    • How to Install Sunjoy Outdoor Pergola to Any Surface?

    Proper installation of a pergola or gazebo will keep its shape intact, ensuring that the posts will not move over time for long-term safety and stability. A good installation will make the pergola or gazebo stand the test longer.

    A pergola must be firmly anchored to the ground for a number of reasons. Chief among them is safety. A poorly anchored pergola is at risk of being moved by strong winds if there is a canopy or covering that increases the pergola's wind load during storms or high winds. 🍃

    The second is to ensure the long-term stability of the pergola to maintain its shape of the pergola. Over time, wooden structures bend or twist to some extent. But with proper anchoring, your pergola can keep its shape for years.

  • Install a Pergola to a lawn Surface
  • Installed on a soft lawn, since the lawn is softer, it is relatively easy to install.

    When installing, Lift the base cover, then secure the pergola on the ground with stakes Φ8*180 through the base.

    It can be installed on the lawn with our matching accessories.🌼

  • Install a Pergola to Wood and Concrete Surface 
  • Now comes the part that might confuse you, how to install the pergola on a concrete surface. Fortunately, attaching the pergola to the wood surface, paving stones, patio stones, or even concrete works the same way.❤️❤️

    Installing a pergola on concrete doesn't have to be a daunting task. This becomes very easy if you have the right equipment at the ready, like a drill, and bolts. You will need to buy these accessories separately at your local hardware store.👏
    Use Bolt down the legs to secure a pergola to concrete. If you decide to use bolts, you will need a drill to help you out. Sunjoy pergolas already have holes in their feet, simply set up your pergola, mark the point on the concrete surface where the bolt should go, and start drilling. Once done you can secure the pergola to the concrete surface with the bolt. Repeat this procedure for all 4 legs. Please confirm the position you want, once drilled, it cannot be changed.🌟

  • Lights Decorate Pergola and Light Up the night

  • Choose Suitable Outdoor Furniture to Enjoy Your Pergola 
  • How to enjoy the pergola? One of the best ways is to sit under the pergola and enjoy the fresh air and breeze of the backyard. When choosing the right outdoor furniture for your pergola, what you must consider is what kind of scene you need it to be used for. Is it a place where you entertain family and friends or is it your private place away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life?🌼🍃

    When gathering outdoors under a pergola, adding some outdoor furniture can make your pergola the perfect place to dine al fresco. Such as outdoor kitchens, dining tables, and more interestingly, installing a fire pit or small outdoor grill allows you to cook outdoors in your backyard.🔥
