Shady Side of Pergolas
The sun’s rays can feel invigorating when you are enjoying your time around the pool, but those same rays can be harmful if you stay out too long. Having a shaded area will allow you the time and comfort outside with minimizing your exposure to the sun. Pergolas for pools give you enough shade and sun to have a safe pool experience.
Not only for swimming pool, but It creates a definite area for eating, entertaining or lounging around with a magazine, offering more privacy than a deck or patio. You can add drapes, screens or other materials to the pergola and you’ll have even more privacy from peeping eyes.
You can also implement ridiculously comfortable outdoor furniture and propane heating for those cooler nights
Plants for Pergolas
Not only will climbing plants be an attractive addition to the pergola, but they’ll also provide you with even more shade and privacy. Your pergola can also provide you with a space for growing vines or other plants that need support. Hops, wisteria, clematis, ivy or grapes may all do well, depending on the growing conditions where you build your pergola. Keep in mind that some plants are better suited for areas around swimming pools.
Adding comforts to your landscape will add value to your home, however you should plan out your landscape design according to your property’s features. Doing so will save you money and time in the long run.
