Why Add A Pergola To Your Patio

Installing A Pergola In Your Backyard Has Many Benefits

Homeowners who have discovered the perks of relaxing and entertaining in their backyards are often considering the next improvement they can make to their outdoor space. There are many ways to add beauty, visual appeal, and an opportunity for more outdoor enjoyment. Landscape enhancements help create a mood or personality and extend your homes warmth and hospitality. If you are considering the next addition to your landscape, consider installing a pergola.

Pergolas Extend Your Living Space

If you have already installed a deck or patio, you likely added it to extend your living space beyond the walls of your home. You may love your outdoor living area but noted that it’s not quite as useful on a summer afternoon when the sun is beating down. In that case, a Pergola may be for you.

A properly designed and placed pergola can cast enough light shade to make even a hot summer afternoon enjoyable. Although they look somewhat unfinished to the untrained eye, pergolas do provide shade. The size of the beams and their spacing will determine exactly how much shade is provided. If you still desire additional protection, you can always install a retractable shade cover for even more shade. Pergolas are especially ideal in new neighborhoods with not a lot of trees for shade

An Entertainer’s Dream

Pergolas offer a platform to add custom lighting, speakers (or other entertainment media), outdoor kitchens, bars, and fireplaces. Whether you wish to host a barbeque, provide a beautiful location for parties, or simply enjoy relaxing, pergolas were designed for these exact moments. They offer a central location for friends and family to come together and the perfect spot to eat, relax, or play games.

They’re ideal for extending your entertainment space, offer a variety of design options, and can be tailored to fit even a modest budget. If you’re in search of a way to create an outdoor oasis, a pergola might be the perfect enhancement to your deck or patio.

Add Lasting Value to Your Home

Outdoor living is becoming increasingly popular, which puts pergolas high on the list for adding value to your home. Pergolas add special character to your landscape design while being useful and enjoyable, which may add desirability to your home should you decide to sell.

Every buyer seems to be on the lookout for homes that already have an attractive and trendy outdoor space located on the property. Therefore, the addition of a pergola onto your property could increase your home’s attractiveness and value.
