DIY Pergolas – Easy and Inexpensive to Build

It won’t take you long to see that building your own pergola is going to cost you only a fraction of the price of buying one. You have the option of buying a pergola kit if you are not inclined to cut your own wood and want to prevent any costly mistakes, but for the biggest savings, you should consider working from plans.  The first step is to find the right pergola designs for your garden and home.  There are various garden pergolas to choose from and once you have found the right pergola plans it is time to get organised.



You will need to enlist the help of a friend as four hands will be required in order to set up your pergola posts and beams.  It will generally take you three to four days to complete your structure, so a long weekend could be an ideal time to begin your build.  You’ll want to source the best possible quality wood and should consider cedar or red wood stain.  The main reason for this is that cedar and redwood have a natural resistance to UVA, mould and rot.  Because of this, your maintenance costs will be dramatically less and you will definitely recover your initial investment over time.

DIY Pergolas

Read through your plans completely and see exactly what tools you are going to need for the entire project.  A good set of plans will include a materials list as well as a complete list of all the tools you will need to complete your project.  The basic tools will include hammer and nails, screws, nuts and bolts as well as an electrical drill and circular saw.

The location of your pergola is also really important.  You want it to enhance the overall look of your yard and to blend into the landscape.  You could incorporate arbores or trellises or could decide to build your pergola over your deck to offer shade and protection. Other features to consider may include a fire pit or a fireplace, a brick BBQ or a fountain.

Whatever your preference, getting involved in a woodworking project to build your own wooden pergola is both rewarding for the ability to create something beautiful as well as increasing the value of your home.
