In this blog post, we’ll look at what a pergola is and the three reasons you should install a pergola in your backyard straight away.

What’s a Pergola?

With Italian essence engraved in its distinctive features, a pergola is a structure with four columns or posts and features lattice beams on its roof that don’t completely block the sun out – which is the case with a patio cover. Instead, it’ll just block out a portion of sunlight.

Here’s what a beautiful pergola looks like:

These airy structures are commonly made of vinyl, wood, or aluminum, depending on your preferences and outdoor space.

Pergolas can literally fit to any design preference. They can be made with straight or curved lines. On top of this, they’re affordable, easy-to-maintain, and will help you level up your outdoor space in an enticing manner.

The biggest difference between a pergola and a patio cover is that a patio cover acts as a true extension of a house. Whereas you don’t necessarily need to have a pergola as an extension of your home. Instead, you can install this individual structure in your backyard anywhere you seem fit. Depending on how you look at it, a pergola has an unfinished look, which is what makes it even more visually appealing.

3 Reasons You Should Install a Pergola in Your Backyard

Here’s why you should install a pergola in your backyard:

  • Provides Outdoor Protection
  • Adds Visual Interest to a Yard
  • Acts as Perfect Outdoor Entertainment Space

Provides Outdoor Privacy & Protection

Don’t worry if you live too close to your neighbors. Building a pergola is the perfect way to increase your outdoor privacy. But make sure that you are building it in the right spot such that it blocks the view. So, no more having to worry about your neighbors peeking in while you spend quality time with your loved ones.

You can even add outdoor screens or latticework to one or all the slides for noise reduction and additional privacy.

On top of this, you can even protect your outdoor space from extreme weather conditions year-round. It doesn’t matter if you want to build it near your house, in a remote space in your backyard, or on the patio; a pergola will always allow you to enjoy quality outdoor time without you requiring to worry about the weather.

Adds Visual Interest to a Yard

A pergola can turn an ordinary backyard or home into a visually appealing and enticing place to live in. And that’s the dream for many. Pergola’s unfinished look brings a lot to the table and contributes to its overall beauty. On top of this, the open roof grids plus rafters make up the perfect place to hang outdoor lanterns or potted plants.

Depending on your taste and preferences, you can add various elements to level up your backyard’s overall appeal.

Acts as a Perfect Outdoor Entertainment Space

Whether you want the space all to yourself or want to host a party, a pergola can act as a perfect outdoor entertainment space.

You can call your friends over or even host a family barbecue party. Imagine enjoying the pleasant atmosphere with your loved ones. And the best part – and I’ll repeat that again – you won’t even have to worry about the weather.

You can add a grill, outdoor furniture, and even a TV to turn it into an exciting outdoor living space. And trust me – that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Even with the right words, it’s not possible to describe how a pergola can turn your day awesometacular.
