It goes without saying that shady living is not something most people seek. In fact, it’s a safe bet that those involved in shady deals are not the most successful at winning friends and influencing people. But like so many things in life, there are times when breaking the rules actually pay off – like sunny days!
Shady living in your own backyard can turn the hottest day into a pleasant outing. Instead of sitting outside and trying to battle the sun streaks in your eyes, glares on your computer or phone screens, and the dripping sweat from your brow as the sun beats down on you, take a step on the shady side of your yard with a pergola, or two.
Pergolas come in all sizes and shapes, even colors, and create perfect places for shady living just outside your door. Shade on your patio, deck, or on the grass next to your rose garden. Wherever it might be, pergolas create the perfect amount of shade to enable you to actually live outside instead of staying inside all summer to avoid sun stroke, distracting glares, and too much heat.
The trick to planning for pergolas is to think ahead of the areas you want to create for escaping the sun. Need to shade a large patio area? Make sure you have the right size to throw shade as big as the table on your deck so all dinners are comfortable, and that it is situated to block the sun at the hours most needed.
As you can see, it’s easy to prepare for the hot summers ahead with beautiful pergolas to complement your home and outdoor living style.
