Bespoke Pergolas

Bespoke Pergolas

Created by craftsmen for your exacting standards

Bespoke Pergolas

In addition to our usual pergola that we have offered for some time, we can now offer larger, bespoke pergolas.

On the one pictured we used prime grade oak with each component specially jointed and reinforced with stainless steel and plugged to give that traditional look.

 The site where we have positioned the bespoke pergola originally had a structure there, with a mature Wisteria clambering all over it.  Our installation team dismantled the structure, carefully and tenderly untwining the wisteria.  After construction of the new pergola, the Wisteria was gently coaxed onto its new home and we are happy to report is thriving. 


Martin and his team created an exquisite bespoke pergola and swing seat for us this summer. 

 Martin listened very carefully to our needs and designed an elegant structure that creatively managed the large 11m patio we were looking to cover. He used his team’s horticultural experience to both diarise and execute the project to save our beautiful 80 year old wisteria and vine supported by his design. 

We had a wonderful team onsite who worked hard to explain every stage of the assembly project, even to our young sons who were most excited by it all! At every step their first objective was to ensure we were satisfied with their efforts. Martin and his team are real artists with wood and their passion is infectious. They are also fantastic company and we were very sorry to see them leave our garden, although so delighted with the stunning result!

Your pergola, your choice

Pergolas can be a stunning addition to any garden; an impressive, eye-catching feature that creates a room-like outdoor space—a perfect spot for al fresco dining and barbecues, or just a place to retreat to and unwind after a hard day’s work. 

Each Sitting Spiritually pergola is handcrafted from scratch. We are able to provide a fully bespoke design; always happy to adapt and coordinate with your own unique vision to create the perfect product for you. While our expert team of joiners use FSC certified oak or larch to build our pergolas, other woods and finishes are readily available. Again, this is your design and we will be delighted to discuss each element at every step of the way.

Size, dimensions, choice of woods, fixings, even the installation of a swing seat: you’re in charge!

A Truly Bespoke Pergola

For this particular job, a client contacted Sitting Spiritually recently looking for us to design and fabricate a bespoke pergola for their beautiful outdoor decking area. Our team was able to remove the old pergola from the client’s decking and utilize the remaining foundations for the new structure. On top of these foundations, we bedded in paving slabs and bolted the legs with stainless steel shoes to properly support the new pergola. What could’ve been a potentially tricky installation issue, resulted in our team modifying the design to find a solution.

To give the wood that rich dark finish—and add a layer of waterproof protection—we applied a high-quality woodstain made by Sadolins. We used Douglas Fir on this construction, one of the real joys of Douglas Fir is that it's exceptional stability means it can span particularly long distances - this can be particularly useful when constructing a large bespoke pergola.

Sarah was delighted with the finished product and the service we provided. Her already beautiful decking area now has its crowning jewel: a lovingly handcrafted, custom-made pergola

“Fantastic job exactly what I wanted.” 

If you’d like to join the list of happy Sitting Spiritually customers and give your garden a new lease of life with a stunning new pergola, please feel free to contact the team to see if we can help.

An inspirational focal point or an integral part of the overall garden design

Bespoke Pergola Garden Furniture

Prime grade oak beautifully crafted and constructed to last for decades

Typically, a pergola is designed and built to support itself and the weight of the plants it supports. A Sitting Spiritually pergola is designed to be far more robust. We over-engineer our structures to support the weight of the swing seat and  the people sitting on it. But also, the extra loads created by the lateral forces generated  by the swinging motion. The tolerances we build into the design and construction, particularly the joints, mean you have a super strong structure that is guaranteed to last.

We are always happy to work with you offering any help where needed. We can design and build a pergola just from the dimensions of the space. Or, we can work from basic line drawings supplied to us by yourself or client.

If you have something particular and have completed technical drawings, we can build a structure to your exact requirements.

We are also happy to offer an installation service for our Swinging Day Bed & Swing Seat Pergolas, just ask us.
