5 Great Uses for Your New Pergola

Many homeowners all over the country are installing pergolas in their yards to improve their aesthetics and add a little variety to their landscape. At The Plant Concierge, we specialize in pergola design and installation and we’ve collected some of the most popular uses of them for you here!

1. Color

If you feel your landscape or property is lacking in color, installing a pergola can be just the thing to brighten it up and give it a new look. Pergolas come in a wide variety of colors, making it easy to enhance your exterior decorating scheme while still creating a good balance.

For more monochromatic outdoor living spaces, a white pergola can enhance your property.

2. Shade

Summers can be hot, especially in Dallas, which is why many choose to install pergolas to increase the shade surrounding their home. You can choose from a partial shade pergola or a fully-shaded one depending on your preferences.

3. Privacy

Want to create your own little nook in the yard away from the eyes of neighbors or passersby? Installing a pergola will provide elegance and privacy to your property. The best part is that you can customize your pergola to suit your needs, adding privacy screens or shades, as well as roll-up curtains and more.

4. Contrast

If you have a huge backyard you don’t know what to do with, installing a pergola and other lawn fixtures can help you provide some contrast and use some of that empty space. You can install a pergola on your deck to create more of a vertical feature or construct a standalone pergola in the yard to minimize some of that sprawling space.

5. Accessories

With pergolas, it’s easy to accessorize them to suit your taste and style. For example, you can hang artwork or potted plants to personalize your pergola. They also provide an additional opportunity to include more landscape lighting on your property, not only highlighting your yard’s features but also creating a focal point.
