To build a pergola is quite an achievement. How did you get on? Whether simple or elaborate, self-build or pergola kit, we're dying to find out!

  • Was it fun, scary, rewarding?
  • Did you feel a great sense of achievement?
  • Did you have a particularly good tool that you'd like to recommend?
  • What was the best moment of your build, either during or after?
  • Has it made a difference to your garden?
  • Has it made a difference to your life?! Tell us how.
  • Have you been showing all your friends and family? (I know I did!)
  • Do you have some great pictures that you can share?

Writing about your pergola is very easy. Just fill in the boxes below and you're off!

Your story could be on a page of its own very shortly.

The attached lean-to pergola above was built by John.  What a fantastic job he's made of it!
