Nik & Helen's Corner Pergola

We built our pergola using the corner pergola plans, just adjusted the measurements to fit the space. As our ground is full of massive rocks we couldn't use ground spikes so had to use concrete-in anchor fixings, which meant there was no room for adjustment once they were in! To make sure the post angles would all be correct we built a temporary frame on the ground and fitted the posts at the correct angles inside - it worked a treat! We're delighted with our lovely new pergola!

Just Amazing!

Helen and Nik, I feel so proud of you! What an extraordinarily beautiful pergola and seating area you have created.

Thank you so much for sending in the photos. It will undoubtedly be a source of great inspiration for fellow builders.

What a good idea to use the frame. You can tell everything has been placed with precision. I will use that one, for sure. Great ideas are always very welcome.

Your pergola shows so well how a corner of the garden can be transformed into the most stunning and welcoming space. I love it!
