Do you love the outdoors, but hate sitting in the hot sun? A steel gazebo could be just the thing for you. Featuring sturdy steel frames topped with UV-shielding fabric canopies, these outdoor gazebos are a beautiful addition to any landscape. If you want to create a more open-air feeling, leave off the fabric canopy and hang flower pots from the steel upper frames, and train lush vines of ivy up the sides.
Outdoor gazebos come in aluminum as well, and these can make nice temporary gazebos for entertaining, but steel makes a much better material for permanent year-round structures, since it is more rigid and stands up better in high winds.
Wood outdoor gazebos are favored by many people, but remember that they are prone to termites, wood rot, paint chipping and cracking
Outdoor steel frame gazebos are available in many shapes and styles, so you are sure to find one to fit your garden or yard. There are 4-sided designs, 5-sided and all the way up to large 12-sided structures, not to mention the irregular shaped ones like rectangles and ovals. These all can be found in traditional, contemporary, and Victorian styles.
Most steel gazebos are simple to assemble outdoors, and all gazebos make the ideal spot to take pleasure in a day spent outdoors without distressing yourself about sun damage, wind, weather or bugs.
