Top 4 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying a Gazebo Canopy

Aug 11, 2008
You decided to add a gazebo canopy to your landscape, now you need to ask yourself some questions to make sure you end up with a gazebo that is just right for you. You want to look at what you will be using your gazebo for, what shape/style you want, what its function will be, and where it will be located.

What will your gazebo be used for?

How are you going to be using your Gazebo? Will it be a focal point or will it be an extension of your home? Will it be something you look at, or something you spend time every day in?

What Shape or Style is Right for You?

You also need to think about the shape, size and style of your gazebo. You want it to blend in with your current home style so it looks like it belongs. If you have a shaker style house and add a Victorian gazebo it will not look very good at all. You want it to match your houses style, so take that into consideration when you are choosing the shape and style of your gazebo.

How will you use your Gazebo?

This may seem the same as the first, but it's a little different. You want to think about how you will be using your gazebo. Will you be using it to sit quietly and watch birds or do you think you will be using it for meals, family gatherings, watching TV, a nice outdoor office? These decisions will help you decide basic elements like adding electricity or not, adding removable windows or using misquito netting. The more you plan to use your gazebo the more user friendly you want to make it.

Where will it be located from the house?

Where will your gazebo be located? Will it be off in the distance near a pond, or back in the garden as a focal point? Will it be right next to the house or even on an existing patio?

Answering this question should help you answer the question of size needed. If you are only using it as a focal point you may be better off getting a smaller gazebo that seats only one or two. If you are using your gazebo near the house you will likely find you are using it more than you ever expected and you will probably want to go with a larger model. You may originally size it just for a table and chairs, and then find out you want it expanded to hold a seating area as well since you are spending so much time out there.
