What is a pergola and how a pergola can improve your lifestyle and increase property value

Coastal Patios

There are many different types of structures you can use for your outdoor area in order to make the most of the space. One of these structures is called a pergola and it is one of many options Coastal Patios can offer.

A pergola is a great use of outdoor space that can be used for barbeques, entertaining or just spending some alone time relaxing in the half-shade, half-sun.

Many people tend to focus only on their indoor space forgetting to give their outdoor space some love. Getting fresh air and enjoying nature is very important for recharging the soul.

What Is A Pergola?

According to Merriam-Webster, the pergola definition is, “a structure usually consisting of parallel colonnades supporting an open roof of girders and cross rafters.” But let us tell you in todays world they are so much more than that.

Pergolas are structures that offer shade to users by having many different materials used like Aluminium slats, Decorative Screens, Fixed louvres or adjustable louvres that can cover the area for full or part sun/shade. This can also be great in the summer moonlight with a glass of wine or cold beer.

A pergola is similar to other outdoor structures and it is easy to get them confused. At Coastal Patios we can let you know why to get a pergola.

What Is The Point Of A Pergola?

A pergola is a structure that you use in your outdoor space. It can provide a bit of customizable shade for you without blocking out all of the sunshine. It’s a great happy medium to use in your yard for gatherings and relaxing. Also it is a great place for those plants that like a bit of shade in the hot summer months

Sun or Shade

With pergolas, you get can the best of both worlds. You can have full shade or nearly full sunshine or anything in-between and with our unique adjustable louvre Pergola you can have it all. The same can’t be said for other similar structures. That’s why pergolas are so unique and becoming more popular in homes today.


Pergolas are perfect for gathering together with family and friends. You can enjoy the outdoors under them to eat or relax and they are perfect for pool parties, birthdays, summer evenings and so much more. It is a shame not to appreciate them.
