Garden Pergola Design and Hot Tub
Hi Susan......Probably over a year ago I asked for your help in regards to hot tub placement ideas....well proud to say that the job is now complete with a beautiful garden pergola design built over it(by moi)....Question I have is what color ideas would you recommend that we stain the pergola??? My wife and I were thinking a chocolate brown stain...but we're not too sure....could use another input and someone who isn't close to agree so easily....Thanks for your help
Congratulations. It looks great and glad I was able to be of help.
Your garden pergola looks very, very nice. As far as the stain color goes, I can see a brown color, but perhaps with some red in it so that it would tie in to the brick on your house. Get some stain samples and bring them home. Take a look at them both against the pergola and also up against the house. The pergola stain color does not have to be a dead ringer...just a nice blend. Tend more towards the brown rather than the red.
There is a lot that can be done with garden pergola designs. Since yours now is adjacent to your outdoor patio, you might consider creating a planting bed around it to hug it in, making the hot tub cozier, and integrating it with the patio.
"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant . You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it !!! "
