Does the pergola offer protection from rain??? - Hiii!!! I wanted to know if the wisteria offers protection only from sunlight or from rain as well? Thanks :)

Hi Puneet. Like with most plants rainwater will come through the foliage of the wisteria. You'd have to put a pan & gutter system below the pergo structure to keep yourself dry. The wisteria could still go on top but you'd have periodically remove leaves. Also, the feeling under the pergola would be very different.

Hope that helps!

Hi Annette: The chaises and cushions were from Gloster, but I'm fairly certain both are discontinued.

when it comes to decorating a pergola, something really stunning is to use laser cut shading for the top.

how and/or where is the wisteria planted and trained to grow on the pergola? - I have a deck which is about 3 ft off the ground and a pergola built to cover it. I would like to cover the surface of the pergola with wisteria to create the same effect.

Virtual Access Tours
Wisteria and other climbers like Clematis and roses can't ever have their roots dry and hot. The soil should always be cool and moist enough to cake a handful of soil in a dry hand. One trick to create and collect moister from soil condensation is to bury a plastic container in the ground that can chill the surround soil around the roots. Putting the bucket in the ground encourages the roots to grown down for the moister and out away from the trunk and acts as a natural air conditioner. Watering from the surface only encourages plants to grow roots along the surface where they become weak from bugs, disease and drought.

Construction:
Heat a sewing needle with a lighter and pierce three holes in the bottom of the container with three on top. This creates a drip water irrigation that will last for weeks, or days depending on the weather. Plastic paint buckets with lids from one to five gallons, can be had in your local paint shop. The better buckets have screw tops which allow easier access. Trim the bucket off with material that will make it blend in to your architecture and to prevent lifting from seasonal ground water pressure. Add liquid fertilizer to the water bath as needed in the growing season.

Benefits:
Watch your vines propagate with a rage during the peak growing season and stay plush green during hot dry spells. Eliminate ugly standing hoses that distracts from your natural beauty. Maximize your growing time to cover the structure and ensure it stays healthy year round. Marvel at the way your friends try to guess your secrets to good gardening.

Hi, I just wanted to say that this is very nice. I plan on installing a pergola next year and having my wisteria grow over it also.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Susan Stieglitz added this to Pergola
Pergolas can be attached to the house to form a semi-covered patio.
7. European-inspired New Jersey trellis. Like a scene in Provence, the porch outside this New Jersey farmhouse has a distinctly European vibe. The wisteria-draped trellis lets just the right amount of sunlight filter through to the plush lounge chairs.
