It is always in the trend: in a closed house, even the chilly autumn weather and winter cold will not interfere with your rest, and an open gazebo allows you to feel unity with the surrounding nature and enjoy all the delights of the garden. It remains only to choose the option you like and create your own unique oasis for relaxation!
What gardener doesn’t dream of a gazebo? Such a building not only serves as a comfortable place to relax, but can also become the main decoration of the garden. Round, polygonal, classic quadrilateral, with glass walls or open with a roof and support beams — the range of models in their design and external parameters has expanded significantly in recent years. At the same time, the design and materials can be any. It remains only to take into account the design style of the site.
Outdoor gazebos made of wood with light furniture of a southern resort design are best suited for green properties in a natural style.
The gazebo with two solid walls on the leeward side resembles a Dollhouse and is appropriate on a plot in a rustic style.
By the way, the most popular options are closed gazebos with large panoramic Windows. And this choice is not surprising, because such a design can be used around the clock and throughout the year, especially if you bring electricity for lighting and connecting heating devices.
However, it is worth noting that on a tiny plot, a solid house will look too massive. For such green properties, light gazebos are more suitable, for example, an open structure made of wood or a forged version.
In General, for a comfortable stay of four people, a building with an area of about 5-7 m² is enough. Of course, there are also more spacious garden pavilions up to 20 m², but keep in mind that the larger the size and more complex the design, the more expensive the construction will cost.
Tip: octagonal models with the same quadrature are more spacious than traditional quadrilateral models. And there are more opportunities to design such a non-standard area in an original way.
The location in the garden depends on what effect the gazebo should produce: in an open area, for example, at the end of a path, on a hill or in the middle of a lawn, the building will immediately attract attention and become the “star” of the garden scene. But this option is only good if the site is fenced with a solid high fence, otherwise you will have to rest under the gaze of neighbors and passers-by.
A white pavilion with a grey roof is located in the sunniest part of the plot and is visible from any point of the garden. If the weather allows, you can spend your leisure time just under a tree, otherwise-move to a glassed-in building.
If the main task of the gazebo is to serve as a secluded place to relax, you should choose a more private area, for example, among the lush vegetation closer to the border of the site or in the corner — here you can retire and fully relax.
The wall of the utility block can be used as a support for an improvised gazebo made of a screen woven from a vine and an awning instead of a canopy.
A greenhouse in the cold season perfectly copes with the role of a full-fledged recreation place. Here you can hide from the wind and rain, and on Sunny autumn days enjoy the warmth of the air heated to a comfortable temperature.
However, you should not completely hide the house, because it is not only a haven for relaxation, but also one of the main decorations of the garden. For the same reason, vegetation should not block the view, that is, it is appropriate to break a flower garden of herbaceous perennials with low shrubs nearby.
Tip: if the gazebo is somewhat rustic for the title of the main accent and is lost against the background of colorful plantings, it can be “decorated” with vines or painted in a bright color.
The wrought-iron gazebo turned into a cozy tent thanks to the maiden’s grapes. True, you can only hide here from prying eyes, but not from the weather.
Finally, choose a place where the gazebo offers a view of the entire site or at least a beautifully designed separate part of it.
