Timber pergola with ventilated gable roof

With mild springs and autumns and hot summers, a pergola is a perfect addition to almost any Melbourne home.

Whether you leave the roof of your pergola uncovered, partly covered, covered by shade cloth or draped by a climbing plant, a pergola can be an extremely valuable and attractive asset. A well-designed and beautifully constructed pergola will be a fantastic spot to enjoy barbecues, alfresco brunches and a relaxing cuppa on a weekend. In addition, it will also add significant value to your house, flat or unit.

Before you take the plunge and invest in a pergola for your Melbourne home, it’s a good idea to sit down and consider a few decisions, such as:


  • Where will you locate the pergola? A pergola is usually built on the ground but can be installed over a balcony. In addition, a pergola can be attached to a home or be freestanding. It all depends on your needs and the layout of your home.
  • What materials do you want to use in your pergola? Timber is an obvious choice as it’s great looking and economical to use. However, if you want a pergola that’s virtually maintenance-free and will last a lifetime, aluminium could be better for you.
  • Make sure you consider the style of your Melbourne home. When installed, a pergola should match your home perfectly.
