There are many ways of creating shade. For this project we chose a natural rough wood pergola. To create shade we also planted 2 Bougainvilleas on the posts. These Bougainvilleas will eventually grow over the top of the Pergola creating natural shade and beautifying this patio. All the rafters, beams, and posts are secured through the concept of bolting and lagging. To finish this project up we coated it with a weather resistant Varnish; preserving the natural beauty of the wood.
