Pergola buying guide for the garden

Enjoying the garden and/ or the patio is one of the best experiences that every human being can have, but to make it even more wonderful it is very interesting to acquire a pergola that, in addition to beautifying the place, protects us from the sun. And, depending on where we live, it can be very uncomfortable (and even harmful) to be exposed to the sun’s rays, especially during the summer.

Fortunately, today we find a wide variety of models and, also, prices, so having one is as simple as taking a look at our selection while taking note of the advice we offer you.

What is a pergola?

The pergolas are magnificent elements, formed by a corridor flanked by more or less wide pillars, at the upper end of which the latticework sits, which is open. The material used to make them can be metal, wood or bricks and beams. It is believed that they began to be done around the middle of the year 1600. Until then what were done were the so-called green tunnels, formed by young and flexible shoots of willows or hazelnuts that were joined in such a way that they took the shape of an arc, and on which Longitudinal strips were woven on which climbing plants later grew.

But of course, these shoots did not last forever, so the creation of an artificial structure, although with an appearance that combines very well with the natural elements of the gardens, was a discovery for the gardeners of the time. In fact, it became the favorite structure of naturalistic gardens of the 18th and 19th centuries, and even today they are almost always included in the designs of these places.
