Sometimes, simplicity is all you need to add to your yard to transform your outdoor living space. Pergolas are an addition that, while simple in appearance, do a lot to transform the outdoors. The beauty with pergolas lies in their endless design potentials!
Bright Habitats in Edmonton are experts in both landscaping and backyard transformations. They share some creative designs for your new pergola that’ll transform your backyard:
Combine with a deck
Do you already have a deck in your yard? Or can’t decide between a deck and a pergola? Instead of choosing, combine the two! Pergolas provide plenty of shade and style, while a deck gives you that established entertainment space. If you choose a covered pergola, you can always enjoy your outdoor living, come rain or shine. You can also dress up your pergola by hanging fairy lights or sheer curtains for added privacy and décor.
Embrace the Mediterranean theme
Pergolas naturally offer a Mediterranean theme, simply because of their design and beauty. There are a lot of ways to decorate a pergola, but why not embrace its natural theme? The Mediterranean is all about cool earthy tones such as warm browns and golds, with touches of white. Hang light-tan curtains around your pergola for elegance and privacy and choose white and brown outdoor furniture. Add some plants such as shrubs, succulents, and growing vines, and you’ve got a Mediterranean oasis.
Vines and pergolas are a beautiful combination that adds character to your outdoors. Choosing vine plants with edible fruit, though, brings both beauty and flavour to your yard! For the pergola itself, grapevines are a perfect choice. The plant will quickly grow all around your pergola, creating a beautiful shaded environment with vibrant grapes. Around the base of your pergola, add smaller trellises for different vine plants. On these, grow things like tomatoes or beans for colourful and edible pergola garden!

Add some swings
Swings are popular to add to gardens in any case, but adding them to a pergola is a truly perfect combination. They add a change from the classic table and chairs or outdoor seating, but swings are just as fun and relaxing. You can read, enjoy a drink or just be outside and enjoy nature. Instead of adding in a swinging bench, consider individual swinging seats, such as wicker ones. Not only will they take up less space, but the wicker design adds character and complements the wood theme.
