In recent years, pergolas have experienced a resurgence in their popularity. Although they were popular during the 80s and 90s, they fell out of favor with people. It was very rare to see a pergola-related classified ad or article in newspapers or home improvement magazines and most people were only vaguely aware that such a garden structure existed. However, few individuals were actually willing to put one up in their garden. During that time, greenhouses and masonry were the predominant features that everyone wanted in their gardens. However, because of the Internet, pergolas have recently gained momentum once again. People are coming to realize that in today’s fast-paced society, owning a pergola is both a convenience and a privilege. Below, we’ve listed why pergolas are the best embodiment of today’s society that you can place in your garden for the ultimate synergy of old and new.
Fast-paced pergolas for busy people
Nowadays, a lot of people are willing to invest too much time in a garden project. They feel that they will be much better off investing this valuable time in something else, even if that something else may later prove to be excessive or unnecessary. People want to do things their way, rather than have to wait things out. Patience is hard to come by, and everyone likes things in bite sized packages which they can easily assimilate into their lives. Pergolas are excellent for that. Because they are so easy to put up, you not have to worry about hours lost in their installation. It’s one less thing to have to worry about on your mind, which is why they recently gained this new-found popularity.
Landscaping on a budget with pergolas
Similarly, pergolas are also very forgiving when it comes to the prices that you need in order to either buy a ready-made pergola kit or put one together yourself. If you already have the sort of tooling required to make one, you can get one done in record time. On the other hand, even if you do not have the necessary tools and will simply be putting together a kit which is purchased from a local Home Depot or online, you still get the benefits of the reduced pricing in pergolas alongside the added benefit of their being extremely quick to set up, even more so than the pergolas that you need to put together yourself.
