9 Extravagant Custom Gazebos
Gazebos are small or medium pavilion type structures that are very
popular for many different reasons, they are commonly seen in parks,
gardens, as well as in backyards. They are standalone
structures in most instances, but there are many that have one side
attached to a building or other structure such as garden walls, but no matter what they always help to
enhance the appearance of any landscape. Gazebos are also great
protection from the sun on hot summer days, and they can be used for
entertaining guests, having a BBQ, or even just relaxing and reading a
book in the shade that the gazebo provides.
