Square Gazebo Designs
If you want to build a classical construction but you don’t have a large budget, we recommend you consider building a nice pavilion. Therefore, we recommend you to make the structure out of metal or wood and to attach fabric to protect the surface from bad weather.
If you really want to impress the loved ones, we recommend you to set the pavilion on a level surface paved with flagstone. Choose appropriate colors that match the style of your garden.
Alternatively, you could build a basic pergola with an exquisite design. If you afford the cost of the materials (weather-resistant lumber such as: pine, cedar or redwood) you can get the job done by yourself in just a few weekends.
Plan everything from the very beginning, making sure you adjust the dimensions of the pergola to your needs. See HERE a detailed article about this woodworking project.
If you want to build a regular-shaped gazebo you should consider making it square. Although a square gazebo doesn’t look as good as an octagonal construction it requires significantly lower skills and materials to get the job done.
