Pergolas have been used in dwellings for centuries, classically, to add a shaded walkway, to link pavilions or to allow a sitting area which allows the breeze and sun to filter through. This amazing addition to a home will not only add to comfort, it can be an attractive bonus to the resale value of the home. Any open space around the home may be used as an invitation for a pergola. Over the years, pergola structures have adapted to the area so that there is a large variety in designs. While traditional pergolas were intended mainly for beauty and comfort, the current designs place more emphasis on providing protection from the harsh elements of nature such as rain and snow and ultra-violet radiation.
Pergolas can be categorized into two major types based on its position, the entryway and the walkway pergolas. An entryway pergola might appear like a large arbor. Usually, they are used for generating a fascinating visual transition within the yard. They are more attractive and creative alternatives to the fence gates. If you want to further enhance their looks, you can use climbing plants such as clematis, ivy or roses for decorating them. The basic features of the walkway pergolas are similar to that of their entryway counterparts. However, unlike an entryway pergola, which is generally placed near the door, a walkway pergola is placed along a path within the yard or a sidewalk. There are some who use them for adding drama to their yard. Some, on the other hand, use them for creating functional coverings for pools, gardens or garage walks.
The Importance of High Quality Pergola Plans The last thing I would like to focus on is the importance of following high quality and detailed pergola plans. Anyone who experiments with woodworking projects knows how difficult and time consuming DIY projects can be without good blueprints or plans to follow. This is why I highly suggest taking the time to do some research and obtain a good set of plans for your project. Plans with clear step by step instructions accompanied by photos will make a do it yourself pergola project much easier in the long run.
