With the coming of Spring our thoughts turn to warmer weather when you can sit outside and where better than in a gazebo? While you can just settle for a tent like structure that you erect and take down at will, a gazebo built with permanent materials can be a real feature in the landscape. I found this collection of twenty gorgeous gazebo designs over on the Garden Lovers Club website.
When it comes to elaborate garden structures, one of the most complex but useful examples is the venerable?gazebo. There is no other?outdoor home structures that add so much beauty and functionality in a single package, and we?re excited to see the possibilities they present.
With a nice gazebo in your yard or garden, you?ll be able to enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the outdoors while protected from the elements in a comfortable space. Many gazebos provide both shelter and seating, in addition to being a visual anchor for the landscape.?It?s one thing to enjoy your garden from the patio, resting on a bench or wicker chaise against the house, but it?s a whole new experience to relax in a proper gazebo.
These structures cover a wide range of sizes and styles, so there?s bound to be one that?s perfect for nearly any yard and garden. You might prefer one that matches the siding and roof of your home, or you might choose something that truly stands apart. Regardless, we think there are enough interesting options out there to explore together.
Let?s look at some of our favorite garden gazebo designs.
1. Ornate Roof Gazebo
With its railings and support arches done up like an ornate porch fence, this gazebo looks ready to impress. Topped with a light natural wood tile roof in three layers, with a bespoke peak at the top, it?s a subtly complex structure that stands out in stark elegance amidst a garden. A gazebo like this might be best designed to match the roof of your home.
2. Pointed Roof Gazebo
We love the ornate carving on the fence posts wrapping this gazebo, paired with the paper-cutout look of the arches between support pillars above. The pristine white paint contrasts with the earthen foundation, while the rustic wood roof adds a sense of timeless charm. It?s topped with a unique spear design that helps it stand out.
