Pergola / August 25, 2018 / JulietteHughes
In building this kind of embellishment the roof is very important because it will define what specific type of pergola you are going to build. A Pergola roof is important because it will hold the plant above the ground which is the usual purpose of pergolas. As a permanent architectural piece to a garden pergola designs have evolved throughout the centuries making it more appropriate for gardens and environmental designs. During medieval and renaissance period pergola designs were used by people making curve segments incorporated with green vines. It was usually seen in gardens of Lords living in fortresses.
This does not mean that any type of pergola would be effective. Instead you will have to be careful of what kind of pergola designs you approve of for your garden. Consider the following. 1. What is the exact location of the pergola as per the pergola designs? One of the very common designing flaws with regard to pergolas is that people do not pay attention to the location of various utilities in their gardens. Ideally your pergola should not be built upon any kind of utility related equipment. In fact your pergola should not even be built upon underground piping let alone over ground equipment.
2. Do the pergola plans take into account the sun? Since the purpose of the pergola is to protect people under it it is crucial that you take into account the path that the sun takes when it goes over your garden. If you want it to catch the sun you will still have to take the path of the sun into account. Therefore you should only approve the location of the pergola after you have confirmed that the suns path has been analyzed. 3. What materials do the pergola designs specify? Traditionally wood is regarded to be the best material for building pergolas. The reason for this is the fact that wood pergolas turn out to be cheaper than pergolas made from other materials.
