Pergola Assembly

Assembling your pergola is easy! All it takes is basic hand tools. No power equipment required.

You don’t need to be a master carpenter to assemble your Backyard Life pergola. If you own a cordless drill/screwdriver, level, wrenches and a hammer, you’ve got everything you need.


Our easy to follow instruction manual will guide you every step of the way.

Clear, step-by-step instructions leave nothing to chance or the imagination. Each step is illustrated with a photo accompanied by a clear and detailed explanation, eliminating guesswork or confusion.

In just a few hours, you and a friend can put together a brand new pergola.

Two people are all that’s needed to assemble a pergola in a morning or afternoon. Each piece of your pergola kit has been carefully crafted and inspected before shipment to assure a smooth, accurate fit. Your pergola will be strong, stable, sturdy... and gorgeous!


Rather not do it yourself? Let the professionals help.

If you choose not to assemble your pergola yourself, contact your local Backyard Life dealer about having their experienced professional installer do the job for you. Expect courtesy, care for your property, and complete clean up when the job is done.
