We’ll take you through the different features of the structures available, give you advice on location and answer some common FAQs.
Choosing The Right Style from our Pergola Kits
It goes without saying that planning is key to ensuring you choose the right style of pergola for the space you have available. Take into consideration things such as:
- Will your pergola be a lean-to or free-standing?
- What foundation will your pergola be built on?
- Do you need planning permission for your pergola?
- What is the best location?
Lean-to or free-standing pergola kit?
Grangewood Fencing offers both lean-to and free-standing pergolas. Our lean-to pergolas enable you to expand your living space outdoors, creating an outdoor lounge/dining area attached to the house, ideal for family time. Alternatively, you can create a cosy feature away from the house with our premium freestanding pergola. This option is perfect for creating a private hideaway or a stunning focal feature for entertaining.
What foundation will your pergola kit be built on?
None of our pergola kits require foundations so there is no need to worry about extra digging and materials. However, it is still beneficial to evaluate the placement of the structure to ensure it meets your requirements. Ideally, your pergola should be built on level ground, avoiding low-lying areas where water tends to pool.
You might also think about flooring – are you building on top of concrete slabs? Or perhaps straight onto grass? Grangewood also offers a pergola with decking, which comes in a choice of sizes and finishes to suit any project.
Do I need planning permission for a pergola?
While most pergolas are not considered to be permanent outdoor structures, some townships and municipalities limit the size allowed, so permission is sometimes required. As Grangewood Fencing offers a range of sizes, we always recommend checking for any restrictions before you get started.
What is the best location to build my pergola kit?
Aside from ground considerations, you might also benefit from assessing the surroundings and location of your structure. Do you have any immature trees that may protrude into your space or interfere with the flooring of your pergola as they grow? Does the location provide privacy (if that is your goal)? Is it easily accessible? These are all factors that will affect the end enjoyment of your pergola and are well worth considering.
