Gazebos Can Take You Over the Rainbow

By: Kathy Moran

In the beloved classic, “The Wizard of Oz,” Dorothy learned, after searching somewhere “over the rainbow” for her heart’s desire, that true happiness lay in her own backyard. In the lightning-fast pace of modern society, with work hours getting longer, tempers getting shorter, and the expense of traveling getting downright ridiculous, many people wistfully regard that revelation as pure fantasy. There is, however, a growing faction of people who have learned Dorothy’s lesson, and now spend blissful hours in their own backyards, in idyllic retreats, called gazebos. What is everybody else waiting for? It could be that, as is often the case, they think that owning a gazebo is an impossible dream; or, perhaps, that getting one involves a complicated process, and they don’t know where to start. Sadly, many give up before they realize not only that it’s possible, but that they have always had the power to make their dreams come true, no ruby slippers required. You can, too. And, while not quite as simple as clicking your heels together, it takes only a few clicks of your mouse to bring you one step closer to your personal Eden, which awaits you at Naturally, everyone has a different idea of the perfect gazebo. For some, it will be a haven of solitude, where they can quietly enjoy their gardens. Others may want to use it for outdoor entertaining. Many people will equip their gazebos with heat, electricity, plumbing, and other creature comforts, and use them as guest houses or cottages. Those who want their gazebos simply for the picturesque beauty that they bring to the landscape may turn them into elaborate arbors. What’s the best use for them? All of the above. One of the great things about gazebos is that they can be decorative, fanciful, and practical, all at the same time. Of course, there are certain factors that should be taken into account when choosing a gazebo, to ensure that it is ready for its intended use. For instance, if you are going to turn it into a summerhouse, consider the placement of electrical fixtures, and make sure that you have enough outlets installed. You can also have some tables and benches built in, for added convenience. Don’t forget about the weather, either. Rain, snow, and wind all take a toll on outdoor structures, so be sure to choose a gazebo constructed from a material that is appropriate for your region. At, you’ll find a selection of gazebos in every size, style, shape, and material, to serve any purpose, fit every budget, and withstand all kinds of weather, to give you a lifetime of enjoyment.
