If you love the thought of having somewhere to sit and entertain no matter where you are, the portable gazebo is for you. Here’s everything you need to know.
What is a Portable Gazebo?
A portable gazebo is a structure that is made up of a lightweight yet sturdy metal framework over which a canvas or material roof is fitted. You simply erect the gazebo when it is needed and you can dismantle it and store it away when it is not needed. The steps to erect a portable gazebo are simple – begin by setting the frame, then install the poles. Once this is done, secure the frame and poles using ropes and stakes. You can then stretch the canopy or roof over the frame. To dismantle it, simply follow the instructions in reverse.
Why Buy a Portable Gazebo?
A permanent gazebo may be a beautiful addition to the garden but it is not necessary a practical one. Portable gazebos give you the best of all worlds. One of the best things about them is how versatile they are. You can erect one and then use it as a barbecuing area, as an outdoor party venue, as a temporary shade structure, as an outdoor dining room, as a shelter when camping...whatever you think of, a portable gazebo can be used for it! Portable gazebos can also be located in the perfect position for you. Place it so that the sun doesn’t affect you during the day, or to make the most of the views – it’s up to you.
Portable gazebos are also incredibly cost effective. They are cheap to buy (only a couple of hundred dollars or so) and they will last for a long time with very little care. This is a fraction of the cost of a permanent gazebo and you have the convenience of portability. Portable gazebos are also easy to find. Most hardware stores will stock them but you can also buy them at sporting stores, department stores (Big W or K Mart for example), from furniture stores, and of course, from the internet.
Of course, as the name suggests, portable gazebos are just that, portable. This means that you can take them with you when you move house, making them particularly popular with renters. Not only that, you can relocate them within your garden at any time, allowing you to change your garden as you need. For example, you can move the gazebo to allow you to plant a new veggie bed.
