7 Reasons Why Your Garden Needs a Pergola
There’s nothing like the feeling of relaxing in your garden on a nice summer’s day.
The sun is shining, birds are singing and maybe you’re enjoying a few drinks with friends and family.
Sounds pretty good right?
Well, if you want to take your garden or outdoor living space to the next level and ensure you can make the most of it during these occasions, installing a pergola is always a great choice.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the top seven reasons why you should consider getting a pergola in your garden.
What Is A Pergola?
If you’re unsure exactly what a pergola is, Cyra Group is here to help.
In short, a pergola is a type of garden structure that is constructed from aluminium which provides people with a shady walkway, seating area or outdoor space. Typically, a pergola is made up of pillars that support a beamed roof which can be covered with a canopy or left open.
There is a wide variety of pergola types available, with the team here at Cyra Group regularly providing customers with bespoke options, as well as glass rooms and other outdoor living elements that can enhance your property and lifestyle.
The Benefits of A Pergola
As well as looking great and improving the overall appearance of your garden, a pergola can also provide your outdoor space with numerous functional benefits.
Extends your living space
Pergolas are often paired with – or located close to- your actual property, backing onto conservatories, patios, glass rooms or verandas. In these instances, they’re able to wonderfully fuse together your interior and exterior, creating a smooth transition between the two and extending your home by making your garden an addition to your living space.
Provides a dedicated area for entertaining
When the warmer weather comes around, we often want to get outside and make the most of it.
Many people will also look to host barbeques, throw summer parties or simply gather friends and families to enjoy the weather. Having a pergola installed in your garden provides a dedicated space to do all of the above, and adding outdoor or lounge furniture will help create an enviable socialising space for you and your loved ones.
Adds value to a property
As well as helping you get more enjoyment and practicality from your outdoor space, installing a pergola could also increase the overall value of your property.
Typically, adding any kind of outdoor elements can make your home more attractive to prospective buyers, thus increasing the value.
While it’s not the only factor that may impact your property’s value, if you’re looking to sell your home now or think you may do so in the future, installing a pergola is worth considering.
Protection from the elements
Another great benefit of pergolas is that they provide your garden with a beautifully shaded area where you can chat with friends and family away from the sun’s harsh rays. This is a particular benefit if you’ve spent large portions of the day in the heat and want to escape to somewhere cooler.
Plus, they can protect you from rain and wind, too. This makes them a great choice all year round no matter what the weather throws at you.
While pergolas are open structures, they do offer additional privacy – especially if you have low fences that are shared by neighbours.
If you want to make the space even more private, you can add drapes or screens to the pergola.
They look great
Last but certainly not least, pergolas look great!
Having pergolas installed can really enhance the aesthetics of your garden, and you can even customise them with your own personal touches, such as heating, lighting and much more to inject a sense of your unique personality and style.
