Do you have a gazebo? They are so useful for a number of things, including assembling furniture or sheds in the garden if the weather isn’t great! Their main use though in my opinion is for garden parties and eating outside. A gazebo is a great temporary way of adding that extra space, having fun and feeling like you are on holiday all in one!

Seven reasons you should get a gazebo to eat outdoors

Whilst we are looking at building a garden room I am also considering buying a gazebo for the garden to ensure we can use our outdoor space all year. Here are ten reasons I think you should consider a gazebo so that you can enjoy eating outdoors.

Rain doesn’t have to stop the party

If you are enjoying food or drinks in the garden and there is a light shower you won’t need to worry.

With a gazebo, you should be able to all get shelter under the gazebo briefly and carry on enjoying your time outdoors.

It makes cooking easier

Cooking is easier under a gazebo, especially if, like us, you use an electric method such as teppanyaki grills.

The gazebo provides a little shelter from the wind and stops the food from cooling as fast as you are cooking it!

A gazebo offers privacy

Do you have nosey neighbours or children in an opposite house that sit and watch you out of the window whenever they are in your garden?

Using a gazebo with optional sides means you can be as open or as private as you like. This is great for keeping nosey neighbours from seeing what you are doing but still being open to the weather a little.

It can be decorated for the event

If you want to use a gazebo to celebrate a birthday, Christening or similar in the garden then it is easy to decorate a pop-up gazebo to any theme and make it look great.

It means that a party in the garden seems so much more formal, better designed and it keeps the mess outside!

Take it camping

If you are going camping a pop-up gazebo is a brilliant way to enable you to eat outside whatever the weather without being cramped in the tent.

It can also be used to relax or play board games with that extra space that is easily put up and down when needed. If you have a group of you with a few tents it means you can all eat together too.

Outside date nights

When you think of eating outside it is easy to think of family meals or parties but a gazebo is also perfect to set up for a date night. Leave the kids or teens inside knowing they are safe and sit outside with your own pop-up-style restaurant.

A great way to chat as a couple and do something a bit different without spending money on a meal out. Cook a fakeaway and enjoy your nice meal in the garden with fairy lights and peace and quiet!

A gazebo is cheaper than a garden room

Whilst a garden room is a great investment it may not be something you can afford at the moment and it is a permanent structure. If you are undecided about using the garden more or don’t have the budget for a garden room then a pop-up gazebo is absolutely perfect.

Using a gazebo with optional sides you can have a garden room whenever you need one without having the expense and building work of a permanent garden room.

How to choose a good gazebo

Before you rush out and buy a gazebo there are a few things you should consider. It will ensure you are not overspending or buying one that you never use.

Alongside that, you will be sure to get the best one for your needs. A good search online should help you find a High-Quality pop-up gazebo (UK), be sure to add the UK to any search so you don’t waste time looking at ones in other countries!

Check brand reviews too so you are buying from a reputable company and there is no risk of you getting conned. It is a lot of money to spend so choose the brand and payment methods wisely.

Measure your garden. It may be easy to think that a 3m by 3m gazebo is perfect but will that fit the space adequately? Ensure when you measure you take into account anything which can’t be moved such as rotary washing lines.

Consider how it will be secured. Look at the options available in your space. Do you need a gazebo with weights or one with ropes and pegs or both? Looking at your garden and the size of the gazebo you are considering should help you choose this.

Think about the sides. Do you want removable sides so that you can add them when needed but remove them if they are not? Check how easy the sides are to add and remove and store.

Is it waterproof? I know this sounds silly but some gazebos are designed just for the summer and are not waterproof. You can usually get a good one that is waterproof and ensure it is available for you to use all year round.
