Brief History of Pergolas

Pergolas serve the dual purpose of offering beauty as well as shade. The idea of constructing pergolas is as old as the eighteenth century when the Egyptians built them in their gardens. It is the most convenient way of relaxing after a day of hectic schedules, as well as a nice place to unwind in the evening with family and friends.

Large patios are great for holding small parties or for introducing wedding couples. It is the perfect place when the pergola offers full shade with the help of climbing vines and flowering plants placedĀ on the top. Wooden pergolas are nearer to nature then metal or plastics ones.
