Welcome to our gallery featuring a variety of cozy, screened-in gazebos!
Outdoor gatherings with friends and family are always a good time. There are many reasons to gather your friends and family in your backyard, including parties, holidays, and even simple summertime cookouts.
When you hold these kinds of events outdoors, it’s always nice to have a space to center them around. This is where gazebos come into play. A shady place to relax is always welcome during a family cookout. A quality gazebo can enhance the value of your backyard space as a premier destination to hang out. People will want to spend much more time in your beautiful yard when it is comfortable.
However, when you spend so much time outside bugs are unavoidable. Some locations are worse than others when it comes to pests and insects, but everyone can relate to an unwanted mosquito attack on an outdoor cookout or party. It’s no fun at all to have pesky insects spoil your good time.
This is why there are many kinds of gazebos that come with nets and screens. These screens cut down on the bugs that may interlope on your time spent enjoying your backyard.
All types of gazebos come equipped with screens, and there are even some screens that you can buy separately to attach to gazebos that do not have screens. Some gazebo screens are nets that can be folded back or tied out of the way, while others are built into a frame and act as walls to the gazebo with fully functional doors. Find the style of gazebo that appeals most to you and that you think will be most effective on the insect population in your area.
Budget gazebos can be fairly inexpensive, but only come with few features. You can find low end budget gazebos for as little as $500. The average cost of a gazebo with all of the features that you will want for a long time ranges between $1,500 and $2,000. If you are looking to go all out and invest in a really advanced and involved gazebo you can potentially spend upward toward $10,000!
