The versatility of pergolas allows them to be used in just about any Sun City yard, no matter the size. They can greatly vary in size. Freestanding ones can be placed just about anywhere. Attached ones are good thresholds between indoor and outdoor space, whether they’re right outside your back door, over your patio/outdoor gathering space, or even between a house and garage.
What Materials Are Pergolas Made With?
A pergola can be made out of a variety of materials, including:
- And vinyl.
Each has its pros, cons, and pricepoints. But, Alumawood gives you the best value for your money, which is why Turf Monsters recommends it so highly. It combines the best qualities of wood and aluminum; it’s strong, but won’t peel, crack, splinter, etc like real wood does, especially in our harsh climate.
So, why choose a pergola? For starters, they’re cheaper and less intrusive than a gazebo. Instead of a solid floor and enclosed roof, they have a latticework roof that provides nice shade for pool decks, patios, and more while still allowing plenty of air to flow through. They also make lovely additions to garden areas, making a quiet sitting corner, especially with the addition of some colorful hanging or vining plants.
