Before & After – Beautiful, Natural Shading

Natureed pergola cladding

Before & After – Beautiful, Natural Shading

A lovely couple from Bowral recently asked us to transform their pergola which was completely uncovered, and had heard about our beautiful, natural Natureed®


The clients had a large space outside that was not usable in the summer months as the area was too hot and sunny and made it very uncomfortable to sit there. They had an existing pergola but it served no purpose for the space.

Our solution:

To use the existing structure and create a usable space that blended nicely with the home and complimented the surroundings.

Natureed® was the perfect solution… Not only did it reduce the heat dramatically, especially on the extreme hot sunny days, but it also allowed a beautiful filtered light to penetrate through – not darkening the area at all but providing a beautiful space for recreation.

In addition to the Natureed® we provided clear polycarbonate to the structure, allowing light to still penetrate through, but making the space usable through rain or shine.

Natureed® is a unique and signature product here at House of Bamboo.

  • It protects approx 70% of the sun’s rays
  • It has 50% more reeds than similar products in the market
  • We use stainless steel wire
  • It is a water reed and therefore water resistant
  • It is also termite resistant
  • It protects from getting burnt
  • It creates filtered light without making the area dark

It is easy to install Natureed® and as you can see from the images, it dramatically improves the look of the pergola, providing lovely shade whilst still allowing the sun to peek through.

During construction

To top it off, the pergola became an extension of the indoor space… blending beautifully and creating a wonderful transition from the indoors to the outdoors!

And most importantly, the owners were very happy with the end result!

“We have to thank you all for the professional manner our job was handled from the day we met at your showroom till the day your installer left.

The service was sensational and we are so happy with the result. It is so much better than we imagined and we will now be able to get far more use out of the outside area in all seasons. If only all our building requirements were met with such enthusiasm and professionalism we would certainly be happy little campers.

Our sincere thanks for everything, we will certainly be recommending House of Bamboo to all our family and friends.”
