  • Where to place your wooden pergola?
    If you’ve decided on a wooden pergola, you’ve got great taste. Up next is where to place it in your garden. Here are a few things to mull over when deciding where it fits best: Which part of your garden gets the most sun? If hosting summer barbeques and garden parties are on the agenda, then creating the right conditions for a relaxing social space is a must. If you have an existing patio or decking, this might be a ready-made spot to place your wooden pergola. Other popular locations include outside the backdoor - to help extend your time outdoors and expand your space indoors – and the spot that gets the most sun during the day or the evening Sunrise & Sunset If you'd like your pergola to be a place to relax and enjoy the sun, be sure to consider which areas of your garden catch the sun at different times of the day. Placing your pergola in an east-facing garden will give you morning sun, while a west-facing garden will provide evening sun – perfect for al fresco dining! Where offers the best view and accessibility? If your wooden pergola will be garden eye candy rather than a place for gatherings, it might be best to consider if you have any walkways that could use some sprucing up or shelter. Climbing plants and hanging baskets can look really special when introduced to a position in your garden that deserves to be highlighted. Keep in mind what you can see from your windows too; you want to make the most of how pretty your pergola looks! Which area provides a more serene and private setting? If you're looking to create a peaceful outdoor seating area where you can enjoy some peace and seclusion, you could also opt to place your pergola at the far end of your garden. They are perfect for sitting over comfortable garden furniture or hammocks too, making for a tranquil, restful outdoor chill-out area to relax and enjoy a good book!
  • How to care for your wooden pergola?
    There are a few ways to ensure your wooden pergola has a long life and looks its best. The first is to apply sealant and wood stain every year to keep the wood looking new and fresh. Before coating the pergola in paint, make sure to clean any garden debris or surface material to help guard against decay. Another way to maintain your pergola is to keep any climbing plants or vines trimmed to minimise any extra weight that may put pressure on the garden structure.
  • Do Pergolas provide shelter from the sun and rain?
    Because Pergolas have an open 'slatted' roof, they do not offer full shelter from sun and rain; however, dressing your pergola's slatted roof with natural features such as plants and vines will help provide some additional garden shelter (as well as heaps of natural style!). By adding some greenery to these garden structures, you can not only make it more aesthetically pleasing, but also help to create a more secluded and intimate setting.
  • Is Product Delivery Included with my Order?
    Yes, delivery of all products ordered from Pergola.co.uk is absolutely free! You can trust that your purchase will arrive quickly and safely, without any additional cost to you. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and delivery guarantee, so you can rest assured that your order will be handled with care.
  • How long does a Wooden Pergola Last?
    Like most home furnishings and additions, proper maintenance will help increase a pergola's longevity. Given annual care and treatment to help protect your pergola from the elements, you can expect a wooden pergola to last 10-12 years before the wood materials diminish in appearance. To help improve the longevity and integrity of your pergola, you should treat it each year with a good quality sealant and wood stain, perfect for areas of the UK that are more susceptible to wind and rain during autumn and winter. Regular cleaning will also help to keep your pergola looking new for years to come, and prevent the onset of any rot (which can occur to outdoor wooden fixtures that aren't properly maintained). You can provide additional protection from the sun and heat by adding shade to the roof of your pergola. There are a few different options available, including canvas, fabric, and even a 'natural' shade such as vines and greenery. By adding one of these features to your pergola, the additional shading can protect the supporting wooden beams from premature fading and deterioration.
  • Building your Wooden Pergola
    Because we sell a range of products in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes, there is no "one size fits all" set of assembly instructions that we can list here! However, you'll be pleased to know that each wooden pergola kit comes with detailed instructions and information to help you build your pergola in your backyard in a number of simple steps. We strongly advise carrying out any installation on a flat, open surface. To complete assembly effectively, you will also need at least two adults' assistance. We also advise contacting a qualified professional to complete the project if, for any reason, you don't have confidence in your ability to do so.
  • Can I decorate my Pergola?
    Most pergolas are designed with a straightforward, clean-lined look that makes them easy to dress up or down. If you want to add some extra decoration to your pergola, consider hanging fairy lights or lanterns from the beams for a magical evening ambience where you can sit and stargaze. For a more natural look, you could drape climbing plants over the beams and let them grow wild!
  • How can I make my Pergola more private?
    If you're looking to create a more intimate space, there are a few things you can do. Hanging curtains from the beams that are a little shorter than the height of your pergola is an easy way to add some privacy, while still letting in natural light. Or, for a more permanent solution, you could install lattice panels around the perimeter of your pergola. This will provide more solid walls and give you the option to grow climbing plants to add some greenery and privacy.
  • Which are the best roofing materials for a Pergola?
    When it comes to roofing materials for your pergola, there are a few things to consider. If you're looking for protection from the sun and rain, then a solid roof is a good option. For a more open feel, a thatched roof or lattice panels will let in some light and air while still providing some shelter. If you live in an area with high winds, then it's important to choose roofing materials that will withstand gusts. Thatched roofs are not recommended in windy areas, as the straw can be blown away. For a more permanent solution, solid roofs made from materials like metal or tile are a good option.

Frequently Asked Corner Pergola Questions

A corner pergola is the ideal structure to frame or delineate part of your garden or outside space. Enclose a seating or dining area or fashion a cosy corner where you are secluded from the rest of the garden. Our corner pergolas are built from the best quality timber so you know they’ll last the course, plus there is a choice of styles and sizes so you can create the perfect frame for your outdoor dream.

 

For gardens or outside spaces which lack any natural features, a corner pergola can add interest and emphasis or enclose a specific area and turn it into a feature. Corner pergolas can provide a tranquil hideaway in large and busy gardens, a simple rustic curtain that creates a den or hideaway. It’s like a room outdoors!

 

A bit different to a standard pergola which is often used for paths and walkways, a corner pergola creates a defined area. There are different sizes and configurations offering endless permutations which can be decorated and styled with your choice of lighting and plants.

What is a Corner Pergola?

A corner pergola can be made up of two or three panels offering different options from square framing to something more triangular. It adds structure to a seating area next to the house or a screen with trailing plants to create a hidden spot. A corner pergola provides a natural barrier to demarcate different areas of the garden and can act as a windbreak. The lattice panels offer endless decorative opportunities for plants and lighting making corner pergolas one of the best multi-purpose products you can buy for your outside space.

"I opted for a corner pergola as we have a square, level and frankly featureless garden. The pergola is sited in a bottom corner and breaks up the uniform design, it encloses an area of the garden which is a real suntrap. I’m glad I bought from Pergola.co.uk because they offer quality products and really good customer service which gave me confidence throughout the process as this was my first pergola purchase."

"For me, it was important to get advice before buying a corner pergola as we live in quite a windy location, and I was worried about stability and safety. Pergola.co.uk couldn’t be more helpful and the quality of my corner pergola is impressive, it’s really robust and stable, not like some other ones I looked at which were flimsy. Best of all, delivery was free which makes a difference when you live in Scotland!"

Jenny

Fife

"I already have one lovely pergola from Pergola.co.uk so they were an obvious choice when I decided I wanted to revamp a tired and largely forgotten area of my garden and turn it into something special. The corner pergola is incredibly versatile, so versatile that I still haven’t quite made up my mind how I want it to look. It’s lovely to be able to create a permanent feature which is rustic and natural and just like my previous experience with them, the service from Pergola.co.uk was excellent."

Roxanne

Hull

"I have a converted barn next to my home which is used as a holiday let. The conversion is new, and the garden lacks any established plants and trees, so we did have a bit of an issue with privacy. We bought a corner pergola from Pergola.co.uk to put around the hot tub and it’s just such a winner, not only does that corner of the garden look great now, but it’s also made it easier to decorate that space with hanging baskets and fairy lights. Holidaymakers love it as they still get the beautiful views but there is just a bit more privacy and shelter from any breeze. Pergola.co.uk were stellar in terms of their service and delivery and the corner pergola is really excellent quality."

Name: James Cleverely

Location: Basildon, Essex

Cost :£998

James has a lovely large garden behind his family house, but it is overlooked by two other properties. A corner pergola allowed James to site a new hot tub in the perfect location towards the end of the garden because it provided some screening and privacy as well as creating a stylish decorative feature. Now, relaxing spa soaks are done behind a wall of flowers and twinkling lights.

Name: Mary Barton

Location: Derby

Cost: £1,299

Mary bought a corner pergola and decking kit and has completely transformed a plain and rather uninspiring backyard behind her terraced property in Derby into a secluded and welcoming dining area, perfect for socialising with family and friends. Because the corner pergola is not solid timber, the area still benefits from natural light and doesn’t appear cluttered or cramped. Dressed with hanging baskets and fairy lights, the transformation is remarkable.
