With so many options available, it can be overwhelming trying to choose the best one for your needs. That's why we've put together this buyer's guide to help you upgrade your backyard with the best premium pergolas. From materials and styles to size and price, we'll cover everything you need to know to make an informed decision and create a backyard oasis that you'll love to spend time in. So, let's dive in and explore the world of premium pergolas!

Benefits of having a pergola in your garden

Pergolas offer a variety of benefits for homeowners looking to upgrade their outdoor living spaces. Here are just a few of the advantages of adding a pergola to your backyard:

Provides shade and protection from the elements

One of the primary benefits of a pergola is the shade and protection it provides from the sun and the elements. With a pergola, you can enjoy your backyard even on the hottest days while staying cool in the shade. Additionally, a pergola can protect your outdoor furniture and other belongings from rain, snow, and other weather-related damage. 

The weatherproof side screens we offer add to the cover and shade you are able to get from the elements. The screens are slightly transparent allowing light to shine through but will protect you from UV rays. Screens are built into spring-loaded runners that will allow you to pull down your screen to the desired height.

The built-in drainage system means that if the weather changes, just close the pergola's louvred roof to make the area completely weatherproof, any rainwater that lands on the louvres will flow into the guttering channels and drain through the legs to the ground.


Adds a stylish and functional element to your backyard design


ATM Living' Pergolas come in a variety of styles and designs – including LED lights, sides and motorised louvred roofs – making them a versatile addition to any backyard. We offer sizes 3x3m, 3x4m and 3x6m.

Your Pergola can be used as a stand-alone structure or it can be connected to an existing building as a stylish extension to your home. It can be used as an al fresco dining space, a sheltered area for lounge garden furniture or hot tubs. Pergolas make excellent covers also for an outdoor kitchen or bar area and many more applications.


Increases your home's value

Adding a pergola to your backyard can increase your home's value and appeal to potential buyers. A well-designed and well-maintained pergola can be a selling point for your home, especially if it's located in an area with a lot of outdoor living space. No planning permission is required to fit a pergola.

Factors to consider when choosing a premium pergola

When choosing a premium pergola for your backyard, there are several factors to consider. Here are a few things to keep in mind:


The size of your pergola will depend on the size of your backyard and the intended use of the space. If you're planning on using your pergola for outdoor dining, you'll need a larger size than if you're just looking for a cosy spot to relax. 

Most pergolas are 2.5 metres tall, which allows for seamless fitting against an existing structure with a door to the garden or backyard.


Pergolas come in a variety of styles, with built-in LED lighting and side panels. Consider the overall design of your backyard and choose a pergola that complements your existing aesthetic.


Consider your budget when choosing a pergola and factor in any additional costs such as installation. We offer professional installation services across mainland UK, including assembly (assembly details: 3x3m, 3x4m, 3x6m) and bolting to ground or porcelain.


Pergolas are a popular choice for homeowners looking to upgrade their outdoor living spaces. With a variety of materials, styles, and designs to choose from, there's a pergola to fit any backyard design. When choosing a premium pergola, consider factors such as size, materials, style, and budget. With the right pergola, you can create a backyard oasis that you'll love to spend time in for years to come.
