Build Your Own Pergola for an Outdoor Retreat


This spring, my husband and I built a pergola on our newly poured patio. It's now a relaxing place to enjoy the beautiful summer evenings. See more pictures on the blog. (Note: there is not a tutorial in the post but there are several great tutorials online. We used the one from Family Handyman and changed it up to suit our needs.)

    how did you anchor the pergola to the cement pad and what tools do I need to use

    • Hi! We used "L" shaped steel brackets and cemented them into the concrete when we poured the patio. They have holes in the side that sticks out of the concrete which we fastened the legs to. Hope this answers your question!
