What are pergolas and arbours?

Generally the two words are used interchangeably although there are different definitions. They are both out door structures which are used for shelter and as lovely features. The image below shows a pergola used for

Pergolas have wooden supporting legs and a roof which is either open or covered depending on what it is used for and the weather. Pergolas are sometimes attached to buildings and can be used as a kind of extension with open sides.

Arbours are typically free standing structures with decorative wooden features and at least some closed sides. They are available in wood, composite and metal materials.

Both pergolas and arbours are available off the shelf in most garden stores.


Pergolas and arbours as garden features

Pergolas and arbours are commonly used as both functional and aesthetic features. When you are considering whether to get a pergola or an arbour think about the impact you want it to have.

Here are some things to consider when opting for a garden structure:

  1. If you have a smaller garden then a large feature like this could look out of place. For larger gardens you need to decide if you want it to be focal point or more discrete.
  2.  Consider sunlight and if it will block it our or catch it?
  3. If you live in the UK you are going to get some rain. If you want to use it when its raining consider how exposed you could be.
  4. The materials you use will impact the life span of the feature. Soft wood will look great but needs treating regularly and cant be expected to last more than 10 years. For long lasting pergolas consider composite.
