With Spring quickly approaching now is the time to start planning a new addition to your backyard, a Pergola!
A Pergola can be a fantastic addition to any backyard and can be created in many different ways to suit different spaces and design tastes.
Generally constructed of natural hardwood, Pergolas can compliment any backyard setting and provide a slew of additional (and amazingly functional) benefits.
Let’s take a look at 5 reasons why you need to build a Pergola in your backyard.
Quick and Inexpensive to Build
Pergola’s can be constructed quite quickly and with minimal materials, keeping the cost down and impact high. Depending on the design and size of materials being used, some Pergolas can even be constructed in 1 day!
If you are unsure about what style would best suit your space, a professional Pergola builder like TCS Home Services can show you many different designs that can be customized to suit your space and budget perfectly.
Enjoy Outdoor Dining
Spring and Summer are magical times to be outdoors. Can you imagine being able to serve up twilight meals to family and guests under your new Pergola? There really is nothing better on a nice warm day or evening.
The great thing about Pergolas is that they also double as a structure to attach your light fittings. You can either have a large central light that illuminates your central table, or go for a more subtle approach and have many smaller lights wrapped around the beams to give off a subtle glow from the entire structure.
You can even wire up some speakers into the corners to play your favorite tracks while entertaining!
Extend Your Outdoor Living Space
By adding a Pergola to your backyard you instantly increase your living space, and create another area to either entertain, or relax with a good book.
Maybe you work from home and need another space to break up the week. Rather than spending all your time in the home office, retreat outside on a nice day and set up your work station under the Pergola.
You will be amazed at the difference to productivity and creativity when you have the opportunity to work outside.
Even if you live in a colder climate, by simply adding a some heater bars to the top horizontal cross beams can instantly create a warm and cozy place to relax or entertain.
Provide Ever-Changing Shade
Pergolas are unique in the way they offer shade to an open space. With the exposed beams being evenly spaced apart, Pergolas offer shade in different places throughout the day.
This is due to the direction of the moving sun and how it shines sunlight through the structured beams.
Due to the ever changing shade patterns, you can enjoy a cooler section of your yard without totally blocking out all sunlight.
This is great for plants and other greenery that you may wish to decorate your Pergola with too!
Increase Your Property Value
You will be amazed at just how functional a Pergola addition can be to your property, and buyers just love to see a designated outside entertaining area!
Not only are you adding aesthetic appeal to your property’s landscape, but also, you are essentially increasing the overall living space of the property too.
By creating a separate area where you can comfortably spend your time outside the home, you will also be increasing the perceived value to future buyers in the process.
