Pergola on deck
January 13, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Has anyone added a pergola on an existing deck? Ours deck gets lots and lots of wind so it has to be very sturdy. I'm wondering if I buy one of those DIY kits would that work? Trying to keep the cost down as much as possible. We can't even use our deck in the summer it's so hot.
Any other shade solutions anyone has? That can be done without spending a fortune?
Would love to pictures ;)

Your pagoda structure could be simple timber frame. You can find light filtering fabric in the landscape departments of home improvement stores. This mesh fabric can easily be installed into your pagoda frame.

It is possible, just need cut the opening for the posts on the deck in order for a separate structure for the pergola.
