in your property which gets too much sun in the early morning or late afternoon? Reclaim that spot by installing a pergola. The structure will act as a heat and sunlight barrier, giving the spot ample shade. On the contrary, avoid installing a pergola in areas which are already in shade or needs sunlight as a pergola may make these spaces look gloomier.
