Pergolas, made from timber uprights with crossbeams and laterals at the top, form an open-topped canopy for an outdoor eating area or walkway. When planted with vigorous, flowering climbers they make attractive structures in the garden, offering height, shade and additional colour.
Timing: Construct a pergola in winter, ready for spring planting
