How Would You Like To Get Started
A Pergola is a structure in the garden that forms either a promenade (walkway) or a seating area. It’s constructed with vertical posts supporting rafters, cross beams and/or open lattice. Plants can be trained to climb and grow over pergolas to cover the structure which provides dappled shade, or a roof can be added to give weather protection.
They’re designed to beautifully connect the home to the garden. A pergola can add a ‘wow’ factor to your home and set it apart from the neighbours. As well as providing extra space for plants and flowers to grow, it also gives weather protection from the outside elements and can obscure unsightly views. At diamond Patios we love creating pergolas.
With a roof to weatherproof the area (shade on hot days and water-proofing on rainy days), a pergola allows you to sit outside almost every day of the year. You could even add a fan to the ceiling/beams to make it an even nicer spot to sit on warm days.
Time spent outdoors increases health, both physically and mentally, by allowing you to get increased clean air and vitamin D. If you set up gym equipment or games in the undercover area (like table tennis), you can also use this outdoor space as a dedicated exercise zone. The garden should be a lovely, relaxing space, so you could also do yoga or meditation in the safety of your pergola.
Children – especially teens – are notoriously difficult to get outdoors. By creating a place that’s enticing, private, and comfortable, in the safety of your own garden, you can get the whole family to spend quality time outside.
A well-built pergola that blends with your home’s architecture can enhance your property’s overall appeal and give it a unique touch. A pergola can be customized to match your home’s style and colour scheme, making it a seamless addition to your property. It significantly enhances curb appeal, especially if your house is on a block that lacks privacy/shade.
Because a pergola makes your outdoor living area more functional and comfortable, this is an added benefit that homebuyers are likely to appreciate. Potential buyers/renters who come to see your home on a hot day will love the sight of a relaxing shaded area. A pergola is incredibly inviting and gives the home a synchronicity with the garden, giving your home a luxurious and homely look.
It’s so easy to instal a pergola and start growing some plants around it (such as ivy climbing the beams), but doing this could add a lot of monetal value to your home when it comes to selling.
A pergola can increase your living space by providing an outdoor living area. With a pergola, you can create an outdoor room that can be used for various activities such as entertaining guests, dining, and relaxing. You can also add outdoor furniture such as a couch, chairs, and a dining table to create a comfortable and functional outdoor living space.
The pergola can be a poolside patio spot that allows for shade, relaxing and eating, or a hidden garden getaway. It can even serve as a promenade into a larger outdoor structure, like a verandah or granny flat. You could even add a barbecue and make it the perfect Aussie family Christmas spot!
Regardless of how you use it, a pergola can be an impressive addition to your garden’s aesthetic, creating a stunning usable space that will bring you joy for years to come.
