Garden gazebo

Garden

Gazebos can be either square or polygonal, and have a wall full of the openwork wall glazing or rattan. Often the wall is only half the amount of the gazebo, and the roof support poles or narrow, openwork panels. Constituent slats may be arranged diagonally or at right angles.

The roof lies mostly on a wooden shingle or bitumen. You can also put there thatch, but it requires the use of a stronger support structure. Thatch is in fact impressive and durable, but very heavy.

Pavilions are made almost entirely of wood, which must be impregnated against mildew, fungi and insects.

A special kind of gazebos are made of steel, lacquered bars. They do not have a roof or walls. These are the openwork designs, but can be very strong and sometimes impressively decorated. They are used to fill the vines. Only when they are created, a chance occurs that a beautiful green design is made.

The pavilion, or a covering

Pavilion is a more economical form of gazebos – as it has a roof, but is devoid of the side walls and floor.

The simplest structures are of powder coated steel tubes that support the roof of the impregnated, waterproof fabric. Pavilion of steel is easy moved and manoeuvred to another location, and can be easily stored inside for the winter.
