There are different ways to add life to your yard and garden. That includes placing water features, plants, patios and garden structures. Gazebos are one of the mostly used garden structures. Gazebos are freestanding or attached to a garden wall, roofed, and open on all sides. They provide shade, shelter, ornamental features in a landscape, and a place to rest.
