Pergola with Turned Columns
A Kitchener Ontario Pergola featuring low voltage lighting and large laminated beams. Finished with solid stain for durability. This pergola with turned columns was designed to blend with the home and be installed on an existing concrete patio. (Footings were poured prior to the patio) We matched the column profile to those existing on the home. Landscape Lighting design and installation was by Clint Gage, and the pergola design was by Lawrence Winterburn.
Support Brackets had to be manufactured to support this pergola upon the existing footings. It is always better to plan the pergola prior to landscaping and patios being installed so that the pergola builders have what they need without upcharges. The turned columns are structural hybrids, part fiberglass, part composite. We use them for some larger post projects due to their dimensional stability and compressive strength when designing pergolas without diagonal bracing.
We ran the wiring through the pergola while building so that they would not be obvious and for moisture protection. White low voltage fixtures were chosen to match the pergola and be unobtrusive. Casting the lights downward give a nice subtle lighting effect without it looking overdone. Half posts were fitted to the wall to help it blend with the home
