Do you have a romanticized vision of a gazebo in your yard? Before getting too carried away, consider some practicalities, like cost, the size of your yard, the size of the structure, cost and availability of materials and who is going to build it. Depending on the scope of the project, you may have to get plans approved by your city, which could take months. Also think about the foundation, water drainage, plumbing, electricity, where it will be located and what kind of activities you’d like to do in your gazebo.
Don’t get discouraged: any project requires time and planning. While you’re working on details like a budget and who will build it, enjoy these beautiful and diverse gazebo designs.
