Have you thought about adding an enclosure such as a screened in porch to your backyard, but are looking for a more cost effective alternative? Adding a pergola with mosquito curtains is a creative and affordable way to create an enclosed space for enjoying bug protection.
Pergolas by themselves provide shade on brighter days. These structures are made up of four posts with cross rafters. The further apart the rafters are, the more sun that will come through.
Mosquito curtains are made of a sheer netting fabric which is used to protect against mosquitoes and other bugs. This material can be attached to pergola structures on tracks, which can be opened or closed depending on the weather. Mosquito curtains not only provide the functional need of insect protection, but they also add a decorative touch as well as privacy to the outdoor living space.
Combining the structure of a pergola along with the mosquito curtain feature creates a great cost effective alternative to an enclosure, like a screened in porch. By placing the mosquito curtains on top of the pergola as well as surrounding, a bug free enclosure is possible.
