Picking the best gazebos this summer (May 2020 Updated Review)
There’s an excellent range of gazebos available in the UK and we’ve taken a look at both pop up gazebos which is in more detail in the next article and more traditional fixed gazebos which take longer to erect but are always so much more secure, far more ideal in the event of heavy weather. The best gazebo will be well made, not tear easily, and easy to put up but at the same time provide adequate protection from the elements.
So here is my review of the best gazebos available in the UK today.
1. All Seasons Gazebos 3x3m Heavy Duty, Fully Waterproof Pop up Gazebo, Beige
- Has a ‘pop-up’ design, this means that there is no effort in putting together the gazebo, it barely takes 5 minutes to set it up completely.
- It is recommended for two people to work together, however, one experienced person can do the job of putting up the gazebo just as easily.
- The gazebo has three height settings.
- It can take about 6 chairs under it and is large enough to cover one hot tub.
- The frame, which is heavy duty and rust resistant has several support struts.
- These are all made of 100% steel, thus making the frame not only durable but also authentic.
- The roof is very weather-resistant, the stitchings are super sealed, therefore water cannot penetrate at all. However, it is advisable to put the gazebo away under extremely bad wind conditions.
- Once the roof is put on, there is no need to take it off. It can be stored away with the roof on, and put back into place by pulling the legs out.
- It is important to use the leg weights to keep the gazebo stable.
- The frame comes with a warranty of one year.
