If you’re thinking of building a new outdoor living area for your Melbourne home, you may have wondered what the difference is between a pergola or patio, or are they simply one and the same?
Strictly speaking there is a difference and that’s simply that a pergola doesn’t have a roof while a patio does. Think of a traditional Melbourne pergola and you’d be picturing an outside structure with posts and beams, and a deciduous climber growing on it to form a canopy and provide protection from the sun and light rain. Then, during the cooler months, with the deciduous climber bare of leaves, the winter sun could shine in, adding some much needed warmth.
These days, of course, we’re a little more liberal about whether to call the outdoor living area for your Melbourne home a pergola or patio. Roof, no roof, deciduous climber, no deciduous climber; whether you call it a pergola or patio it’s up to you. It’s a bit like the pronunciation of ‘derby’, ‘tomato’ and ‘oregano’, depending on where you live.
So, for the sake of this post, let’s just call it a pergola. After all, it doesn’t matter what you call it as long as it does exactly what you need it to do. Which is a great beginning to our tips on how to build the best Melbourne pergola for you:
