Advtantages of a metal pergola system

metal pergola can make a practical as well as stylish addition to your garden. As well as providing shade and shelter from inclement British weather, they have an impressive lifespan and are easy to maintain once installed. Rotating louvres provide shade from the sun as well as protection from the rain and with a selection of blinds, screens, heating and lighting options, you really can create a usable outdoor room.

Metal pergola trends

Outdoor structures have become increasingly popular, especially since 2020 when the global Covid pandemic put outdoor entertaining on the agenda for much of the population. With more and more of us investing in our outdoor space, including kitchens, ovens and BBQs, the trend towards metal pergolas is here to stay.

Creating the perfect garden

A pergola or gazebo is an ideal structure for providing shelter from the elements, shade from the sun, adding structure to a garden and creating a canopy over a patio to safely house garden furniture for outdoor dining. Whether you’re looking to transform your patio with a durable roof so you can use it all year, or just making a style statement, our low price and excellent delivery times help to make us the best choice for your pergola.

Quality manufacturing

Our suppliers use the latest modern materials and fabrication methods to manufacture quality gazebo structures in a range of colours and styles. Products are delivered and assembled by experienced fitters who make sure that all of our customers experience the best possible delivery and service.

What garden furniture do you recommend with a metal pergola?

To enhance the beauty of a sturdy pergola model, we would advise that furniture provides a contrast in style, colours or materials. For example, you may choose a basket or rattan finish for chairs and beds rather than more metal. This will provide interest and variety.

There are plenty of deals available for furniture purchase, particularly in an end of season sale, and you may well find that you can get a discount off your first order or pay over a longer period. Lots of companies in the UK will deliver your furniture for free and offer additional services if you are eligible, some may also assemble your items for you.
