Pergolas Design & Installation
Think of pergolas as an elegant solution for outdoor spaces lacking in dramatic appeal. They offer a focal point with a gentle shading effect that will grab attention and provide lasting, eye-catching appeal. Pergolas also work with existing design elements considering their utilitarian nature and overall minimalistic vibe.
Origin of Pergolas
Pergolas have been around for a while. They date back to antiquity. The word pergola comes from an Italian word originating from the Latin word pergula. There is a long history of pergola use, and they are unlikely to go anywhere anytime soon.
Pergolas seem to be unmatched in terms of achieving a timeless style and affording classic modern appearance. A notable historical example of the pergola use is at the priory of Orsan garden.
Form and Function
Pergolas are overhead structures similar to other structures for outdoor protection from excessive sunlight. Pergolas have the overall luxury of gazebo with greater ease of access thanks to an open design and simple structural detail.
Longview Professional Landscapers & Outdoor Living Designs understands that a sense of timeliness is important when designing and adapting outdoor spaces. Let them go to work and have available amenities in no time!
Pergolas are relatively simple to install and maintain. The focus is on material choice and overall durability. Materials may be aluminum steel or other heavy-duty metal. Wood has been used in pergola building for years to achieve more of a terraced effect.
Comparison to Alternatives
The difference between pergolas and other porch or independent outdoor enclosures lies in the unique shutter appearance of pergola overhead slats. The openness enables light to shine into the area and will also accommodate the growth of flowering creeping vines and plants.
A pergola is sure to be an elegant statement piece in any outdoor area with or without greenery and flora. Its slatted top will also accommodate hanging plants and enable the perfect amount of light to scatter around potted plants or foliage beneath.
Light Filtering and Open Airiness
The design of a pergola top enables light to flow evenly below and prevent blaring light. This won’t help in the rain, but that’s not the idea behind installing and enjoying a pergola.
A pergola is built to withstand moisture and water flow but not offer complete protection from the elements to what’s underneath. Its support comes from columns that are usually rather simple in design.
The straight form columns offer a lot of strength, given the comparison to more intricate designs available for other types of outdoor structures.
Strong Visual Appeal
Longview Professional Landscapers & Outdoor Living Designs is knowledgeable about planting for shade considerations and visual appeal. Their expertise will ensure that any pergola area is living up to its classic name.
Waterproof fabric and related outdoor material can hang from the structure if added protection is necessary or desirable. Pergolas will work well to connect outdoor areas too. A pergola can be built to connect the back porch to a side yard area, for example.
