The English oak pergola – a gorgeous addition to any property.
Not to be confused with a pagoda (those tall, multi-levelled East Asian structures), a pergola is a structure that forms a shaded walkway or seating area, and can also be an extension of a building or form a kind of passageway between two structures.
We’ve already discussed how it can add value to your property – after all, having an impressive and attractive piece of green oak garden architecture leading to your home is a real selling point. They offer a distinctive wow-factor whatever style you opt for.
In this example, we created a corkscrew shaped compound curved pergola, with the idea behind the structure being that it draws you in and up to the main house’s front door.
This example embraces the European style for trailing plants and foliage around the beams, in order to create a shade arbour.
And in our latest project, we built an attractive pergola that leads along the garden, providing an incredible, corridor-like entrance.
Pergolas can be up to 4m without needing planning permission even if they are right up to the boundary, and this can add a sense of seclusion which will be very appealing to some home-owners.
