Here at New Covenant Patios & Outdoors, we want to help you make your outdoor living areas the best they can be, and one way we do that is by designing and building pergolas to go over your patio or deck. Below, we will go over a few of the benefits that pergolas have to offer to help you decide if adding one is the right choice for you.
- Shade – One of the main benefits of adding a pergola to your deck or patio is that this structure will provide some much-needed shade, allowing you to use these living areas in greater comfort.
- Elegance – Pergolas also add a classic elegance to your landscape design, and they can be used to elevate the overall design of your yard.
- Definition and Contrast – Another benefit pergolas offer when it comes to design is that they give your landscape more contrast, visually defining your patio area and setting it apart from the rest of the yard. This definition will make your landscape design stronger and help tie the whole yard together.
- Structure for Climbing Plants – Traditionally, pergolas were used as structures for growing grape vines or climbing flowers, and you can continue this tradition today. Allowing flowers or vines to climb up your pergola will make the whole thing look even more elegant, and doing so will also provide even more shade to keep you cool during the summer.
We hope that this information about pergolas has been helpful. If you are interested in adding one to your own landscape, we encourage you to give our team a call to get started.
