  • 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 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.

Wooden Pergola

What is a Wooden Pergola?

A wooden pergola is an outdoor structure that is made of sturdy wood and has an open lattice roof. Pergolas are often used as garden features or as shady walkways and can be found in a variety of sizes and styles.


Simply put, a Wood Pergola is an outdoor structure that is commonly used to support vines or other plants and acts as a semi-sheltered cover for an outdoor area such as light and airy garden dining spaces or BBQ stations. They are made from timber and can be either freestanding or attached to a building (we call these lean-to Pergolas!).


Pergolas are usually constructed by erecting 4 solid wooden columns or beams and have rafters made from timber slats, rather than having a fully solid shelter like our garden Gazebos. They can be a great addition to any outdoor space, as they can provide shade and some (but not complete) protection from the sun. It can also be a great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors.

Why Choose a Wooden Pergola?

Wooden Pergolas offer a natural-looking shaded area, meaning they fit aesthetically with other wooden garden additions such as lattice and trellis fixtures and even a freestanding garden arbor.


Wood Pergolas are also incredibly fun and versatile when it comes to customisation and accessories, such as adding hanging plants to create a stunning 'forest garden' effect or string lights to create an illuminated seating area for warm summer nights. You can also paint or stain your pergola to match your home's exterior or personalise it to your taste.


There are a few key benefits of wooden pergolas that make them a popular choice for many homeowners. Wood is a natural material that will complement any garden or backyard, and can be painted or stained to match your existing outdoor furniture and decor. Wooden pergolas are very strong and durable, able to withstand heavy winds and snowfall. They're also easy to maintain, and if properly cared for, a wooden pergola can last for many years.
