Korinna Kriemhild. Patio & Pergola. March 05th , 2017.
First decide where on your patio you would like the gazebo to be situated. For small to mid-size patios, the corner is a great place to put a gazebo. It will be out of the way, saving space, yet still displayed prominently enough to be an accent people will notice. Large patios give you more flexibility. If you want to put the gazebo right in the very middle of your patio, then by all means, do it. You can 'justify' such placement by arranging surrounding patio furniture accordingly.
Some patio gazebos simply sit on top of the patio. If this is the case, be sure that it is heavy enough not to blow away in the wind! Again, consult the manufacturer. The best freestanding gazebos are metal ' preferably wrought iron ' since they are usually quite. Even if your metal gazebo has a canvas roof, chances are that only the strongest and most particular of hurricanes will disturb it.
A patio is a great place to cultivate plants and flowers. Buy or make containers and choose some attractive plants for your patio area. Golden Cane palms do well in large pots and ferns are very attractive in hanging baskets. If you want some colour, look out for Camellias, Begonias, Kangaroo Paws, and Bromeliads. All do well in containers and patios. So long as you remember to water your containers and baskets, you can look forward to a summer of greenery.
Shade structures were once all made from canvas. However, today there are many colourful acrylic fibres that are woven together to make shade cloths. The cloths are long lasting and tough, making damage from wind or storm unlikely. The closeness of the weave creates different levels of protection against the sun, giving the consumer yet more choice about the amount of protection desired - and cost, too.
