Looking to enhance your outdoor living space? Installing a pergola is your best bet at extending your home functionality and, at the same time, its curb appeal. A pergola can provide you with numerous benefits to your backyard. As a sheltered place, you use it for family or friend gatherings, lunches, and dinners, or simply transform it into an entertainment zone. So, here is how a pergola can enhance your outdoor living space;

Enhancing Your Outdoors

Sunshine wearing you down, pergolas can easily make up for that. They are a great option for a shaded break; however, they come handier than that. With summer being notorious for monsoons, any day it can be hurling rain at you. But with a pergola installed, you won’t need to worry about rain ruining your relaxing time outdoors. As a bonus, a pergola can also come with a superb drainage system, which removes any water build-up. 

It’s understood that outdoor spaces have an obvious lack of privacy. However, a pergola can change that. If you enjoy soaking in a hot tub and don’t want your pesky neighbors peeking in, then a pergola with screens can be installed around it, enhancing your time outdoors. Moreover, pergolas are also great at adding more shade.

Since you don’t require planning permission to install pergola. This makes it a great alternative for any expansion plans you have for your own home. This can also work as additional hosting space. This is all thanks to their ability to be an excellent canvas for your ideas and inspirations. Allowing you to be creative and experiment with some LEDs, or faux plants for style and aesthetic.

What You Need to Keep in Mind

As with any structure, pergolas work best with solid ground, making sure that it is flat and level. An uneven surface will affect not only your pergola but also the drainage system around it. If you are deciding on a steel or concrete pergola, then you have much to worry about in terms of maintenance. However, if you have decided on a wooden pergola, know that this will require you to upkeep maintenance, staining, sealing, and painting. 

Hiring additional help is recommended when handling your own pergola installation. Since most parts are solid and heavy, we suggest 2-3 people working together to ensure safety and injury-free installation. Furthermore, it may also take a few hours, together with easy-to-follow instructions. At the same time, you can always opt-out of hiring a professional handling service—such as MSG Post Hole Digging.
