Corner Pergola Kits

A corner pergola kit is an ideal compromise between building your own and having a contractor come and build one for you. With a manufactured pergola, all the cutting, notching and drilling is done for you. And they will supply all the correct bolts and screws too!

You'll still be putting it all together, but it will be much quicker and, if you're not too confident with measuring, drilling and sawing, it's less likely that you'll make mistakes.

It will still be possible to grow beautiful climbing plants up your pergola. Some kits include attached trellis panels. Others will leave the posts as supports.

Pergola Kit Choices

Let's take a look at some of the kits that are available.

Notice how some are placed on grass, others on paving slabs, one uses gravel as a base and another uses decking to give a very attractive finish.

All work well, although, myself, I would tend to opt for a rigid material such as paving or decking, as it is much easier to stand furniture on.

Grass and gravel are indeed a cheaper option but you will find that chair, table and lounger legs will sink in, causing the furniture to tilt slightly. If you're not intending to use furniture with legs on the area or a simple seat, then you should be fine.
