These do-it-yourself backyard pergola projects are ideal for a weekend warrior like you who wants a job that can go from start to finish in just a couple of days.

Types of Pergolas

Aarons Outdoor Living provides you with a wide range of pergola ideas. Whether you need a big or small pergola, short or tall, you can find everything you need to complete your DIY projects in no time! Pergolas are great for keeping the sun off your face, providing a great place to relax and enjoy a meal. You can create an open-air pergola where the sun can beam through the wood or add a roof to your pergola to enjoy the backyard even in the rainy season. Most pergolas are made from wood, but some are made of metal, steel, and plastic.

Sizes of Pergolas

When choosing the right size for your pergola project, consider what you will use the space for: will you entertain or enjoy meals under the stars? Will you want to read in a cozy blanket when the rain is pouring down? Do you want a place to relax and get out of the sun after a dip in your swimming pool? Size matters when it comes to the purpose of a pergola. Please don’t leave it to chance. Consider what you want the space for, and you’ll be better equipped to decide your desired size. Average pergolas measure 10’ x 10’ and can extend your indoor living space. Adding outdoor sofas, chairs, and even a fire pit can enhance the look of your pergola and help you get the most out of it. If you are going to place furniture in your pergola, consider the size and layout of the furniture before you start building your new pergola. You’ll want to ensure plenty of room to lounge and relax in style and comfort.

Materials Used for the Perfect Pergola

Choosing right materials for your pergola is essential to the longevity of the space. Aarons Outdoor Living offers a variety of materials to choose from. Still, the most popular materials used to build pergolas include treated pine, which is economical and sturdy, and colorbond roofing materials that last in the weather for years to come. You can add a deck under your pergola for more functionality and patio design options. Choosing from various materials for decking, you can make your new pergola unique. Mixing and matching materials can create an exciting look and add value to your home.

If assembling pergola plans seems overwhelming, set your mind at ease and opt for building a pergola from a kit rather than trying to decipher D.I.Y. projects for how to build a pergola.
