A White Malibu Pergola – Pergola Plans
The pergola plans that were used to create this beautiful white pergola in Malibu are available now. The plans are adaptable for size and height and shape. Pergolas with 50 posts have been created using these details and even featured in magazines like Canadian Living and Fine Gardening. Use our plans and details to create beautiful pergolas.
This pergola in Malibu illustrates how a white pergola will show off detail. Shadows accent angles and cuts to give a pergola full glory! We have been building decks and pergolas in the Los Angeles area for more than 10 years. Have our design builders quote your decks and pergolas, or build using our pergola plans.
Planning a Malibu Pergola with our Pergola Plans
Normally Malibu pergolas are planned around the hardscape or conceptualized simultaneously. By keeping the pergola slightly off the patio, planting pockets can be created beneath the trellis screens. Add some flowering vines and your pergola will take on a magazine like quality. These pergola details can be connected to a building. You can step up and down off decks and patios and create a perpendicular offset shape. We tend not to use angles too often, but I am sure you could make that happen as well. We have used pergola plans to create many of our unique pergolas. Find them in the Pergolas Gallery
Staining a Pergola
Stains don’t work so well these days. Since they went to low VOC formulations, durability has suffered. Marine finishes seem to be best these days, but the finishing budget is large! Sealing all 6 sides is your best strategy, however, that has to happen before building. Learn more about finishing wood outdoors here!
