The history of Pergolas can be traced back over 3000 years, when they were used in the gardens of the ancient Egyptians, over the entry into the garden. Pergola is derived from the Latin 'pergula" which translates as a "projecting eave" The Italian Renaissance period in the 15th century featured pergolas - "a close walk of boughs" - through which beautiful flowers would be trained and trail. In the 16th century French noblemen sought them for their beauty and prestige.
Previous generations created the pergola uprights from stone and brick, examples of which can still be seen in situ, but modern pergolas are almost universally made from pressure treated timber, and the variety of pergola styles is now astounding.
