Elegant Gazebos for Outdoor Enjoyment

Gazebos conjure up romantic images of quiet strolls, peaceful moments of reflection, and being surrounded by the beauty and bounty of nature. While gazebos tend to have quite a romantic reputation, the truth is they are amazingly multifunctional and a great option for anyone looking to optimize their outdoor living space. Not only do they add a “wow” factor to any residential or commercial property, but they also add value to a home. A gazebo is an investment that can pay off in both the short-term and the long-term.

The Benefits of Adding a Gazebo

A gazebo can be a charming, quiet place of reflection where you can watch the sunset and appreciate the beauty of nature. It can also be a place of joy, laughter, and celebration, adorned in decorations and playing host to family and friends. It can be the neighborhood hot spot, or a place of privacy and solitude–or both. A gazebo is a multifunctional outdoor space that can adapt to numerous settings and occasions.

The diversity of these structures can’t be overstated. Some of the benefits of adding a gazebo to your property include:

  • Added value. While an appraiser can’t count an outdoor gazebo as extra square footage, a gazebo does add value to a home and factors into the overall worth of the property itself. It also tends to make the property more attractive to potential buyers. 
  • Shelter. A gazebo can make it possible for you to enjoy the outdoors year-round. A gazebo offers shade from the scorching sun in the summer and protection from rain and snow in the spring and winter months. It can protect your outdoor furniture and is a great place to house certain hanging and potted plants to give them protection from the elements as well. 
  • Entertaining space. For weddings, birthdays, or special occasions, a gazebo is a wonderful and versatile entertaining space. There is no need to spend money securing a venue for a special occasion when you have the perfect location in your own backyard. Flowy fabric and mounds of flowers can transform a gazebo into a romantic wedding spot, while colorful balloons and streamers make it the perfect setting for a birthday. Maybe it’s just Tuesday, and you want to kick back with a glass of wine with friends: a gazebo is perfect for that too. There is no end to the number of special memories you can create with family and friends in your new gazebo. 
  • Privacy. A gazebo is also the perfect place for a little peace, solitude, and privacy. It is a place of escape where you can relax, get closer to nature, and enjoy a quiet moment away from the hustle and bustle of it all. 
  • An architectural feature. A gazebo can add a structural focal point and beautiful architectural element to any yard or garden. While functional, it is also a wonderful way to add depth and dimension to your landscaping. 
  • Hot tub enclosure. Many people want to enjoy the relaxing benefits of a hot tub but have nowhere to put it. A gazebo offers an elegant solution. It gives just the right amount of protection and privacy while being a gorgeous enhancement to a property. 
  • Variety. Gazebos are amazingly versatile structures that can be designed in just about any shape and size. Whether you want a hexagon that can accommodate 20 people or a square that seats two, the perfect gazebo for you and your needs does exist.

Gazebo Materials

Wooden gazebos are the classical standard that most people picture when they hear the word “gazebo”. However, numerous materials can be utilized to create a gazebo. Which material is right for you depends on your needs and expectations.

Some of the materials that can be used to craft a gazebo include:

  • Wood
  • Vinyl
  • Metal or Aluminum

Gazebos can also employ a variety of different roofing materials. Again, which product is right for you depends on your needs, weather conditions, and design aesthetic. The most common roofing materials include:

  • Asphalt shingles
  • Rubber slate
  • Metal roofing
  • Canopy or fabric

The best way to determine which materials are right for your project is to contact an experienced landscaper.
