Once you have the basic layout in mind, it is time to acquire the necessary materials and tools for construction and setting up your pergola pergola. While selecting materials for the pergola, contemplate whether your garden has a suitable layout to support the installation of the various components of the pergola. While installing the pergola components such as the posts, joists, trusses, beams, trellis, and vines, ensure that they are fitted to the walls of the garden in such a way as to form an aesthetically pleasing structure in the garden.
Since the intention of constructing a pergola is primarily for the purpose of adding shade to the garden, you would require a specific type of wood for this purpose. Cedar, which is an aromatic wood, tends to diffuse a cool and relaxing ambience in the garden setting. Another option is bamboo, which is also a light-toned wood. However, timbers like cedar, fir and spruce are commonly used because they lend a very warm and cosy feeling in the outdoor setting of the garden. Before finalizing the type of wood to be used, try to find out if there are already existing wooden components in the garden which has a similar shade and tone to the new wood you intend to install.
