Creating a journey through the garden. It is really important to create an element of surprise in a garden, leading the eye from one feature to another, whether that feature is another structure, a plant, border, statue or pond. It gives the feeling of the garden being an exciting place to be, with something new to experience just around the corner. A pergola is an excellent way to divide a garden in to sections, and can be used with trellising to great effect. This type of pergola is often called a walkway, because we walk under it rather than sitting under it.
Other than deciding on the pergola type, you must consider a few other factors while drafting pergola plans. Read through the pointers below to know about those factors: Size You will first need to find out how much area of the yard you can dedicate to a pergola. The price of a pergola is directly proportional to its size. This means, your budget is one of the primary factors to consider while deciding on the size of the pergola. Shade: Based on your preferences, you can pick pergola designs that either come with a little shade or a lot of it. The shading can be increased later using vining vegetation. A major advantage of using vining plants as shade is that they would offer more shade during summer and less during winter.
Combining wood with decorative concrete columns If you have a specific design idea in mind or a wooden pergola doesn’t suit your budget, you can think about building a vinyl or aluminum pergola. These pergola are cost-effective and easy to install, but lack the aesthetic appeal of wooden pergola. However, with some creative design ideas, you can not only save up on money but also get a pergola that looks truly amazing. Building a pergola by combining wood and concrete decorative columns is a great way of creating an appealing outdoor structure. You can take the assistance of a deck designer for some design options and choose something that goes well with your landscape. The choice of decorative columns plays an important role in determining the overall look of the pergola, therefore, it’s important that you specifically focus on choosing the right columns. Larger columns will give your pergola a spacious, stately look, but it’s important to make sure they are proportional to the size of pergola and don’t obscure the other design elements. Experts recommend keeping the size between twelve to eighteen inches in diameter.
The Importance of High Quality Pergola Plans The last thing I would like to focus on is the importance of following high quality and detailed pergola plans. Anyone who experiments with woodworking projects knows how difficult and time consuming DIY projects can be without good blueprints or plans to follow. This is why I highly suggest taking the time to do some research and obtain a good set of plans for your project. Plans with clear step by step instructions accompanied by photos will make a do it yourself pergola project much easier in the long run.
