Perfect Pergolas: Our Favourite Five
Would you like this or something like it in your garden? I think it’s a pergola, but I’m not 100% sure…
Its taken me a while to get to grips with what a pergola actually is. I thought it was actually an arbour but Lizzy told me it was a fancy kind of trellis. And it seems the terms can be often interchangeable, but they shouldn’t be because trellises, arbors, and pergolas are rather different structures altogether. A trellis is latticework built to support climbers of any kind and it can be either freestanding or fixed to a wall in some way. It can be a simple panel attached to the side of a building. An arbor on the other hand usually has trellis in it by forming a passageway which is like a tunnel of climbing plants. Pergolas, too, are designed to support climbing plants but have posts supporting a roof like top. They’re most commonly used to shade a walkway or a deck. Got it? Good. I’m not sure I have, but anyway…
You can make your own of course, but if you’re not up to it or don’t have the time here are the best 5 pergolas available on the market – and tomorrow we’ll be featuring five fab scented climbers to grow up them
