Beautiful Pergola Decorating Ideas for your Backyard


Everyone loves to spend evenings in the garden. Perfect backyards ask for the perfect pergolas. Most weekends or family gatherings would be perfect on the lawn but it does look plain without a pergola. Before we dive into the designs. Let’s just get to know what is a pergola & its types.

What is a pergola:

A patio roof is now referred to as a pergola. A patio is known as a paved outdoor area, an outdoor garden feature forming a shaded walkway, passageway, or sitting area. 

Types of pergola materials:

A pergola is an open structure with just support beams, no walls & just a decorative roof design. For the reason of resting in the shade / because of the weather conditions, shade is added to the patio, but at the start of the design, there isn’t a shade in the pergola. It’s later developed to shelter its users.

  1. Vinyl Pergolas: It has more popularity in the styles of pergolas as they are very affordable and the basic design itself gives the beauty to your garden. The best benefit of choosing a vinyl is that it can be customized according to your taste and personal preference.
  2. Open-Top: As it is an open-top it surely has more sunlight and air circulation.These make an appealing focus when you look around in the garden with their trailing vines. 
  3. Steel: Steel is a good choice if you have a harsh weather where you want to set it out as it is made of steel it is well in inclement weather, and it’s likely to last the longest.
  4. Sail: It utilizes a stretched fabric in situ of a standard lattice roof. If you prefer to have more shade you can choose this as it provides more shade than an open roof design and gives your house a modern look as well.
  5. Gable or Pitch: These have a roof which shields you from any weather, a gabled or pitched may be a great choice if you need a sheltered one.These are mostly seen over decks or patios over outdoor areas as they are most commonly used.
