A gazebo is a structure that is built outdoors. Unlike regular infrastructures, it only has a roof and no walls; it has an open space or view. Typically, it is made of wooden or metallic stands. Usually, it is built permanently to add a more relaxing and refreshing area to rest in a backyard or garden. Its shape is either hexagonal or octagonal.
Contrary to the usual and permanent wooden or metallic gazebo, portable gazebos are also available. These are perfect for those who want to add a temporary shelter or for people who like to travel and camp. Setting up your gazebo is very easy, and you can certainly bring it anywhere you go.
Things to consider and remember when using portable gazebos:
- Surface: You have to consider the surface or location where you will set up your gazebo. You will have to thrust it underground and make it stand firm and strong, but portable gazebos also often come with sandbag leg weight bags that you can use as a foundation, making it suitable to stand in surfaces like grass, concrete, etc.
- Cleaning and maintenance: You should clean each part of the material with warm water, soap, and a soft sponge. Do not scrub or clean too hard because it can damage the materials’ PVC or waterproof coating.
- Height: Usually, the legs of a portable gazebo are adjustable. You can make it as high or as low you want. This feature is ideal because it adds versatility and more space when you adjust the height.
- Leaving it overnight: Portable gazebos are only temporary. They are not as firm and sturdy as the built-in gazebos made with more permanent materials. Thus, it is recommended that you do not leave your gazebos overnight unless there will be people to look after them during that time. Also, gazebos are mainly used for sun protection. It is not recommended to use it when there are strong winds and rain. It is in fact strong and durable, but even the strongest structures can’t withstand heavy wind and rain sometimes.
Indeed, gazebos have a great use for recreation and even business. You can set it up when you want to invite some friends over for an outdoor barbeque party. It is also great for business; you can use it to set up your stall in a bazaar. It is very easy to set up in a few minutes; you can have a temporary shelter already. The canopy is also often made with high-quality polyester with a dark coating that ensures better sun protection.
Whether you want to build your permanent gazebo in your backyard or buy a temporary one, either have a huge set of benefits. The permanent ones are ideal for adding a more relaxing spot to your home. They are a good investment since it adds another great feature to your land. On the other hand, temporary gazebos are ideal when moving and traveling from different places. They are very handy, especially when you need to store or place some things and equipment. They also provide the same sun protection as permanent ones.
