If you’re like the general population, you call any outdoor structure a gazebo or covered patio. The terms Gazebo, Arbor, Pergola, and Pavilion originated to mean certain features or structures to differentiate them, but over time the definitions have gotten confused. For instance, Wiki defines gazebo as “a roofed structure that offers an open view of the surrounding area…”
Today, a Gazebo is a structure that is freestanding and open, often in a hexagonal or octagonal shape with a dome like roof. They generally aren’t constructed with latticework though they could be if constructed on site.
Gazebos can be placed in any landscape and only make it look better. They greatly enhance the appeal of the area, and are very popular additions for home landscapes.
Gazebos normally contain a seating area for resting. They can be built to cover a picnic area for your family to sit and enjoy a meal while protected by sun and possible rain showers.
They normally are built with a complete roof system including shingles made of wood or metal, or with natural coverings like thatch, but some homeowners like to use latticework for the roof. You can also purchase canvas tarps, but it takes away from the romantic design of a Gazebo.
Gazebos are one of the most aesthetically pleasing garden additions. They really sophisticate any garden design and go equally well in formal as well as natural style gardens. Gazebos look great in coastal home landscapes as well as wooded landscapes.
If you have a healthy imagination, it’s easy to see yourself sitting under your beach-side gazebo, enjoying a drink before dinner with your wife as you watch the sunset together. Or perhaps you desire a romantic fairy like setting in your wooded back yard, with a small pond near one side.
Gazebos can be placed in tiny yards or big ones, they look great just about anywhere. The only thing limiting you is your imagination.
