Why a Pergola is a Great Choice for Your Outdoor Space

Jul 4, 2023

There are a whole host of ways to enhance your garden or outdoor space with furniture or structures, and pergolas are among the very best types around.

At LifestyleGarden®, we supply our customers across the country with quality pergolas that are able to elevate every outdoor space.

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at why a pergola is a great choice for your garden, and how the LifestyleGarden® can help take your outdoor space to the next level.

What is a pergola?

A pergola is an outdoor structure which acts as a walkway, passageway or seating area where people can get out of the sun, or shelter from rain.

Typically, pergolas are made from wood or aluminium and consist of columns that support a roof above it made from rafters and beams. 

At LifestyleGarden®, we know only too well how pergolas can enhance gardens- which is why we stock products which can help you make the most of your outdoor space all year round.

This includes pergolas in two size options and with multiple add ons, meaning we can tailor our offering specifically to each and every client we work with.

Read on to find out more about the benefits of pergolas. 

Extend your living space

Pergolas can effortlessly bring your interior and exterior together, blending together the two domains of your property to extend your living space in a seamless way. By extending the amount of time you spend outdoors, pergolas have the ability to act as an entertainment, socialising and relaxation space that can be catered specifically to your needs.

They can also be combined with other outdoor features such as decking, patios, verandas and more to create a bespoke space that allows you to maximise your time outdoors.

Offer protection from the elements

One of the biggest benefits of pergolas is that they offer great protection against all of the elements that the British weather has to offer. Whether you’re looking to escape the sun’s harsh rays in the summer or shelter from the rain, they offer a great place to remain outdoors without having to worry about what the weather is up to.

Provides privacy


A pergola also offers you privacy so you can relax in your own space without being bothered by anyone else.

Although it is an open structure, you can position it in such a way that you’re kept away from prying eyes- especially if you share low garden fences with neighbours. As well as this, you can add the likes of drapes and latticework to your pergola to keep you shielded, as well as positioning plants around the structure to keep you more immersed with your outdoor environment.

Stylish designs

In addition to all of the functional benefits we’ve discussed, pergolas also offer stunning aesthetics that add a stylish edge to every garden or outdoor space. The range of materials they come in means you’re bound to find an option that suits your unique style, and our aluminium options exude elegance and a contemporary design that is perfect for those looking to add modern products to their space.

They’re also rust-free which means you don’t need to concern yourself with time-consuming maintenance.
