As an extension to the house. This is what is known as a lean-to pergola, and can be in the form of a porch, carport, log store, patio pergola or any sort of walkway found next to a building or wall. The wall serves to support the structure on one of its sides. The patio pergola can, indeed, extend the indoor space by drawing people out into the garden, and the upright posts are ideal for supporting wonderful climbing plants. These ideas are mainly concerned with the type and position of your pergola. For the style aspect, this is really down to personal preference. Styles might include cottage garden, modern and sleek, rustic or oriental. Then, of course, there are the different materials - rough sawn wood, planned wood, rustic poles, bamboo, wrought iron, aluminum, brick pillars, vinyl, and those using a combination of materials. Whichever pergola you choose, make sure it fits in with the look and feel of your overall design. Have fun creating a truly wonderful, relaxing and inviting space.
Pergolas can be categorized into two major types based on its position, the entryway and the walkway pergolas. An entryway pergola might appear like a large arbor. Usually, they are used for generating a fascinating visual transition within the yard. They are more attractive and creative alternatives to the fence gates. If you want to further enhance their looks, you can use climbing plants such as clematis, ivy or roses for decorating them. The basic features of the walkway pergolas are similar to that of their entryway counterparts. However, unlike an entryway pergola, which is generally placed near the door, a walkway pergola is placed along a path within the yard or a sidewalk. There are some who use them for adding drama to their yard. Some, on the other hand, use them for creating functional coverings for pools, gardens or garage walks.
Adding height and interest. Height is desirable, too. A flat garden is restricted in the interest it gives, although height can be achieved through careful placement of trees and plants. A pergola, however, gives a permanent, solid anchor around which to base other design features such as patios, paths, water features and planting. And, of course, the use of climbing plants can be a huge bonus, adding both beauty and fragrance. Pergolas are inviting. We are drawn to them, whether it is to walk through them or relax under their canopy on a warm summer’s day.
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.
