Ivona Gita. Patio & Pergola. March 22nd , 2017.
Over recent years pergolas have become more popular as ornamental additions to the home. As they are free standing ornamental structures with covered roofs supported by 4 column pillars you can use them for shade from the summer heat, sleeping quarters, study area, entertaining guests. Most pergolas are constructed in spacious back gardens. Many pergolas are attached to the outside of the home. Some pergolas can be marquee sized when they are located in mansions.
Here's what to think about: overall size of the yard; how do you use the yard; contour of the landscape; what functions need to be accommodated on the deck or patio; will you hang out just with the family, or will you entertain often; which other backyard features will be integrated into the immediate area (i.e. awnings, hot tubs, pools, backyard kitchens, plants, seating, railings, etc.). Of course, your budget has something to do with your choices.
Patios are also a hub for family-centered activities: a place for meals; for children to play; for lengthy conversations that lead to important decisions; and for friends to gather outside around the barbecue.
