A gazebo can be a wonderful touch in a garden, making it feel more homely and adding to its appearance. It could be easier to build one than you might think. You can buy the parts separately or, if you want the most comprehensive and easy to build option, choose a gazebo kit. This will come with everything you need to put your gazebo together. Here is a basic overview of what you will need to do:
- Position the gazebo supporting poles and anchor them to the ground. You will usually use cement for this.
- Put up the bracing beams. These will take the weight of everything else so they need to be big. Ask someone else to help you.
- Fit the roof. Depending on how big the kit is, the roof beams may come pre-assembled or flat packed.
- Paint the gazebo. Choose the finish that suits your garden and surroundings.
