Pergolas are structures designed by the ancient Greeks as transition gardens add beauty to the landscape and pathways between entries. Without legs permanently installed, the pergola can come unbalanced and tip, while someone is swinging. Measure the area you are using the pergola swing and determine the number of support posts. Mix the concrete according to the manufacturer’s instructions in his wheelbarrow with shovel. Add water as specified by the manufacturer. Half fill the hole with concrete and push the post into the hole. Fill the whole the rest of the way with concrete. Allow the concrete to set for 24 hours before proceeding with the construction of the pergola swing to your design.
Screw the beam into the low parts of beam so that the entire roof structure is complete, robust and ready to put in the supports. Lift the roof over the stands with the help of some friends and secure in place with metal brackets and wood screws. Climb the ladder and screw installation hooks swing in one of the main support beams. Go down and check the height of the pergola swing. You want the swing is roughly 1-1 feet off the ground, as this is a convenient halfway up session.
