What to Look for in a Gazebo?
Some gazebos come in dimensions and weights which are more suited to permanent fixture in your garden or patio; others will have nothing but the very basics and are perfect for events, festivals and camping. It’s useful to know what features of gazebos are important for you.
Think about the following factors before you buy:
- Temporary or permanent – For example, pop-up gazebos are often temporary, while wooden pergolas are permanent fixtures
- Sides or no sides – Will it be used for wind protection (sides) or as a free-standing canopy (no sides)?
- Weatherproof – Offering protection from the elements of wind, rain and UV – (otherwise, use in combination with a decent gazebo heater)
- Budget – Are you looking for the best value, best premium or commercial grade?
- Dimensions of the gazebo – If you are tight on space or will be moving it regularly
- Additional features – such as mosquito nets, UV resistant side panels, ventilation for smoking etc.
