If you have decided on constructing a gazebo in your yard and have not yet made up your mind about which type to build, why not consider a bent willow gazebo? Several characteristics of this type gazebo make it an excellent choice for a perfect little backyard hideaway for your family, friends, or maybe even just for yourself.
For starters, willow wood is a highly sustainable product, making it Earth-friendly and a high scorer on environmentalists lists everywhere. Easy to grow and faster than many other types of wood, willow trees make a great product for the casual, relaxed look many people look for in outdoor items.
The natural growth habit of weeping willow (Salix babylonia) makes it perfect for creating bent wood products. That same gracefully curving characteristic lends itself to a natural beauty sought after in informal, outside furniture and accessories.
Take a moment and just imagine the relaxed ambience of a canopy covered gazebo of bent willow in which to lounge about on a warm summer evening. It just does not get much more pleasant, right? Add to that perhaps several gazebo sun panels affixed to the ceiling from which to bask in the warmth of early spring sunshine as you sip your morning coffee and what have you got? A small piece of paradise, right in your own backyard!
A quick search online reveals a number of online retailers who sell kits and materials to construct bent willow gazebos. Plans range anywhere from a few dollars on up to several hundred, depending upon the extent to which you want to elaborate on a basic gazebo structure. Of course, the other alternative is to hire a contractor to build one for you, costing more in the short run, perhaps, but also a way in which to have a guarantee to fall back on in case something goes wrong.
Whichever way you choose to go, building one yourself or hiring it done, you will be glad to have the easygoing appeal of a bent willow gazebo in your own backyard. So what are you waiting for? Time is wastingand another summer is just around the corner!
