Forest 8 x 8 ft Ultima Pergola Kit

(4.8) Based on 56 Reviews

Description

Traditionally styled, the ultima wooden pergola kit 2.4 x 2.4m from Forest will be a sturdy and handsome addition to your garden.

Smooth planed timber looks so attractive and will appear even more decorative when covered with colourful climbing plants that can easily be planted at the base of the uprights.

As you walk through the pergola on a summer's evening or sit during the day in its shade perhaps with friends, the air will be filled with scent, adding to the pleasure and enjoyment of relaxing in beautiful surroundings.

What more can you ask for to enhance your garden? A structure that is notable in design, colourful in appearance, and with an undoubted impressive presence.

Bought one of these for patio under tree

Bought one of these - as well as 2 x 5mm - 1200 x 2.4 polycarbonate sheets - from another supplier - to provide cover from birds and pine needles, etc. on our existing paved patio. Also bought 4 times optional the "strongly" recommended metal post supports. Delivery was delayed as guys from forest posted photos of another delivery against our order. Thankfully the customer support team came to our rescue :-)

Melanie Asked:

Could this pergola be bolted into composite decking?

We Replied:

Dear Melanie Thank you for your question. It could be done, but we couldn't personally recommend it as we do not have any experience doing this ourselves and so would not know how composite decking would hold up during high wind conditions. We generally recommend attaching it to a patio, slabbed or concrete area with bolt down feet, or spiked feet to insert into soft ground, grass and soil. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren

terry Asked:

Can this pergola be free standing or must it be fixed to the ground?

We Replied:

Dear Terry Thank you for your question. Due to the weight of the product it can be generally left free-standing, however this depends to a cerain extent on the location e.g. if you live in a windy part of the country, or plan on placing it in an open area without any natural wind barriers (garden fence panels, hedges, a building etc) then we would advise anchoring it. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren

Kevin Ferguson Asked:

Can I shorten the posts by up to 45 cm?

We Replied:
