Ways You Can Spruce Up Your Gazebo

Having a gazebo on your property is a great way to transform your backyard from a plain open space to a space where you can relax and entertain guests. However, over time, you may find yourself spending less time at your gazebo as it succumbs to disrepair that comes with aging. Instead of leaving your gazebo to develop into an eyesore, you should consider giving it a facelift. There are a number of building supplies that you could use to enhance the curb appeal of your gazebo and make it an attractive space all over again. Here are some little known ways that you could consider to spruce up your gazebo.

Install screening on your gazebo

Typically, gazebos are not enclosed with any walls. Although this is great for ensuring ventilation, it can become tricky to spend time at your gazebo when the weather is not favourable. In addition to this, if your backyard shares a fence with your neighbours, chances are you will not enjoy much privacy on your gazebo either. The easiest way to remedy these problems is by installing screening on your gazebo. One of the main benefits of these types of building supplies is that they come in a range of materials and colours. As such, not only are you guaranteed of finding a material that will match the gazebo, you also have unlimited options when it comes to complementing the aesthetics of the gazebo.

When choosing a screen, you can opt to have fully opaque screens to ensure complete privacy, or you could choose a mesh screen that will let the cool breeze into your gazebo. Screening is also an ideal way of ensuring that pests such as mosquitoes do not invade your gazebo, especially during the summer months.

Change the roofing of your gazebo

The roof is one of the first aspects of your gazebo that will begin to exhibit signs of disrepair. This is because it is one of the more distinguishable features of this structure. If your roofing is looking worse for wear, then you should consider replacing it to give the entire gazebo a face-lift. Your choice of roofing will not only enhance the curb appeal of the gazebo, but it will also set the atmosphere and style of the structure. For instance, if you are looking to create a tropical feel, you could opt for thatch building supplies for your roof rather than modern materials.

Re-landscaping our backyard

When the boys were younger, it was really important to have a lot of grass in the backyard so that they could kick the footy around or chase each other. Now they are older we don't need so much lawn and I want to spend a lot less time watering, fertilising and maintaining the lawn. That's why I am getting the yard landscaped to suit our current lifestyle with a garden that is focused on low maintenance native plants. It's important to make sure that your landscaping is suited to your current lifestyle and looks lovely so that you can enjoy it each day.
