If you are like many homeowners, you have a fence that runs across your backyard. Fences are a great addition to any outdoor space for a number of good reasons. For example, fences give you added privacy from nosey neighbors, and they keep your dogs in your yard. Unfortunately, however, there are quite a few fences around that don’t look as good as they should. Of course, you could have your old fence torn down and have a new one installed, but there are better options. For example, you could have a pergola topper installed on your existing fence. And why would you want to have a pergola fence topper installed? Well, here are a few reasons why this is a viable and intelligent idea.
What is a Pergola?
A pergola is an outdoor structure with supporting columns and a roofing grid that includes rafters or beams. The roof is often left open, but it can be closed as well, depending on the homeowner’s preference. And though pergolas can be built free-standing, they can also be attached to your house or garage. Oh, and they can also be attached to your fence.
The pergola dates way back to the Italian Renaissance, but the structure has changed significantly over the years. Although there are several other outdoor structures that you can have installed, including gazebos and arbors, they are all different in structure and overall looks. Visually, pergolas are large and striking when they are spotted by your neighbors, and they come in many designs, styles, and colors. In fact, they are totally customizable. But pergolas are much more than just eye candy for your outdoor space.
The purpose of a pergola is to enhance your backyard. At the core, a pergola will give you a little privacy and protect you from the elements. You can add curtains to your pergola to increase your privacy, and you can add a rooking cover for more protection from the elements. In addition, a pergola is a perfect shelter to house your hot tub or patio in general.
Adding a Pergola Topper to Your Fence
By adding a pergola topper to your fence, you are gaining the benefits of a free-standing pergola. A pergola topper will give you added privacy from your neighbors and other outsiders. A pergola topper will also make your fence more aesthetically pleasing. Also, a pergola topper will keep your dog from jumping over the fence. Finally, that dated fence you have been staring at for years becomes an eye-catching feature when a pergola topper is added to it.
While pergolas have been becoming increasingly popular among homeowners, you still don’t see a whole lot of pergola toppers on fences. That means that by having a pergola topper installed on your fence, you will be the envy of the neighborhood.
