Have you ever wanted to build you own pergola, but were daunted by the high price of the pergola plan kits? It's interesting to know that while many people dream of putting up their own pergola outside their homes, most of these people pay hundreds, if not thousands, just to get the same materials and plans that they could get for a far lower price elsewhere.

What if you could get your dream garden pergola for only a small percentage of the actual price? What if you could save as much as 40 percent on costs?

Charles Kirkland is a seasoned woodworker and a veteran gardener. He was really put off by the way people were paying outrageous sums of money for something they could build by themselves for a fraction of a cost. His Pergola Plans are the fruits of his hard work in trying to find a simple way to build a pergola and at the same time save money. He was able to create a set of plans that anyone could follow to create a functional and great looking garden pergola.

Charles Kirkland's pergola plans can be downloaded from his website, and printed right off the computer. Charles assures everyone that his plans are very accurate on what materials to buy. He even has his own technical service hotline to help those who experience any problems with the pergola plans.

Upon purchasing the pergola plans, you also get a free pergola plan for a picnic table. All files that you receive come in Adobe PDF format.

Nice plans!
posted this review on June 29, 2014

Dad and I wanted to have a DIY project in the background and we have enough space for a pergola, so we thought of building one there. We tried to have it designed by a professional, but it was too expensive, so we had to search for plans ourselves. This is the best one we found because it’s very detailed. Most other plans are hard to follow if you’re just beginners in woodworking and DIY projects. This one is different. It’s also so much cheaper than having it designed professionally. It cost maybe just a quarter of the lowest prices we were charged. The only challenge here is choosing how big will fit in your backyard. You need to take a lot of measurements and be careful. My dad is quite good at that so it wasn’t too much of an issue for us. We got the biggest we can get for our backyard because we wanted it to be family space. It’s just nice hanging out there on weekends, especially when my nieces and nephews come to visit. We spent quite some time working on the pergola, but it’s all worth it for the result that we got. We now have a pretty place to hang out in whenever we can. We are looking forward to making lots and lots of memories in our little work of art!

We saved about 70%
posted this review on March 10, 2014

Mom and dad got a new home for their retirement. It was pretty empty so we decided to decorate it with a new pergola. Adam, my husband, and I volunteered to take care of it. However, when we found out how expensive it was, we wanted to bail out. With a bit of research, we found this. Adam used to be a clerk in a construction firm so he’s acquainted with some good carpenters. We got 2 of them, got these plans, and had them working on the pergola. It came out cheaper than we expected. We saved a lot of money. If we got experts to build the pergola it would have cost us a few thousands. I think we saved about 70% because of what we did. We got the 12x14 pergola plan from the website, and it came out perfect. Mom loved it, and dad was ecstatic about decorating it. They’ve decorated the place now and it came out prettier than we thought it would. Our kids also love playing in their grannies’ pergola. I wanted to post some photos here so everyone can see the finish product but the website won’t allow me to do it. If only we had enough space in the house to build one, we would have done so.

My pergola looks amazing!

I’ve built my first pergola in our old house almost 3 years ago, but it was nasty. My wife had to decorate it to make it look presentable. She said she misses the old pergola, so I decided to build another one for our new home. It took me some time to decide whether I’ll have it designed and built professionally or try it again on my own. When I found these plans, I decided that it’s better to try it on my own. Pergola Plans is amazing because it’s very easy to follow and you can also save a lot on the materials. This second pergola came out a lot better than the first one and I think it’s because of the quality of the guide I used.

You definitely should give this a shot!

Surprisingly, the pergola designs here are excellent. Since it’s a DIY guide, I expected our pergola to look like a DIY project. But when it was finished, it looked like any other pergola you see in other homes. I think ours cost only a quarter of what those other pergolas cost. My wife and I and our 2 kids worked together to bring our dream pergola to life. The basic structure we did according to a plan we got from here and then we just decorated it. We got some flowering plants and planted them around the pergola. My wife made it look Greek. It’s great coming home to something so relaxing and something close to nature. We can also hold wine tasting parties in there for weekends with friends. I’m sure it will be perfect. If you’re still deciding whether or not you should get this, you SHOULD get it and try building your own pergola. I’m sure you’ll be thanking me for convincing you to build your own.

This is perfect for those with experience in woodworking

I wouldn’t recommend trying this on your own if you don’t have any experience in woodworking. I made the stupid decision of trying, and I would have wasted a hell lot of materials if my cousin hadn’t come to my rescue. He has experience in woodworking, and he helped me with the measurements and how to put them together. I was just an assistant.

My cousin said that these plans are good. The only problem with me is that I couldn’t read them. I chose the wrong plan at first. My cousin realized that the plan I chose was too big for our backyard, so I had to negotiate to trade it for the right plan, and the owner of the website was kind enough to grant my request. It took us about 2 weeks to finish our pergola. There were only two of us working, and I was of little use, so it took too much time. But if you will have it done by a professional, I think they can finish this in a few days. Anyway, no problem with the plans, but you gotta assess your skills if you can handle this on your own.

Great plans for simple pergolas
Jeremy Radd (from Sabinal, USA) posted this review on July 23, 2013

This is great if you’re just looking to build a simple pergola. My boyfriend did one to our new house, and it’s really good. I was shocked because he doesn’t have any experience or formal training in carpentry. It was like a hidden talent that just surfaced out of nowhere. Or it could be these guides. He said they’re really easy to follow. The pergola is pretty simple, but it’s up to me to make it unique. I’m actually thinking of a theme for it. I couldn’t find a guide on the internet. I think the maker of this plan should come up with a pergola decorating guide as well, or other uses for a pergola if that’s possible.

My husband built me an awesome one in the backyard
posted this review on June 15, 2013

My husband built a pergola in our backyard as a “getting back together” gift for me. He had help from his brother, but both of the guys don’t have any idea about carpentry, so I was shocked to see what they came up with. I don’t exactly know which pergola plan she got from this website because there are a lot. But he did tell me he got the instructions from here. I really didn’t expect them to be able to come up with such a stunning piece for our backyard. I’ve already furnished it with an outdoor coffee/chess set. Our friends love coming over to hang out there, and it was also the talk of the town for quite some time. This is the best gift my husband has ever given me.

People can't believe how cheap our pergola is
posted this review on May 29, 2013

If your hubby or son or any other person in your household loves woodworking, you can probably use that to your advantage and build a pergola plan in your backyard. Pergolas are really glam additions to the home. We have just a simple home, but with our new pergola, it looks like a million bucks. My husband downloaded a guide here. He got several guides and we just picked one to use. We had to layout the entire backyard, so it took a little more work than we expected, but now that it’s done, it’s really worth every weekend we spent pounding, cutting, and nailing stuff together. I’ve designed it so perfectly to match our house’s new paint, and it looks so lovely. My husband said the guide is sooo easy to follow. The measurements are all accurate, and the design is not that complicated. But he thinks it will still be difficult for people who don’t have any experience in woodworking because the measurements and instructions should be followed perfectly.

Most of the plans are great!
posted this review on May 18, 2013

Not all the plans are great, but most of them are, and you’re not gonna need all of them anyway. For 20 bucks each plan, and with the guarantee, you can download maybe 3-4 plans and then choose which ones you want return the others. It’s that easy. We’ve just finished building ours ourselves, and it looks awesome! It’s amazing how much we saved. If you have any problems with your pergola, you can email their support to get help. They usually reply in a few hours, but on weekends they take a little longer.

Simplified plans
posted this review on April 12, 2013

I got disappointed when I saw in their website that the biggest package they have is a set of 5 plans only and it sells for almost $40. My husband got a shed plan package from another website and there were so many shed plans there. This is a little expensive if compared to that. We got the package of 5 plans because the individual plans are a lot more expensive at $20 each. When we saw the plans, we realized why they sell it at such a high price. We built the 10×10 one for our house, and it looks really good now. It looks like it’s built by an expert. Our neighbors asked us who did it for us, and they get surprised when we tell them that we built it ourselves. I invited my sister over to show her our pergola, and now her husband is building one for their backyard. It really saves money because you don’t have to bother with labor costs, and you get to choose the materials that fit your budget. The needed materials are also discussed in the guide, so you won’t have any problems with that either.

Great starting plans
posted this review on January 7, 2013

I learned the most basic instructions on building a pergola from this collection. There are a lot of pergolas in this collection, and I built one for our home and for my mom’s home. My wife’s friend saw it and commissioned me to build theirs too, and since then, I’ve been getting projects left and right. I’ve an assistant now helping me with the projects. It’s a good thing because I’m jobless at the moment. This collection is complete with all the information you need to get started. You will learn where to find affordable materials, and the equipment needed isn’t much too. I just borrowed some from my neighbor until I started my business, and had to buy my own. The plans are also affordable. I’ve downloaded all of them and made a catalog. Now that I’m an experienced pergola builder, I also do my own designs, but they’re still based on these plans.

Our first attempt at a pergola has been sucessful!
J.A. (from Anaheim, USA) posted this review on January 7, 2013

I’m so excited to share with you that our first try at building a pergola is a huge success! My boyfriend and I saw one in a movie we were watching, and we wanted one for the backyard right away. Pergola Plans has a lot of plans that are easy to follow and waaaay cool! The pergola we came up with looks like it was built by a professional. Now that I’ve come up with my own pretty pergola, I wonder why other people pay so much money to have them made. I mean my boyfriend and I both have fulltime jobs, but we found time to build our pergola. We’re super proud of it. We wanted to put a swing in it but we are still looking for a way to build it ourselves. Hahaha! We’re that cheap. For now we got the old wooden garden set my mom isn’t using anymore and put it there. Its’ nice having romantic moment there under the stars surrounded by our plants!

The easiest and cheapest way to build a pergola
posted this review on December 30, 2012

I tried looking for e person willing to build my pergola for a reasonable amount of money, but most of them overcharge. They think it’s a “luxury” item, and should be charged more than regular woodwork. That’s BS because it’s so easy to build one! Out of my frustration from looking for the right person to build my pergola, I came across Pergola Plans. I read the plans and they seemed easy to follow. I gathered my materials right away and got to work. I finished it in a few days. It’s my first woodworking experience, so I didn’t expect it to be that easy. If you want a pergola built exactly the way you want it to be, and without having to spend ridiculous amounts of money, you’d have to build it yourself. Pergola Plans is more than enough to guide you.

I became a part-time pergola builder because of this
posted this review on October 27, 2012

Using the plans here, I made our own pergola in the backyard where my wife grows her garden. Some neighbors so it, and wanted one for their homes too. I saw it as an income opportunity, and now making pergolas has become my sideline. The guides from here are so easy to follow. I just printed the entire thing, and I let my customers choose from among the many guides include. I also offer customization because a lot of clients have specific looks and designs in mind. I’ve also used their customer support twice, and they reply promptly. I hope they come up with more plans in the future. As a part-time pergola builder now, I find the plans too few. They may be enough for someone who just wants to build their own structure, but since I’m doing pergolas for other people now, that’s not gonna work for me anymore.

Lovely and easy to follow plans
posted this review on August 16, 2012

I fell in love with a pergola at a friend’s house, and as soon as my husband and I got home, I searched for guides on how to build it, and found this. The plans here are so easy to follow and the materials needed are quite simple. They’re easy to find, and there are a lot of shortcuts available so my husband and I finished our pergola in a single weekend.

Excellent product!
posted this review on July 10, 2012

The plans here are excellent! I’m not so good at carpentry, but I didn’t have the money to have someone else make it for me, so I decided to purchase this. I saw other plans online, but these are the cheapest and it looked alright, so I chose it over others. The plans here are easy to follow, and the materials are cheap and easy to find. My finished pergola looked so great that my friends couldn’t believe that I built it myself. They also couldn’t believe how easy it was when I explained to them how I did it. They are now planning to build their own, and I suggested they choose plans from here. I highly recommend this for people who are planning to spice up their backyards a bit.


Pergola Plans easy to follow

Pergola plans don’t ruin the schedules of people because they are so easy to follow.

Anyone would not have any problems building it because the instructions are very detailed and guide the person through it.

Half the price and easy to build on the weekend

Anyone can finish a pergola plan kit over the weekend for half the cost of what others have spent.

Pergola plans can withstand storms

The pergola plans are flexible with any available space and can be cemented around the poles to enable it to stand through any storm. The ease of the plans enable anyone to build a good pergola.
