Sunny days are coming so prepare to spend time in the garden as much as possible. Together with sunshades and umbrellas, pergolas can be a welcome respite from the midday heat. Made of sturdy boards and crossbeams, they are touched up with lattice and sometimes vines. Traditional pergolas make shaded walkways, sometimes between two garden walls, or a sheltered area next to a building. With the right materials and guidance, they can be easily built. They can also serve as freestanding structures providing protection from the sun over a garden terrace. For today, we gather a great collection of 50 Pergola Design Ideas To Transform Your Garden Completely.
Wooden pergolas were common features of Italian Renaissance gardens, often covering walkways or serving as grape arbors. Today, the same design can be used to define a passageway or frame a focal point in your yard. Add a climbing plant such as wisteria or, yes, grapevines, and your pergola will provide color and shade as well. Nowadays wooden pergolas that extend from the side of a building to a feature, such as a terrace or a swimming pool, are extremely popular. Enjoy!
