Gazebos Provide Versatility to Your Garden
Having a gazebo in the garden is something that just seems to make sense. Whatever the age or size of your home may be, the gazebo works wonderfully as a substitute for the deck or patio that won’t or can’t fit around the house or the budget. One of the most popular styles that come to mind is a gazebo of octagonal wood, painted white. However, there are many styles and materials to choose from:
- Gazebos can be constructed of wood, wrought iron, or vinyl.
- They come in various shapes: oval, octagon, rectangle, or dodecagon, that is, 12 sided.
- Gazebos can have a simple asphalt roof, double roofs, or a roof with a cupola.
- A 6-foot or smaller gazebo is perfect for simple, peaceful moments while a larger gazebo can accommodate a whole party.
- They come screened to keep out evening pests, like mosquitoes, or can be open to blend with the natural beauty, scents, and sounds of your garden.
- You can even incorporate most any furnishings into your gazebo, such as benches, tables and chairs, or swings.
- Don’t forget the romance of wiring for electricity to enjoy lighting, or even a ceiling fan for those hot summer nights.
The gazebo could almost become a little bit of a home-away-from-home or even a summer house right in your own back yard, making a magnificent addition to your garden or landscaping. Embellish it with ivies or vines that will climb the lattice work. Nearby, place a birdbath, raised garden beds, decorative planters, bench, or a small bridge crossing the little creek, with a path leading to your gazebo.
Whether you want to bring a little nostalgia to your garden area or create a summer home-away-from-home, a gazebo can do the job while adding beauty, peace, and comfort to your backyard.
