Your pergola is a perfect place for some seriously festive holiday lighting. Here are a few tips for getting a great look, as well as for getting the job done safely. Choose your lights. You can choose cheap Christmas lights with thin strands, but you don’t have to. Patio lighting looks amazing all year. Choose heavy-duty lights meant to withstand the elements. You can simply switch from colored holiday bulbs to clear white bulbs after the season is over. Or go bold with blue or gold lights, which look Christmas-y at Christmas but which just look cool any other day..
Many customers ask whether we install fences in winter. The answer is yes, we do, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. And believe it or not, the colder months are often an ideal time to install–especially during the month of November.

You get that perfect fall weather, our beautiful fall color, and the Halloween season all rolled up in one. Doing NaNoWriMo this year?
