Do You Need a Pop Up Gazebo? Yes You Do

Mickey | Patio and Garden | Friday, January 14th, 2011

If this summer ends up like last summer, you WILL need a gazebo to help you make the most of it. A pop up gazebo gives you shelter, just in case, and shade from the hot sun. They erect very quickly, usually about ten minutes.

Gazebos start at ten feet square (3m x 3m) and go up to 3m x 6m (10ft x 20ft). The bigger one is nearly as easy to put up and is worth the extra cost if your garden is big enough. It gives everyone somewhere to congregate and chat, just as they would in your kitchen if you had a party inside your house.

A large gazebo will give you space for a table, chairs and even a fridge to keep the beer and soft drinks cool. It means people can stay out of the sun and not be too obvious about it.

In these times of recession you may plan to augment your income by selling scones or vegetables at your local country market or farmers’ market. If the farmers’ market is outside you will need a pop up gazebo to keep the sun and the rain off whatever you are selling.

Garden centres and DIY stores sell pop up gazebos, mostly in Spring. Even Aldi and Lidl have them among their weekly special offers. At the end of summer is the best time to pick up a gazebo for less, when shops reduce them to clear the shelves for Christmas stock.

Assembling a gazebo is child’s play. Certainly much easier than trying to puzzle out a frame tent. If there are two people they can have a pop up gazebo unpacked and assembled in ten minutes, less with practice.

All the poles can only fit together in one way and they are colour-coded too make it even easier.
