Having pergola in your patio or garden is a very effective means of adding beauty to these areas. Not only that it enhances the beauty but also add monitory value to the home. The defining feature of a pergola is the support columns which run along either side, typically connecting with a latticed framework above. The sides of a pergola are traditionally left open to create an unfettered view. Plants are trained to grow up the pillars until they reach the framework, at which point they will spread out to cover the top of the pergola, and sometimes they may start to dangle partway down the sides. Pergolas have been used in architecture since at least Ancient Egyptian times. These structures provide a shaded area with plenty of breezes for outdoor relaxation, which can be enjoyable in regions where the weather is very hot.
A pergola can also be used to define an outdoor space, or to create a transition between the interior of a house and the garden. After all, having a pergola often increases the sale value of a home, especially if the pergola is in good condition with a well-established network of vines. Pergolas are great additions to a patio or garden because they can add beauty and function to your outdoor space.
