Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need planning permission for a pergola?

Generally, pergolas are considered permitted development and do not require planning permission, provided they meet specific criteria such as height restrictions and location relative to property boundaries and public highways. However, it's always best to consult with your local planning authority, especially if your property is in a conservation area or is a listed building.

What are the rules for pergolas in the UK?

The main considerations include the pergola's height, its proximity to boundaries, and its location in relation to the road or public highway. Pergolas more than 2.5 meters high or within 2 meters of a boundary might require planning permission. Additional rules apply in conservation areas and for listed buildings​.

Can you build a pergola next to a fence in the UK?

You can build a pergola next to a fence, but if the pergola is over 2.5 meters and within 2 meters of the boundary, you may need planning permission. The key is ensuring the pergola's size and location do not adversely impact your neighbours or the local environment​.

Are your pergola kits easy to build?

Yes, you will receive simple step by step assembly instructions with your pergola. We recommend two people with some DIY skills to assemble the pergola kit.

Can a pergola be put on grass?

Yes, installing a pergola on grass is feasible with the right preparation to ensure stability. It's vital to level the ground and consider using concrete footings or anchors for secure placement. Regular maintenance like mowing and trimming around the pergola is required​​​​.

Can you have a free standing pergola?

Absolutely, free standing pergolas offer flexibility in placement within your garden, not requiring attachment to another structure. They can be securely anchored into the ground through concrete footings or anchor screws to withstand environmental elements​​​​.
