Choose the Perfect Gazebo

Choose the Perfect Gazebo

Picking the right gazebo means doing a lot of brainstorming. The main thing about the gazebo that you have to think about is what you will be using it for. Will it be a gazebo for social gatherings, a gazebo to spend time with friends, a gazebo for yourself, a place to read and have tea with a nice view to the garden you’ve been taking care for and spending long hours dealing with garden maintenance? Choose its purpose before making any other choice and you can even browse some photos to get inspirations about how it could look like and what shape would best fit that purpose. After that you can move on to the harder questions:

Wood or Vinyl Gazebo?

Wood gazebos are the classic type, they can be of most wood types, and they can be painted to look the way you like. They will bring the garden a more traditional and rustic look, the one that British people love. Its drawback is that it requires a lot of maintenance otherwise it would rot or warp and it needs to be polished and kept smooth and free of splinters. Vinyl gazebos, on the other hand, need very little maintenance, they don’t stain and need no polish, and are extremely easy to clean when they do. But they come with the cons of being expensive, they offer a limited colour option, and they don’t bring much to the state of the garden.

Classic or Modern Gazebo?

The classic gazebo is the first image that pops to your mind when you hear the word: a house-like structure with benches to sit on. It’s classic for a reason and it is meant to have a place to sit and relax among nature and enjoy the lawn you or your expert gardeners have taken care for. The modern gazebo, however, if you can afford it, can be used for a variety of purposes. There are pool deck gazebos, sports gazebo with a table tennis or foosball option, hot tub gazebos and so on. Just remember, the more options you add, the more expensive it will be.

Make these two choices and the overall picture of the perfect gazebo should be already formed in your head. All you have to do now is do some garden clearance, and start planning your landscaping project and building that perfect gazebo for you.
