The pergola is a structure formed by a system of modular beams. Among the most common materials are wood, steel, iron, concrete and bamboo. The latter, by the way, is the ideal to decorate the environment in a more rustic, airy beach.
Because it is a widely used item in architecture - especially for shading the open spaces - the bamboo pergola purposely creates an unfinished effect. This particularity is due to its positioning side by side since it can not completely seal the cover, thus forming an entrance space for natural lighting.
Such a pergola model has a lower cost when compared to wood. A good supplier makes all the difference in the project because the quality of the coverage is similar to the traditional pergolas. Therefore, search for resistant materials and good condition to have no problem in the execution of the project. Remembering that the price of the square of the bamboo can vary between $ 100.00 to $ 200.00.
Bamboo is a lightweight material, so it needs to be installed in a firm place where the flooring is already concrete or woody. The number of columns follows the size of the structure. The most usual models require four pillars. If the area is wide, a greater number of pillars is required to maintain its support.
Among the care to keep your pergola always in good condition are: paint regularly, pass a sealer to prevent cracking and varnish it to give a more beautiful appearance.

How to make a bamboo pergola?
To make a bamboo pergola, you should plan and layout the project well before putting it into practice. This is not a simple task, but in this way, one can save on the cost of labor.
Local : take into account the location that will receive the pergola. They may have supporting pillars or be supported on one or two nearby walls. If you need the abutments, your base must be rigid, as it is a light material.
Layout : Draw your pergola setting exactly where your pillars should stand. The minimum quantity for a small, square shaped pergola is 4 pillars. If the size is larger and rectangular, you should consider using a greater number of pillars to ensure lift.
Fixing the abutments : To install the pillars, one must make a hole with at least 20 centimeters and 12 inches of diameter below the ground. The gravel can be used before placing the pillar to give more sustainability. After that you should drill the hole and wait for it to dry, which can take more than 1 day depending on the weather conditions.
It is possible to use another structure of pillars for the pergolado, without being of bamboo. It can be made with metal, iron, concrete or other material that guarantees the support.
Upper structure : Before placing the transverse bamboo, the structure must have a support beam connecting the pilasters. To fix, you must use screws and nails, which prevents any kind of scrolling. The bamboos at the top may be thinner and the spacing between them depends on your taste. You can use string lanyards for a special touch.
