Traditional Pergolas

Contemporary Pergolas


Please phone or email Rodas Irving to discuss your requirements.

We can price from your outline drawings or sketches, and can help develop these for construction to achieve your vision.

We produce a simple 3D visual in SketchUp for approval.

Once the pergola is signed off by you, we’ll agree a timetable for installation. A deposit may be required.

Oxford Oak will make your pergola in our Oxfordshire workshop, deliver and install it on your site. We can work with your landscape contractors for installation where this suits you.

Pergola Season

Oak pergolas are made from green oak, so they season best slowly over the winter months, rather than quickly during summer. We recommend booking your pergola for installation from October to March.


Each pergola is individually made in our Oxfordshire workshop.

We use traditional pegged mortice and tenon joints, made with oak pegs hand made in our workshop. This creates an attractive and very robust joint. Other joints are fixed with stainless steel coach screws.

To fix the posts inground, choose either galvanised or stainless steel stand-offs, or the oak posts are fixed directly inground.
