The pergola, or light canopy structure, is an eye-catcher in the garden, in the shade of which it is nice to spend sunny days and enjoy the dim evenings of August. So it’s no wonder that different pergolas are one of the biggest patio trends of recent years.
Do you need inspiration to design your own yard pergola or do you just want to admire the atmospheric canopies? We put together four lovely pergolas where the eye rests.
1. Lanterns complete the pergola that stumbles on the roof terrace
Mikon and Jannin the family enjoys doing things together outdoors. At the heart of their home are living areas and a roof terrace with summer kitchens.
The large roof terrace is partly covered with a pergola with darkly painted beams hanging from metal grilles on which atmospheric lanterns can be hung.
2. The pergola is a sheltered cooling place on the side of the barrel sauna
Heidi and Veli-Matti built their inventive, beach house-style ensemble from a barrel sauna, a lot and a pergola. The pergola that rises in connection with the sauna is positioned so that the evening sun shines on it.
The walls of the light pergola are covered with sloping ribs, and it was easy and quick to implement. The grilles of the walls provide protection from the eyes of the neighbors. As the pergola is covered, a carpet can be spread on the terrace.
3. The green canopy is the perfect place for a garden party
Inkola Karinin the centerpiece of the yard is a pergola covered with wild wine. Under the lush canopy, the whole large family can gather and enjoy being together.

4. The gardener’s pergola wonderfully takes up space
Gardener Eija Lehtinen reminds that when designing a terrace or pergola, you should always remember to make it large enough. Eija’s own courtyard terrace was built by her husband Timo.
The terrace measures 7 x 5 meters and the height of the pergola structure is 2.4 meters. The floor is a graphite gray thermal wood composite, which was obtained in full length without extensions.
Many forms of pergola
An important part of the classical pergola are various vines. Along the columns and beams of the pergola pass wild wine, coil, vines and curls. The choice of plants can affect the atmosphere the pergola creates around it.
A lightweight pergola can be built from many different materials, such as wood, steel or aluminum. The frame-like structure can also be covered so that it remains sheltered from rain and sun toast. Glazed pergolas have also grown in popularity in recent years.
A lightweight structure does not usually require sturdy foundations around it. Before building a pergola, you should find out from your local municipality’s building inspectorate whether you need a building permit.
