A popular type of pergola in gardens is called a gazebo pergola. This name has stuck due to the fact that these structures usually consist of two parts – a deck and the support for the gazebo. These kinds of pergolas are usually free-standing, which means they can be left in place and look very natural in any landscape. Gazebos do require certain skills to assemble and can be expensive to buy readymade but there are now companies that specialize in making these kinds of gazebos. They can also be easily assembled on a pergola already built.
A pergola can also be used as a decorative feature in gardens. You can opt for either a simple, solid design or one that is more colorful or patterned. Using patterns is a good choice as they will blend into any existing garden theme. Also using a plain color scheme can make a pergola stand out and it is best not to use too many colors. Using one color is best, although if you wish for your pergola to have an unusual shape it is possible to have one that is asymmetrical in shape.
There are a number of different ways to assemble pergolas and choose the method that best suits your own garden. The most popular way is with posts, known as posts, being inserted into the ground. Then the whole structure is then topped off and fixed onto the top of the posts. Pergolas can also be erected straight into the garden. This requires only two posts and a support beam.
Pergolas can be built high up in the trees, which are a good choice if you want a natural feel. The only problem is that they do take a lot of work in order to erect and this could become an issue if you have less than ideal local conditions for installing a pergola. In areas where the ground is muddy or sandy the structure may need to be supported by posts that are inserted at an angle.
Some people prefer the look and feel of pergolas as opposed to the other kind of garden constructions. Some like the way they look when they are not erect and some like the idea of them being fully open during the summer months. There are many choices for people who like to add a pergola to their garden and there are many different kinds and styles of the pergola to choose from. It is a good idea to spend some time looking around before you choose your choice.
