The Three Season Patio: Pergolas


I was in the Langley Home Depot this weekend picking up a few supplies for the rough cut Cedar covered Pergola were building right now. It was another warm February day and the sun was making a few unexpected appearances outside. The store clerk remarked she saw Sparrows in the rafters and an early spring was on its way. I couldn’t help but agree. This is the second pergola we’ve built this month. They make fantastic use of your patio space by aesthetically framing the area in and at the same time providing light filtering effects for the hot summer days. But why stop there? We also offer covered pergolas, clear plastic panels which have the added advantage of blocking UV rays from the sun and keeping you dry all year around. This effectively turns your patio into a three or even four season space, and when you have warmer weather like we did earlier this month, it’s only a bonus.

Pergola’s, arbours, and even trellises are a great way to make an impact addition to existing patios and outdoor spaces. If you’re considering a decorative concrete patio we can use an array of wood stains to work within the colour tones of the space. You may prefer the rustic look of the natural lumber which we source locally. Specialty timber is available on request, consider upgrading to 8″ posts for a more rugged look which only mirrors our natural landscape.
