If your pergola is deigned in a way to provide shade and privacy they can provide more space to utilize with family or friends. You can have tables and chairs located under the structure creating a awesome space to hang out with your people.
Components of Pergolas
Foundations and Posts
The foundations are the areas where the main support posts are attached or secured to the ground. The foundations and post are responsible for keeping the structure grounded and sturdy. It is essential that these components are built properly given the important function they serve.
The support beams run along the sides of the pergola and are secured to the tops of the foundation posts. Depending on the design of the pergola there can be either two support beams or four. The purpose of these beams is to support the other wood that is used for for shade that it attached horizontally to the support beams.
The top beams are secured on top of the support beams. Depending on the amount of shade and privacy you want will depend on how many top beams you will have on your pergola.
