Thicker Structures: Thicker wood pergola structures tend to last longer. Make sure you have compared wood thickness and the quality before buying. Check the amount and quality of fasteners your set includes. An easy way to compare 2 similarly sized Pergolas is to compare shipping weight. Shipping weight is an authentic indicator of the heft of competing products.
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.
The basic features of the walkway pergolas are similar to that of their entryway counterparts. However. unlike an entryway pergola. which is generally placed near the door. a walkway pergola is placed along a path within the yard or a sidewalk. There are some who use them for adding drama to their yard. Some. on the other hand. use them for creating functional coverings for pools. gardens or garage walks.
Have the pergola plans been made to scale? Depending upon your garden. the size of the pergola would also vary. It would be entirely pointless if you end up with a pergola too big or too small because it would fail to serve its primary purpose. Hence. make sure that the size of the pergola corresponds to the size of your garden before giving the go ahead for its construction.
