Sun is always welcome. In the city, and especially when trips to the countryside. But, guests sometimes you want to retire. From the sun — also, when too much is in exhausting hot summer day. Looking for saving shadow nook somewhere under the canopy of trees. However, not every country area there is a spreading crown, giving a welcome coolness.
Polish magazine “He zrobi” proposes to construct a simple tenebreuse structure — a pergola. It is a lightweight grid structure, which in itself scatters the sun’s rays, and serves as a light frame for the translucent green canopy of climbing plants.
Externally, it resembles the pergola is an unfinished building — a rare stand support does not cover the ethmoid roof. However, nothing more is required: between the uprights is stretched a number of ropes or wires and raised them the creepers lace form a green wall that will cover from the wind, and the sieve of a roof with the tops of the plants will protect from the burning rays.
Although the construction and light weight, it still requires a reliable base — buried in the ground concrete columns. They are molded right on the spot: in pre-dug pits laid cement mortar with a core of rubble or broken bricks. It is desirable that the top of the column a few towered above the ground, which the mouth of the pit should build a kind of box without a bottom.
