Open Thread: Gardenline Pergola

Aldi is a great place to get outdoor products, whether you’re looking for gardening supplies, camping gear, or patio furniture and decor. When it comes to patio furniture, Aldi has sold everything from folding chairs to tables to outdoor love seat sets to fire pits.

One item the discount grocer has offered for the past couple of years is the Gardenline Pergola. If you’re spending more time on your patio or deck and you’d like a little more shade and shelter, well, Aldi has you covered.

What We Know:

Gardenline Pergola

The Gardenline Pergola (Product Code: 49964) sold for $169.99 in May of 2020.

Aldi sold the pergola for the same price in 2019 and for $149.99 in 2018, so the price has crept up some over the years.

Features for the 2020 pergola include:

  • Measures 11.5′ x 9′ x 7.5′
  • Adjustable canopy with lock
  • UV- and water-resistant canopy top
  • Steel frame
  • One-year warranty

This year’s pergola comes with just a one-year warranty, but last year’s pergola came with a two-year warranty. Since at least 2016, the warranty service has been provided by TDC USA, Inc., which is based in Hong Kong with a U.S. office in New Jersey. They provide warranty service for several of Aldi’s products, including an offset outdoor umbrella, gazebo, double glider, grill gazebo, popup gazebo, and umbrella side table. While we don’t know for sure, we would assume the 2020 pergola’s warranty will be serviced by the same company.

We also found the user manual for the 2018 Gardenline Pergola on TDC’s website here.

What We Don’t Know:

We have not used the Gardenline Pergola, so we don’t know how well it works or how it holds up with outdoor use over time.

    I do have an ALDI pergola 49964 , I just need the replacement canopy. Where I can get it and how much. Thanks

    • I need the same thing. I am disappointed that Gardenline does not have a replacement canopy for the Pergola.

    • Amazon has one online as well as Wayfair. The prices vary from about $62 to $85 depending on the design of the fabric. These ones have grommet drains to keep the water from puddling. I have not bought one but was looking in case I need to replace the ones I have.

  3. Is this mountable to concrete pad??Do the legs have a mount on the bottom

  4. Just brought the Aldi Pergola 49964 does this comes in two boxes and are charged for each box?

    • I just got this pergola two days ago. The whole things comes in two boxes – a long one and a short one – and the two together should cost $169.99 and NOT $169.99 for each.

      • Can you tell me the actual dimensions of the distance of the feet? I assume the dimensions on the product description are the top of the pergola, length and width. I am trying to find out if it would fit on my existing deck space.

        • Yes, this would be super helpful information. I need to distance from outside leg to outside leg, length and width.

  5. Hello,

    Is the pergola available in every state? I don’t normally shop there and I don’t see a search function on their website to search for that product number. TIA

    • Aldi, unfortunately, doesn’t have a product search function. I assume it’s available in every state — you can go to Aldi’s site, enter your zip code, and double-check your weekly ad.

      • I did check the weekly ad but it’s not featured. I’m going to go ask tomorrow, but I highly doubt they employees will know anything. Thanks anyway!

  6. Would like to purchase a pergola but our local store only received one needless to say it sold…anyway to order one? Sent email before but did not really get an answer.

  7. Does anyone know if the Aldi’s pergola is the same as the Allen and Roth version that Lowe’s carries?

    I have had mine for about 3 years and it has held up very well. I had to replace the canopy as it collects rain between the slates and became worn out. I found a replacement on Amazon but it’s not a perfect fit.

  9. The one in this week’s (May 27-June 2) ad (Gardenline 32720-20) for $79.00 is different. The instructions say it is not waterproof and not to use in wind and rain as rain can pool and damage the canopy. This seems useless to me. Has anyone had any experience with this model?

    • I have it. It was great for the first few months, but wore out really fast. It dry rotted and shredded apart after a year. It indeed did pool evertime it rained, and the heavy pouches of water caused the fabric to rub on the exposed screw ends, tearing it. The water also did a slow drip thru the fabric so everything stayed wet for days unless you manually pushed the canopy up to drain the water off, which would also cause it to tear. I guess the intention is to leave the canopy off year round, and only set it up for special occasions of use, then take it back down. Its not built for daily enjoyment on a regular basis. The slighteat wind made a paracute and lifted the canpoy. The locks on the poles dont work, the breeze is enough to make them drag & slide.

      • I’m finding the same issue with the canopy parachuting! The locks don’t work well. Mine has only been up for a week and already experiencing this issue. Does anyone have a way to fix that? The wind even carried out one of the rods in the Canopy!

  10. Recently purchased Gardenline Pergola from Aldi… I am missing parts that weren’t included in the box. I’ve been trying to get a hold of someone in customer service via telephone and email. When I call I get voicemail. No return call and no response to emails. Any other way I can get these missing parts or get in contact with an actual person?
    Thanks.

  11. What are the specifications for this product – Gardenline Pergola?

  12. Does anyone use weights to anchor their pergola down?

  13. I have one and I love it. Perfect for my backyard area.
