Natural stain is a clear finish that shows off the natural beauty of wood and is as variegated in colors ranging from black knots to a light cream. The closest color to describe the overall natural wood stain would be a golden-brown. Words used synonymously with golden-brown are colors such as: fawn, ochre, honey, blonde, sand, umber, khaki, cornsilk, and colorless.

Natural stain is always in style and goes hand in hand with timber frame and outdoor landscape design. On an outdoor shade structure, the premium grade Natural stain finish gives a comfortable feeling of wholesomeness, family life, loyal friends and dependability. It is also an earthy range of colors for those who have a preference for natural, solidity and simplicity.

The natural yellowish-warm hue of wood is open and embracing, stimulating a joyful energy that promotes a feeling of acceptance, much like the Sun that provides us with light and warmth that we need for this incredible gift we call life. Some color analysts state that the color yellow symbolizes love and in the overcoming of challenges through unconditional love, breathing a promise of new beginnings, happiness and hope. Yellowish-warm colors are exuberantly cheerful, uplifting to the spirits with optimism.

#9 ShadeScape® Pergola Hot Tub Shade Cover

Cedar wood has a warm, woodsy fragrance that creates a pleasureful, uplifting experience. As a bonus for outdoor hot tub lovers, Cedar is inherently designed by nature with insect-repelling qualities. Native Americans used the oil from Cedar wood to repel mosquitoes and to guard against common pests. Cedar oil was also used to protect crops from insects and repel flies from livestock. Closets and chests are sometimes lined with Cedar to be moth-free. Thujaplicin is the aromatic agent of Cedar, making it a natural antibacterial and antifungal wood.

Just a bit of fun Cedar trivia: the center of the Lebanon flag is a Lebanon cedar tree, symbolizing tolerance and immortality. Accordingly, the Lebanon Cedar wood was used to construct King Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem and in the making of ships for Alexander the Great.

For a pergola, Cedar is most often finished in a clear, natural stain to show off its stylish golden hue with beautiful curling knots. This easy DIY Timber Kit is finished in the premium, high grade, UV protective Natural Stain. The ShadeScape® DIY Pergola Kit features a FullWrap® Roof. The FullWrap® roof has the beam and rafter end profiles for a stunning finish on ever side of the roof.
