Adding a few of 2019's trendiest garden patio ideas is a great way to liven up your backyard just in time for spring. These changes don't have to be major, simply freshening up flower beds with bright blooms or accenting your outdoor furniture with beautiful new throw pillows can have a major impact on your space. If you are willing to spend a little bit of money, investing in pergola kits for your patio areas makes a huge design impact and can actually be quite functional as well. These lovely architectural elements add shade and a foundation to grow beautiful climbing vines such as jasmine and honeysuckle like these homeowners.
Our company has been in the landscape design business for many years, but we have never seen the amount of interest in an outdoor pergola addition as we have over the past year. Customers have been contacting us back to back asking if we can add one of our pergola designs to their backyard landscape. I like to think that most of this is because of our impeccable work ethic and gorgeous final product, but I would venture to guess that the newfound interest in this design is because of both their beauty and functionality. These pergola pictures that show our latest finished job show how this unit provides great style to any backyard entertaining space as well as makes it more functional due to the addition of a shaded area to shield you and your guests from the elements.
A patio pergola, are a great solution, if you’re looking to trick the sun and add the necessary touch of shade in your outdoor “room.” As outdoor living has been a huge trend in the past few years, more and more homeowners are embracing the idea of upgrading their front or back yard, in order to extend the time, they spend outdoors despite the weather changes. Pergola ideas, became an often request from clients willing to improve or divide their garden, such as the one shown in the picture. This beautiful villa, seemed almost unfinished without this combination of rafters, beams and slightly decorated posts. We chose a white color to match the sills and to help it stand out from the brick walls. Pergola designs can increase a home’s value, create the right place to relax in, or even help to provide a lush, more dense effect with climbing plants, as their structure is ideal for them to grow.
My husband just finished building this cedar pergola by himself and I couldn't be more proud of the finished piece -- I think it looks fantastic! We have been trying to figure out a way to get more use of our large outdoor entertaining area, because we tend to avoid going outside on super hot sunny days or anytime there is a chance of rain. We wanted an area for dining and lounging around that was a bit more versatile and did not depend so much on the weather. Thats when we started looking around at pergola plans that could be built by yourself and would provide a decorative shaded area outside. We looked at a lot of pergola designs before we settled on this one -- some were very traditional and had a lot of detailing while others were very simple and modern looking.
The look of a pergola attached to house is without a doubt a stunning one. It helps to extend livable space while at the same time creating a connection between the indoors and outdoors. Pergola designs are known to create a sitting area or shaded walkway by supporting a lattice on posts and heavy beams. The purpose of a pergola is to create a pleasant place to sit or walk. It helps people to enjoy the garden while enjoying some shade from the sun. The benefits of installing a wooden pergola is the fact that it will be less costly. It’s also possible to buy pergola kits made from wood. Before purchasing one, ensure the dimensions fit the area you have in mind.
I love enhancing an outdoor patio with cool pergola designs that provide both beauty and functionality to the space. Having a pergola on deck is a great way to provide both shade and protection from the elements (rain, snow, wind), if you like to enjoy your outdoor living areas rain or shine. They can be covered with wood, fabric or greenery to provide a more solid roof or they can be left open as we did at this home, to let more sun shine through. If you are thinking about adding a pergola to your patio, I would recommend surveying your patio furniture and decorative items that you want covered and then scale the unit accordingly. These features are fantastic, but if not designed properly, can look awkward with your other decorative elements.
