Pergolas are a great solution for areas in your garden that need shade. They are also great for dividing up an outdoor space. So if you are in need of some shade and also a few ideas on how to build a pergola, I’ve got them for you right here. No need to look any further.
Pergolas can offer some great privacy, but they’re not always the best for shade.The clear pergola roof still blocks some of the sun (about 10%) so the patio still feels cooler than the non-covered area. And being able to see the sky through the roof is so beautiful.
A pergola is a garden feature forming a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area of vertical posts or pillars that usually support cross-beams and a sturdy open latice, often upon which woody vines are trained. As a type of gazebo, it may also be an extension of a building or serve as protection for an open terrace or a link between pavilions.
