3 Reasons to Install a Pergola This Spring

Consider having a pergola installed this spring!

Though the first day of spring in the mid-Atlantic brought with it a blizzard, the snow will soon melt and it will be warm before you know it. As we stretch our legs and wander outside from our winter hibernation, we will spend more and more time in our backyards. Backyards are perfect for entertaining our friends and families, whether we are grilling burgers and hot dogs or having a glass of wine by the fire pit. Are you looking for a new spring project? Adding a pergola to your beautiful backyard can elevate your space to make it look elegant, while also adding yet another living space to your property.

Enjoy Your Outdoor Space

Installation of a pergola can allow you to find yet another way to better enjoy your backyard or outdoor space. If you do not have a comfortable sitting area in our backyard, pergolas serve as a great structure to house stylish outdoor furniture. The structure of the pergola itself is great for hanging some string lights or some mounted light fixtures, so you can enjoy your space in the evening when the sun goes down. Since spring nights can get a bit chilly, think about building a firepit next to your pergola to warm yourselves up. That way, you do not have to move the party inside.

Let Your Green Thumb Shine

Another great way to utilize a pergola is to garden around it. Adding spring annuals is a great way to liven up any space, whether they be pansies, marigolds, or bleeding hearts. Use the structure of the pergola itself as support for climbing ivy or rose vines. You can mount potted plants onto the pillars of the pergola and fill them with whatever you like. Turn your pergola into the center of a lush vegetable garden, or just plant some herbs on the periphery. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination.

Increase Your Property Value

Not only will a pergola add beauty and creativity to your home and property, but it will also be sure to markedly increase your property value. It may not seem like it, but the addition of a pergola basically increases your home’s footprint, even though it is outside. Outdoor living spaces are in demand, as they can be used almost all year round. A pergola will give you a special edge over other properties that do not have nice outdoor living spaces, which can make a big difference if you decide to sell your home sometime in the future.
