With the arrival of spring, the garden of a villa can be transformed, thanks to the first rays of the sun, to garden furniture and temperatures that gradually tend to rise, in a small corner of paradise. Read a book, or sip a drink with your friends: why not do it in the shade of a gazebo?
How to choose the gazebos
There are many types of garden gazebos on the market, which differ not only in the intended use and in the materials used. In fact, the technologies adopted during the construction phase and the design choices also vary. From fixed models to detachable models, from metal to wooden gazebos, without forgetting the options relating to size and shape.
Let’s now look in detail at what are the elements to be taken into consideration before proceeding with the purchase of a garden gazebo.
The first factor to consider before buying a garden gazebo is the size. The most common sizes to date are 2 x 3 meters, 3 x 3 meters and 4 x 3 meters. However, there are oversized gazebos, ideal for those lucky enough to have extremely large green spaces.
Not having the possibility to move or to easily access the gazebo ends up diminishing its value. For this reason it is best to make sure to leave a space of at least 50 cm on the sides. This will allow, among other things, to easily bring drinks and food inside the structure.
The style: rustic, shabby or modern
If space is a very important variable, before proceeding with the purchase it is very useful to ask yourself a few questions about the style that the gazebo should have. Just as it happens for the interiors, in fact, there are many styles able to adapt to a green space, from rustic to retro, up to modern.
the first has its maximum expression in the wooden gazebos. The retro style, on the other hand, is characterized by the insertion, in the structure, of sofas, cushions and curtains. Thanks to these elements, a real miniature living room in the garden will be recreated, offering comfort and relaxation without being forced to give up the outdoors. A perfect material for those who love retro style is wrought iron.
Those who prefer to adopt a modern style simply have to choose a gazebo with a minimal and linear structure. To make the difference, in this case, are also the colors, with white playing the leading role.
The materials used for the garden gazebos
The choice between a fixed and a removable gazebo must inevitably take into consideration the materials with which this garden accessory is made. Most of the fixed structures have wood as the absolute protagonist. A good percentage of the removable gazebos, on the other hand, are distinguished by the presence of light materials, with aluminum being preferred to steel; there are also structures in plastic.
Specifically, speaking of wood means referring to a series of variants. Spruce, pine, teak have different colors and ensure, at the same time, a different degree of resistance to shocks and atmospheric agents. Teak, in particular, is a wood much appreciated for its resistance: it has a resin inside that is ideal for preserving it from atmospheric agents. The only negative aspect is represented by the tendency of this material to discolour over time. For this reason, it is necessary to periodically treat it with special products.
The load-bearing structure is the cornerstone of each gazebo, but the cover sheet cannot be overlooked which, together with a series of other accessories, makes the offer complete. The sheet is normally offered in cotton, PVC, polycarbonate (a waterproof plastic material) and waxed materials. Wooden garden gazebos tend not to have sheets, and it is precisely this that makes maintenance operations particularly expensive.
In fact, in the months in which the structure is not used, it becomes imperative to protect it with suitable covers, which can be purchased separately. Not providing adequate provision means, in many cases, being forced to proceed with restructuring interventions.
