A gazebo is a round or octagonal structure with a floor, roof and optional sides.
It can provide a private place to relax and socialize, as well as protection from sun and rain.
A gazebo can increase your home’s resale value and help you attract a buyer in the future.
Hardwood is the most commonly used gazebo building material, but vinyl and aluminum last longer.
Choose a gazebo that is large enough for people to gather, but not so large that it overwhelms the yard.
You can buy a simple DIY gazebo kit or hire a carpenter to build a larger and more elaborate gazebo for you.
