Why Build A Pergola In Your Backyard


As Summer approaches, many home owners may be thinking of ways to enhance their property for the warmer months. One option home owners have to augment their property is with a pergola verandah. These outdoor shelters create an outdoor centrepiece during gatherings and social occasions. They provide very effective shelter against the weather and compound a stunning visual landmark on your property. There are several other reasons to buy one. We have put together the following list to describe the features and benefits of a backyard pergola.

What Is A Pergola?

A pergola is an outdoor structure characterised by four pillars and a roof. The roofing may be open or closed to provide access to sunshine or shelter from rain, depending on the needs of the occupant. These structures may be free standing or added as an attachment to the house. In either case, they generally contain some form of seating and tables and form an attractive feature in any outdoor area.

Generally made from a range of materials, the best are made from colourbond steel. These varieties have better structural support and are better at withstanding the natural elements. With a corrugated roof, any rain, hail and sunshine will simply flow off the roof, leaving any occupants underneath warm, dry and safe. A shaded walkway will be provided, which offers shelter from the elements, yet an open structure that provides a nice space for entertaining in

Why Build A Pergola?

Not only are pergolas stunning centrepieces and shelters, they add to the value of your property, complementing outdoor living areas with manmade brilliance. At KBMS, all of our pergola designs are made from high quality Colourbond steel and tough corrugated plexiglass. This makes them extremely durable add-ons to your house that will stand the test of time.

Pergolas can be complemented with natural plant life too. Vines or other climbing plants can be installed on the vertical posts and allowed to climb onto the roof via the side of the pergola. Placing plants inside the structure’s walls is another way to enhance the aesthetic quality of the structure. Greenery in any outdoor living space can be very relaxing and leaves a good impression on both guests and potential buyers.

Traditional pergolas also provide a defined space in the backyard. This can offer some comfort and additional privacy. A structure in your backyard can add shape and form to an otherwise bland space. Also, if you have low fences, and don’t want to be observed in your backyard a deck or patio and pergola can be the perfect way to achieve your desire for privacy.
