A gazebo is something that changes the outlook of your lawn drastically. You might be thinking about installing a deck or patio in your backyard in order to improve the scenery and get more people to come over for parties and get-togethers such as family and neighbors. These are the most common options, but you should always consider getting a gazebo, because these are some of the easier things to build your backyard and they allow for quite a few activities that you might not find with a deck or patio.
Let’s take a look at some gazebo building tips that you might not have heard of before. These tips will allow you to understand the easiest ways to build a gazebo and where to place the gazebo in your yard.
Your Gazebo is Best in An Area With No Trees
One of the best reasons to have a gazebo in your backyard is to protect yourself from the sun when you are hanging out with your friends and family. The San Antonio sun can be extremely hot, so staying out of it is a great idea. When you place a gazebo an area with lots of trees you kind of defeat the purpose of having trees in that area. Spread the wealth throughout your backyard and make sure that the entire yard is shaded just in case people want to sit under the trees or if they want to go in the gazebo.
Your Gazebo is Nice When It’s Close to Your Home
Another benefit of having a gazebo is that you can always enjoy the outdoors when it is raining outside. Unfortunately if you set the gazebo so that it’s, say 100 yards away than you would have to run through the rain in order to get to the gazebo. Make sure the gazebo is at least within a short walk to your home so that you don’t have to sprint through the rain in order to enjoy it.
Think About Adding Enclosures to Your Gazebo
If you are using a gazebo during a season where lots of bugs or out then you might not enjoy it quite as much as you should. A way to solve this is to add enclosures to your gazebo such as screens or netting. When you add a screen you can enjoy the fresh air of the outdoors without having to deal with mosquitoes or June bugs that are typical hazards for San Antonio in people’s backyards. You can even add doors that make it easier to stay inside.
