What is Bamboo Gazebo
Like its name suggests, a bamboo gazebo is a gazebo made out of bamboo. The small free-standing roofed structure is a very popular garden and backyard feature and can be used for various purposes, most often for hosting friends and family, as an outdoor living space and to enhance the garden. Traditional gazebos are typically made of wood because it sort of blends with the garden scenery. Bamboo gazebos are relatively new in Europe but are becoming increasingly popular due to outstanding properties as well as natural beauty of bamboo.
Bamboo gazebos are made entirely of bamboo including the floor and the roof. They come in various styles, shapes and sizes, and are typically slightly raised above the ground. A bamboo gazebo is open from all sides but it is possible to add shades to the sides. Like other types of gazebos, bamboo gazebos are an excellent solution for hosting guests or simply to relax and admire the beauty of your garden. However, bamboo gazebos can be also used to store garden tools, create more privacy in your garden and to enclose a spa or hot tub. Also, they look great near ponds and other “special” sites in the garden giving it an additional value and beauty. They are both useful and visually appealing giving a garden a touch of Asia which is great if having an Asian-style garden. However, bamboo gazebos look beautiful in other garden styles as well because they are available in many different styles and designs. In addition, it is also possible to have it custom-made if none of the available ones seems to fit with your garden.
The thing that has made bamboo gazebos so popular in the recent years are the properties of bamboo and convenience in compare to other materials. Bamboo is extremely durable, weather-resistant, requires virtually no care and can be used to make both exotic and classical gazebos which makes it a perfect choice if you do not want to spend much time for maintenance that is hard to avoid with other materials. Bamboo gazebo serves its purpose without requiring anything “in return”. You will not regret choosing a bamboo gazebo if you are looking for a gazebo that is both convenient and aesthetically appealing because bamboo tends to retain its “fresh” appearance for a number of years without the need to use any paint or protection of any kind but it is crucial that it was treated for termites and other wood-boring insects.
Finding a bamboo gazebo that fits perfectly into your garden or backyard should not be a problem because they come in just about all styles and sizes. The cost depends on several factors including the size, design and manufacturer, and can cost you from couple of hundred to several thousands of pounds. It is also possible to build it on your own if having a good plan or good instructions but it is worth to keep in mind that it is not as easy as it may seem at a first glance. If you want to have an unique bamboo gazebo, it may be better to hire a professional unless you are absolutely sure that you know what you are doing.
