What are the Benefits of a Pergola?
A pergola is an archway commonly found in gardens, parks and yards which can instantly give your property a touch of the Mediterranean.
With their open and airy setup and undoubted beauty, there are a number of benefits for pergola’s, which are going to discuss in our latest blog.
C&W Direct is the leading provider of Ultraframe pergola’s for customers right across Staffordshire, as part of our Outdoor Living Range.
Six Reasons to Choose Pergola’s for Your Home
1. Beauty – Pergolas (as we have already mentioned) have a truly unique beauty to them with an unmatched sculptural and architectural design which helps create visual interest in your garden space. Pergolas are also extremely popular with gardeners as they provide a medium where they can display their beautiful plants.
2. Enhance Garden Landscaping – Pergolas are beautiful on their own plus they can also lend support to garden landscaping features such as climbing flowers, vines and ivy. If you plant these flowers and vines in the right place they will weave their way up to your pergola’s supports and through its roof-like beams. Plants such as wisteria, clematis are ideal or even grape vines plus you can hang planters from the beams. Just imagine a vast pergola that is teaming with clambering vines and colourful flowers!
3. Define Your Space – A brand new pergola will help to define your outdoor space plus you can add brick or concrete flooring or decking to create the ultimate link between your indoors and garden. Combining a unique flooring with a pergola’s pillars and beams you will redefine your outdoor living space and impress your guests.
4. Get in the Shade – Although you may think that Pergola’s can look a little unfinished to the untrained eye – they do provide shade. The devil is in the detail, as the size of your beams and spacing between them will determine how much shade is provided. While you will not get the complete shade you will get a fantastic view of the sky and stars during those hot summer nights. If you prefer the roof area to fully shaded you can cover the beams with a fabric.
5. A Cost-Effective Solution – If you are looking to inject your outdoor space with some life but do not have an unlimited budget – a pergola is an ideal option. They are easy to construct and will have a big impact on your garden; especially if you decide to add some climbing flowers or other plants.
6. Durable and Low Maintenance – Pergolas are an extremely durable extension to your garden living space that are not susceptible to termites and any other wood-boring insects plus they do not require a yearly staining or regular maintenance. Our range of Pergola’s is not treated with harmful chemicals which makes them safe for your entire family and the environment.
Whether you are looking to define a section of your garden, add some shade or just a beautiful attraction, you can always rely on a pergola from C&W Direct.
