Enjoy the Sun and Stars with a Pergola from Pleasant Run

Article was published on: 12/14/20

Soak in the summer sun or enjoy the beauty of a star-filled night from your Amish pergola in New Jersey from Pleasant Run Structures.

Pergolas don’t have a solid roof so you can enjoy filtered sunshine when the weather is warm, or sit beneath the stars at night and enjoy a cool drink, a nice meal, or the company of family and friends.

Your backyard pergola can be as elaborate or simple as you desire. Add layered wooden beams or joists to make your Amish pergola in New Jersey from Pleasant Run Structures look like a grand outdoor living area where people will naturally congregate if they’re outside.

Or, if you’re on a budget, Pleasant Run Structures can design an Amish pergola in New Jersey to fit a specific price range that will provide you with the outdoor gathering area you want while keeping construction costs to a minimum. All a homeowner has to do is give our design team at Pleasant Run Structures the go-ahead to get started.

Pleasant Run Structures has been building wood pergolas and other outdoor structures (pavilions, sheds, garages, livestock barns) for years at our two New Jersey locations in Flemington, NJ, and Parsippany, NJ. Both locations have outdoor showrooms where customers can browse and take a look at the high-quality pergola designs that are on display.

When you’ve decided what type of design you want your Amish pergola in New Jersey to be, you’ll sit down with a member of our design team and work out the specifics. We’ll work with you to determine the size of your structure, the materials you will use for the overhead cross beams, and any other amenities that will be included.

Depending on the size of the overhead cross beams that are used, your Amish pergola in New Jersey can include such enhancements as ceiling fans, lights, or large hooks and supports for hanging plants and wind chimes. If you’re considering a ceiling fan or lighting, be sure to budget for an electrician to provide power to the outdoor living space.

There are other ways to make your pergola a special outdoor living area. Here’s just a few.

  • Shade without a roof: You want to enjoy the sun but need some cover too. Draping fabric from the overhead cross beams will provide the shade you need and create a design element as well. Attach the drapes to runners so you can follow the movement of the sun.
  • Plants to keep the area green: Vines and climbing plants can flourish beneath the filtered sun of a pergola. Strategically place lattice or wire to encourage vines to grow tall and provide shade. Hanging plants will also make your pergola a more welcoming area for guests.
  • Light up the place: As mentioned previously, lighting can really add some allure to you pergola. If expensive lighting isn’t an option, stringing lights around the outside of the structure can be inexpensive, but provide a nice touch.

Don’t wait any longer to add some interest to your yard. Call Pleasant Run Structures today at 908.237.1325 to speak to one of our design specialists.
