Top 3 Benefits of a Gazebo

Outdoor Time

top-benefits-gazeboThe best benefit of a gazebo is that it gets you “out there” – in the outdoors – on your own property.

Let’s say you have a nice view to your backyard. You may gaze at it from inside, but rarely go out and enjoy it. Why not? It’s likely because there’s nothing that draws you – no comfortable place that beckons.

There’s something about a sheltered space that is inviting. Is it the shade of the gazebo’s roof, the comfortable benches, or the architectural beauty of the design? For whatever reason, when we see a gazebo, we want to go in it.

Here are the Top 3 Benefits of a Gazebo:

Design Flexibility

Another great thing about a gazebo is its flexibility in terms of design options.

  • You can put your gazebo in a hidden spot that’s private and cozy or in a location convenient to your house.
  • The roof can completely protect you from sun and rain, or it can provide an open-air environment with partial shade.
  • Your gazebo can have no walls or low walls that come up to three or four feet.
  • You can also have screened walls that let in all the sights, sounds and outdoor breezes but keep out mosquitoes.
  • A gazebo’s shape can be octagon, square, round, or even oval.

Diverse Activities

Because it can be an open space or have walls, a gazebo can be used for an amazing variety of activities.

  • An intimate space for quiet conversations.
  • A wedding venue.
  • An outdoor kitchen.
  • A peaceful place to do yoga, weight training, or an exercise video.
  • A protected space for a fire pit.
  • A shelter for your hot tub. At Black Pine Spas, we offer both hot tubs and gazebos that act as spa enclosures.

Enjoying the Moment

A more subtle benefit of having a gazebo is that it gives you a place to do nothing. It gives you a chance to relax and enjoy the moment.
