A Little Bit About Pergolas
A Lovely Way To Stay Cool
Pergolas are very similar to gazebos, in that they are both outdoor structures that can serve as beautiful focal points as an extension of your home. However, pergolas do not have closed roofs to protect you from the rain. Instead, it is usually topped with cross beams or a lattice, creating a more airy look. Its main functional purpose is to provide shade on a hot summer day while maintaining sufficient sunlight and air circulation.
Pergolas are much larger structures, usually expanding over an entertainment, dinner, or seating area. They are commonly decorated with string lights or vines to match the aesthetic of the rest of the space.
Below is a list of common uses to inspire what you envision for your pergola purchase:
- Outdoor dining area
- Space for family gatherings, (dinner) parties
- Garden focal point
- Casual seating area (with benches)
- Covered (pool) lounge area

Wooden pergolas require more maintenance due to the condition of the wood and how susceptible it can be to rot, insect damage and weathering over time. Aluminum pergolas are more lightweight and do not require as much maintenance, though there may be additional costs associated with installation.
The foundation for your backyard pergola will depend on the size and weight of your structure as well as the soil conditions in your area. Most commonly, post footings (which consist of concrete footings set into the ground) and auger anchors (which provide stronger structural support when installed in hard soils) are used to secure and stabilize the structure.

The amount of space you will need to install a pergola in your backyard will depend on the size and type of pergola you are constructing, as well as the purpose it is intended for. Generally speaking, smaller pergolas measuring 8′ x 8′ to 12′ x 12′ provide adequate shade and coverage for outdoor living areas, while larger structures such as those measuring 16′ x 16′ or more are suitable for poolside use or any other large-scale entertaining area. Additionally, when determining the space necessary for installation, be sure to factor in at least 3 feet of clearance from all sides of your backyard pergola.
When constructing a backyard pergola, it is important to use sealants or treatments on the wooden components in order to protect them from the elements and ensure long-term durability. The best option for sealing the wood will depend on the specific type of lumber you are using, as well as its intended application. For instance, some types of wood may require an oil-based sealant for optimal protection, while others could benefit from a water-repellent sealer. Be sure to consult with an experienced contractor or professional before selecting a sealant or treatment for your particular project.
