Pergola Obsession

I seem to have a growing obsession with pergolas.

Today we were back in one of our favourite gardens at Gravetye Manor rebuilding some old areas of drystone wall just next to this lovely tall pergola.

I find myself constantly drawn to the details and construction choices people have made in gardens and pergola are a particularly good place to see them.

You can see quite clearly which joints people have chosen to use and dimensions of timber. I often choose a larger post with a thinner beam but hear you can see they have gone with the same size and just sat it on top.

I tend to find myself trying to over complicate some areas of design and I rather like the simplicity of this .

One to try in the future.
