With family coming around more and more for the holiday season, you’ll want a place to entertain other than the kitchen table. Our South Georgia weather ensures that it isn’t too cold for a little backyard time this late in the year but you might need a covering like a pergola. For those of you that don’t know, a pergola is like an extended arbor, like a covered passageway.
To make the most out of your pergola, we’ve gathered a few ways to make it your own.
With such a great shady area, you’ll need a place to sit. Lawn furniture, wicker seating, or just some comfy chairs would make this space both more inviting and useful. Take a book out here to read, bring the crew to sit around and talk, or just spend some time enjoying nature.
Add an end table, a few potted plants, and a fire pit so that your backyard is ready and relaxing at any time. Hang plants from the rafters, string lights along the posts, or paint it a fun color to blend in with your magnificent backyard. Match it to your wood fence or let it stand alone from your other backyard features.
With a fire pit, a TV or movie screen, or an outdoor kitchen, your guests will love to sit under the pergola with you. Just to get them out of the house, away from the kitchen, or just as a way to gather everyone in one large place, this addition will be perfect if you love inviting the neighbors over, constantly have family coming in from out of town, or just like throwing backyard parties.
