Vinyl pergolas are used for outdoor areas where it is good to have a space that is shielded from the sun. Pergolas are lattice work trellis that can be attached to a structure. They may also be detached or a stand alone structure. The pergola is usually planted with vines that cover the top and sides, making a walkway or a seating area that is somewhat free of sun. Some outdoor cafes find these helpful and quite colorful for their outdoor seating. You may plant flowers or vines in pots and train them to go up the lattice work if this is more convenient for you.
Vinyl pergolas can be bought in kits so that the home owner or do-it-yourself person can put one together quite easily. The advantage of vinyl is that it is quite sturdy and does not require a lot of maintenance. These kits can be bought online or at some home improvement stores.
Pergolas provide another way for you to enjoy the outdoors. There are many different climbing vines to use to decorate your structure. Some have flowers or I have seen some use gourds. This creates quite the conversation piece while growing something that you can use. Share
