If you do not want to use wood to build your unit, you can also purchase aluminum, steel and wrought iron kits. Metal pergola design plans offer weather proof structures that require very little maintenance and upkeep. This material can be just as beautiful and decorative in your garden as a wooden structure, but with fewer repairs. Browse our pergola deck picture gallery at structures made of different materials to determine which would look best in your exterior design. If you are looking for a DIY simple pergola construction project, wood is the better choice. A great addition to any outdoor arbor is to place ample seating under the unit. This can be in the form of lounge chairs, outdoor couches, or armchairs.

The best deck design trends for DIY plans are building these structures out of wood. This is the best material to use for an outdoor pergola attached to a house or free standing because wood is inexpensive. In addition to being cheap, wood pergolas are environmentally friendly due to the organic material. They also add a beautiful decorative touch with a vintage look to your exterior design. Timber wood is one of the best types to use when building a structure like this because it comes in many different sizes and is pretty cheap.

While a rounded arbor can be a unique and beautiful addition to your outdoor garden d├ęcor, the easiest shapes to build are rectangles or square. To get ideas for your design you can search through our free photos of pergolas for inspiration. Some great outdoor arbor ideas include keeping the sides of the structure open and growing plants on top of the terrace for shade. While you do not have to include plants or vines in your design plan, they can act as great shade covers from the hot sun during the summer months. A free standing structure with flowers overhead can be a great addition to any garden. Looking through gazebo designs online will show how different vines and flowers can be used to decorate the unit.
