A perfect way to accent your garden is putting a garden gazebo. How convenience it is to be able to walk along the path between the koi pond and the flowers, pausing to rest on a bench inside a gazebo, enjoying  the hedges and the willow tree. Gazebo shade will comfort you, and its architecture will add a  special geometric touch to your garden.

First step in creating garden gazebo is choosing your gazebo material (wood, metal, or vinyl). Wood is the most common choice, it goes well with natural environment. Wood gazebo is available in pine, cedar, and redwood. The softest wood is Pine, ages to a rich yellow, and complements surrounding evergreens. Taalking about sturdiness, Cedar is the best. It is less prone to rot, and ages to a gray-brown. But if you look for longest-lasting wood, then American redwood is the answer. It also has the darkest  wood color. Other woods can also be used, but those three are the most common.

Metal gazebo comes in cast aluminum or steel and wrought iron. If you want your garden gazebo to add a lovely dark and long lasting effect you can choose steel and wrought iron. These kind of gazebos are often open-roofed. Vinyl material comes in white or black. Similar with wood and metal gazebos, the gazebos come in a variety of shapes and styles. You can put trellis walls for a cottage feeling.

You can get enclosed garden gazebo for enhancing the gazebo usability especially in harsher weather conditions. This kind of gazebo can be totally enclosed, with solid walls and tinted windows or partially enclosed, with partitions and movable screens.

Garden gazebo is an inviting structure for rest, meeting up with other people, meditation or to enjoy the weather. You can start to choose which gazebos that will suit your garden.
