How to build a pergola

Pergola.jpg

A pergola can help make an outdoor entertainment area something really special. 

 

A pergola can help define your outdoor space. More importantly, combined with a deciduous climber like an ornamental grape or wisteria, a pergola can help provide shade in summer while ensuring you still get plenty of winter light into the home. 

 

Bunnings has a series of videos about how to build a pergola, which includes building the pergola frame and constructing the roof.

 

You might also be inspired by what other Bunnings Workshop members have been able to achieve, including a pergola with a built-in mist system by @kel, an outdoor entertainment area by @raymao268 and a pergola for the side of the house by @Allan72.

 

Some more recent fantastic community projects include the new pergola build by @Caseyd and the new pergola by the @DIYgals, which you can see go up in a time-lapse video. 

 

Let us know if you need a hand with your pergola project. Bunnings Workshop community members would be more than happy to help.
