Amazing Ways to Illuminate your Pergola

Don’t let a dark or dimly lit pergola stop your outdoor summer fun once the sun goes down. During those long summer months, when company stays throughout the night, you need to make sure you have the best lighting to keep the party going. We’ve compiled a list of the top four best ways to illuminate your pergola to keep the party going well into the night.
Built in Lights We understand that adding a pergola to your backyard is a big decision. Do it right from the start by having built in lights installed directly into your pergola.

Our Favorite Privacy Solutions for your Backyard

Summer is your time the best time to hang out and spend time with the people you love. Making sure your backyard is quiet and free of prying eyes is a must. We found the best solutions to create privacy in your backyard so you can enjoy the time with your family and friends while maintaining your privacy.
Fountains: Natural Zen Adding a fountain to your backyard is a great way to keep out the peeping toms, while maintaining a natural and organic look. As an additional bonus, adding a fountain creates a white-noise effect, masking out unwanted external noises. With a wide range of variety, styles, and prices, there is a choice of fountain for every home style from east to west.
Fences and Walls When it comes to privacy, low-hanging fruit options are fences or makeshift walls. Putting up a fence or wall allows you to enclose your backyard from neighbors, strangers, and animals (both domestic and wild).

Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola

Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.
There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use. Research has shown that because of its lightweight, soft, and extremely durable weave, Olefin does not fade and is sure to last.
Providing Shade from the Sun Sitting outside in the summer heat can be tiring. Adding modern curtains to your pergola will keep you safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Not only is this perfect for a quiet r…

In North Eastern states such as New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, it’s safe to say that the only opportunity you have to enjoy your outdoor living space is between May and September.

However, you don’t have to settle for low-quality furniture and décor because of it. We compiled a list of our favorite outdoor furniture to give your outdoor space a design upgrade on a budget, so you don’t overextend and over-spend in preparation for this coming summer season.
