A great deal depends on personal preference. Get ideas from several different sources – magazines, the internet, gardening books, other gardens – and try to visualise the overall look of your garden. Match the style and materials to the design of your existing garden, or your new design plan. A new plan can even be developed around a particularly stunning pergola, setting the feel of the entire area, much as the interior design of a room can be based around a piece of art work.
But, don’t be mistaken. There is no need to cover ourselves completely. The key is in using slats or lattice for a roof that will diffuse the sun’s rays when they are at their peak. Two by two inch slats that are spaced a few inches apart are ideal for reducing the glare and the direct sunlight your patio will receive. The first essential before starting any pergola project is to carefully consider the location. You want to construct your structure in a way that takes into account the direction it is facing and how it will be affected by the daily sun and shade patterns of your yard.
This can be achieved in several ways and doesn’t necessarily involve more than one person! A walkway pergola or a swinging arbour might be just the job, with plenty of fragrant and beautiful plants to give your garden a wonderfully romantic feel. For a more intimate romantic setting, look at the ideas in the socializing section, applying them a little differently: for instance, calming colours, stronger smelling climbing plants or even incense, soft and luxurious furnishings, warmth and subdued lighting – all to heighten the senses.
This style of pergola is a truly wonderful feature for the garden. It has a unique form, due to the fact that its rafters radiate from a central point. And, when completed, what a fantastic structure it is, especially when draped with the most heavenly climbing plants! But, could you really build one yourself? Yes! And you will be so proud of it when it’s finished.
