Gazebos are a popular choice when it comes to outdoor living spaces. They provide shelter from rain and sun while allowing you to sit and relax. Adding extra seating or a patio rug can help turn your gazebo into a livable outdoor den. If your yard has a pool, you might consider installing a garden gazebo
to shade your poolside bar and chairs.
Gazebos are available in several different shapes. These include the dodecagon, hexagonal, and octagonal. All of them offer a wide variety of benefits. You should choose the right gazebo to suit your needs.
The right gazebo can make a great escape, a nice place to get together with friends and family, or even a perfect hideout for your children. It can also serve as a home base for an all-weather hot tub.
A gazebo is an open structure with a roof, and usually is built to last. However, you need to keep in mind some of the factors affecting its longevity.
For example, a gazebo made from wood is going to be affected by weather more than a vinyl model. So, you need to ensure that your gazebo is well-built and that it is properly set in the ground. Ideally, a wooden model should be built on a sand foundation.
Another feature you should look for is an integrated light. Some models are fitted with a cooling system to keep you cool. Others, such as the wrought iron model, don't require any external lighting.
