Adding a gazebo is one of best ways to extend your outdoor living space, for protecting us from the sun and rain, relaxing while enjoy the cozy and as an area for kid’s playhouses. What are the best way of gazebo's placement to maximize its function? these are the secret of the placement! Positioned correctly, your gazebo will add dimension to your landscape. Positioned incorrectly, your gazebo will make your backyard look disjointed and junky.
Deborah Boland said that there are some do’s and don’t to help you get it right!
1. Do Place Gazebos at the End of a Path
Gazebos look wonderful and mysterious as a termination point at the end of a garden path. Visitors get the wonderful feeling that they are being drawn into the backyard and that makes it feel inviting and cozy.
2. Do Choose a Spot Close to Water
If your home is on a lake or pond, take advantage of it. Position your outdoor gazebo on the point that overlooks the water. You could also try placing your gazebo near a backyard waterfall or a trickling fountain and enjoy watching the birds splash about. Or how about by your pool?
One family I know built a patio gazebo at the deep end of their rock waterfall swimming pool. It was designed so that you could easily remove the railing on the pool side and dive right off the gazebo into the water.
3. Don’t Place a Garden Gazebo in the Middle of Your Yard
A gazebo in the middle of a tiny yard will look like it’s been dropped from outer space and will overpower the yard, but as the centrepiece of a grand estate, it can anchor and unite the space quite beautifully. It’s all a matter of balance.
