Insert the beam and gutter sections into the grooves of the assembled posts and fasten them together from the inside using screws. Stand up the full frame.

Step 3 - Install Louvres

Carefully position each louvre slat into the pivot holders on both sides of the pergola top section. Ensure they are all aligned correctly before securing them into place using the provided hardware.

Step 4 - Adjust Frame Position

Ensure each post is positioned at a 90-degree angle perpendicular to the floor. Double check that the entire pergola frame is properly squared and in the desired position.

From Our Customers

Quality is 10/10 - so impressed! Thanks so much guys, we already have plenty of friends and neighbours who will be choosing your company when they want a pergola

- Jason B.

The installer said that these were great quality and fitted together very easily compared with other brands that he installs. Our neighbors are ordering a set now :-)

- Brett A.

Installed late last year and withstood the recent cyclone so we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this product 10/10 from us

- Lisa D.

Excellent quality product that’s easy to set up. The pergola was done by me and my three daughters and the roller she was done by me and my two sons. Seriously thinking of buying again to cover the rest of my humongous deck.

- Mel N.

Really well designed and engineered.
Went together easily.
Quality fittings and easy instructions.
Two of us put it up in 5 hours.

- Gareth M.

We were impressed how easy it was to install by two people in about 3 hours. All the parts were clearly marked and the instructions easy to follow. An easy install despite the numerous rain showers moving through on the day.

- Rogan

We love our louvre. On a sunny day our deck gets almost all day sun, so was too hot to sit out for more than 10 minutes. Now we can enjoy as long as we want any time of the day out there with full or partial shade thanks to the louvre system.

- Hannah T.

Superb product, very easy to build, excellent quality. Well worth the money. So happy with the outcome!

- Dave H.

All our friends and neighbours have admired it and now want one themselves.
Highly recommended.

- Glen P.

Great product. Good installation instructions, easy to install. Fits well into surrounding.

- David R.

It ties in really well with the house and looks great. Very happy glad we selected this option. Detailed instruction manual took about 3 hours to put up and not too difficult at all.

- Katrina R.


There are several reasons why our Pergola Kits stand out in comparison to others. The primary one being our commitment to quality. We prioritize building a better product over merely offering a cheaper price, ensuring you receive a superior louvered pergola system. In addition, we offer a wide variety of sizes, options, and accessories to choose from, allowing you to customise your pergola to your unique needs and requirements. This blend of quality and choice truly sets us apart in the market.

Living Culture Pergolas are designed with durability in mind and are built to last. We offer a 10-year warranty on the frame and a 3-year warranty on the motor to give you peace of mind about your investment. While we provide these warranties, the lifespan of our pergolas is expected to be at least 30 years, ensuring that you can enjoy your outdoor space for decades to come.

The water-resistance of Living Culture Pergolas varies between models. For our strongest models, like the Tasman and Matiatia, they are designed to be waterproof and can withstand extreme weather conditions. When the louvers are in a closed position, the rainwater is efficiently channelled away through the built-in high-volume gutter and downspouts, ensuring no leakage.

For our other models, while they might not be completely waterproof, they are designed to effectively divert rainfall. This guarantees a dry and comfortable space beneath the pergola even during rainy weather.

Yes, we do! We're more than happy to provide an installation service for our customers. If you require our help in setting up your newly purchased Living Culture Pergola, please don't hesitate to contact us. We're here to make the process as smooth as possible for you.

Absolutely! We understand that every situation is unique, and we strive to cater to your specific needs. Whether it's a customised pergola for your home or a commercial pergola for a business space, we are here to help.
