Types of Gazebos

Gazebos are great additions to any garden. Your individual preference will be the deciding factor to choosing the right gazebo.  Choices are not limited to the Hexagonal gazebo, the pop up gazebo and the metal gazebo. The solid wood gazebo, and the wrought iron gazebo are also ones to consider.

Colors vary with gazebos, however, the green gazebo is very popular because it blends nicely into the landscape and seems to cool the hot summer days just by looking at it. The price, as well as the accessibility of either picking up or having your gazebo shipped or delivered, will all play into your final decision.  I have listed some of the more popular types.

Hexagonal Gazebo

The hexagonal gazebo is one of many shapes of gazebos to choose from. A hexagonal has 5 sides and is weather resistant and rust free. One main material, sometimes not found in others, is a material called Terylene. It is easily maintained and be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Hexagonal gazebo

When purchasing, you most likely will have to assemble the parts
yourself. Some stores will offer a set-up service which is in addition to the purchase price. The Hexagonal gazebo is self standing and comes with mosquito netting. It also comes with a one year warranty.

Pop up Gazebo

A pop up gazebo is designed to be a portable and versatile investment. They offer a fast easy way to obtain shade and  set up and take down in minutes whether it's to provide an entertainment pavilion or to host a family get-together. Some have wind vents and other special options, such as adjustable heights or double corner braces for added support against high winds.

These gazebos, also known as canopy gazebos or canvas gazebos, can be set up in grass or lawns very easily. It is a good idea to put a stake beside each of the posts or legs of the frame.

Most gazebos will come with small nail-like stakes, but it is okay to use any other types of stakes that might do a better job of holding down the gazebo. You might also use small sand bags that are ties to the legs. You can even make try filling small cans with concrete and positioning them behind a potted plant if you needed to conceal any of the stakes or sandbags.

They are free standing, and include ground stakes, and a carrying bag. Most often the frame is a type of steel and weighs around 34 pounds, making it extremely easy for all members of the family to access. The material portion of the gazebo is polyester, a very durable and rain resistant material which can be cleaned with soap and water. The most common sizes of a pop ups are the 10x10 gazebo and the 10x15 gazebo. They range in the low hundred categories. The 10 x 15 ft. gazebo is large enough to put a dining set under it. Warranties are normally around 90 days.

"Metal Gazebo"

Metal Gazebo

Metal Gazebo

Metal gazebos can range from those with aluminum poles to those with heavy steel frames. Most of the lesser priced ones come with aluminum poles with the mosquito netting. These range in size, but the 10 x 10 and the 12 x 12 are the most commonly ones purchased, but I have found some with octagonal spaces as well. 

Metal gazebos are free standing because of their weight, but they can also be anchored down to a solid surface. The more expensive ones, which can go up to $3000 plus dollars are quite ornate and offer a very  elegant, but functional design.

The canvas gazebo and the canopy gazebo are the most popular types of gazebo. They are reasonably priced and offer a wide variety of styles to choose from. The frame of these gazebos can be made of wood, aluminum or metal. You will find the 10 x 10 gazebo to be easy to find. The 10' x 10' gazebo is the perfect size for most of your outdoor functions. One advantage of the 10 x 10 gazebo canopy, is that a gazebo replacement canopy can be purchased from most gazebo dealers easily.

The tops are made of canvas or a polyethylene type of water repellant materials. The canopy can be easily replaced if anything happens to it. More information and facts can be found in other articles at yardandgardenrescue.com.
