Garden Pergola with LED Lights

A DIY aluminium pergola is a cost-effective way to create a versatile living area in your garden but there are a few things you can do to really make it shine. Read on to discover some of the ways our customers have enhanced their pergolas to make the most of their al-fresco lifestyle.

Add built in electric heaters

You won’t regret adding electric heaters to your DIY pergola! The electric heaters that come with our pergolas blast out heat so you and your loved ones will stay wonderfully cosy and warm even on chillier days. And, as they’re built into the frame of the pergola, you won’t have to struggle with bulky and heavy freestanding heaters or fiddle around with gas canisters either.  

Don’t forget lighting

Never let the sun setting stop your garden party again! By adding our integrated LED lights to your DIY pergola, you’ll create a warming soft glow and beautiful ambiance that not only looks great but provides a practical purpose too. With built-in lighting, you can enjoy your outside space even on those overcast days and continue your al-fresco get together long into the night.  

Roller screens add comfort

One of the most popular accessories our customers add to their DIY aluminium pergolas are roller screens. These clever devices attach discreetly to the structure and have a sheet of robust fabric that can be lowered or raised depending on your needs. They’re perfect for providing even more control over your shade and privacy as well as acting as an effective wind break on breezy days. They can even include windows so you can still see your beautiful garden when they’re lowered.
