The purpose of the summer cottage determines its design features, materials for its construction and decoration. Most often, natural wood and metal are used for the frame. Inexpensive roofing materials are suitable for the roof. Transparent fragments of the gazebo make:
- tempered glass (for heavy loads from hail and other precipitation);
- unbreakable plexiglass (prone to scratches);
- transparent flexible slate and other polymers.
The type of building depends on whether it will be used during the cold season.
- If it is being built in a region where there is heavy snowfall in winter, it is better to make a peaked roof, on which the snow cap will not linger..
- A collapsible design is also suitable – the roof is dismantled for the winter
- The arbor in the form of a gallery under the vines is suitable for warm climates. It is advisable to cover these and other climbing plants during severe frosts, in the spring the vines are cut, some flowers are cut off.
- For lovers of winter visits, summer cottages are being built like a glazed house for lunch with barbecues, which are fried nearby.
- A gazebo under polycarbonate or flexible slate can adjoin a blank wall of a house, combining the functions of a covered gallery. It is convenient to cook and dine in the shade here, and houseplants and seedlings will be protected from climatic turmoil..
The aesthetics of the building is an important factor. Better to spend a little more time building it than be content with something second-rate for many years. There are many examples when do-it-yourself designer gazebos become not only a decoration for a summer residence and a source of pride for friends and neighbors.

The successful appearance of the covered structure encourages the transformation of the entire suburban area. But it’s better to start with a landscape design project:
- alleys and paths;
- hedges, flower beds and alpine slides.
Any gazebo should not be just a “gatehouse” to protect the garden from birds and wild animals, which often happens in places far from the city near the forest. The building must fully meet the aesthetic needs of the owners and the ideas of comfort and functionality..

The choice of material for the gazebo
The main materials for building a gazebo include wood, stone, brick and fabric. Wood is preferred for most simple projects. It is enough to protect it from decay and fire. Such gazebos look perfect on suburban areas of any area..
Stone or brick buildings look aesthetically pleasing and serve for more than 50 years. For them, a strip or block foundation is being erected. Often in such gazebos they arrange a barbecue area..
Metal is used for light buildings. They are decorated with elements of artistic forging. The structure frame can be made from a regular profile. The roof in most cases is made of polycarbonate..
The main advantage of metal arbors is that they are suitable for areas with any type of soil..
As a budget option, gazebos use fabric buildings. A canvas is pulled over a metal frame to protect it from wind and summer rain. It is best to use acrylic or awning fabric. The material must be UV resistant.
Lightweight awnings are made of polycarbonate. It is used for both the roof and the walls. The variety of colors and high light transmission make it an excellent material for building a summer gazebo in a suburban area.
The main types of light buildings
The generally accepted classification of summer cottages:
- open structures on supports under a canopy;
- classic structures of a semi-closed type;
- closed buildings (summer kitchens, barbecue or grill houses).
It is advisable to bring water and lighting into the gazebo intended for cooking. Then it will be convenient to use it in any weather, in the daytime evening..
Attention! Professional chefs are often invited to the spacious, well-equipped gazebo to organize a picnic with friends or a family holiday in nature. The usual requirement for hired cooks is hygiene (washbasin with running water) and a well-equipped catering unit – an oven, barbecue, barbecue and a meat cutting table..
When drawing up a project, it is imperative to decide in advance what the design style will be – an important aesthetic component. Bricks are a traditional material for summer cottages. The bases of the gazebos for the personal plot, where everything is built from this material, is best done in one design.

The shape and design of the gazebo in the country depends on personal preferences:
- trapezoid (widest wall to the south for more afternoon shade);
- an elongated gallery with benches along the cobblestone path for climbing plants;
- round rotundas or bungalows with a light roof under reeds on pillars;
- combined type buildings (with adjoining sheds for external benches).
Attention! When planning a cooking center near the gazebo, keep in mind that a building made of flammable materials is dangerous!
The roof and supports of the barbecue building should be made of fireproof materials. Sparks from fire should not hit nearby trees. The gazebo should be built on a tree-free site, or tall trees (especially conifers and with phytoncides) should be removed.
Lightweight constructions in a country garden or backyard for cooking are a popular option. But it is important to take into account all the points in order to prevent a fire in the summer cottage..
The interior equipment of the gazebo varies significantly, and it is tied to its functionality. Most often these are benches or comfortable benches with soft backs for several people..
Today, sofa swings are in vogue, which have become an indispensable attribute of summer relaxation in the garden. A large selection of models with and without awnings is a great opportunity to improve a remote corner of the garden or a new gazebo.

In a spacious building, you can even organize a tiny oasis according to the oriental model. In the center of the octagonal gazebo there is a small fountain with fish in the reservoir. Draped sheets of mattress fabric – an excellent shelter from the summer heat for those sitting on benches with soft seats along the partitions of the gazebo.
Option without textiles – under the roof, you can make carved inserts or gratings for additional shade and luxurious decor. In the center of the gazebo, if there is no fountain, it is convenient to put a table. There is an option to change the content of the building – folding tabletops and light garden furniture.
The classic dimensions of a summer cottage are 3×3 m or 3×4 m, if it is rectangular. A large terrace or covered area, if the space allows, can actually be expanded to 8-16 sq.m., more building materials will be required. But in such an indoor arena, a large soft corner made of natural or artificial rattan and a table with treats for several persons will fit.
According to generally accepted standards, for a comfortable summer pastime, 1.2-2 sq.m. is enough for 1 vacationer. gazebos. The height should be at least 2 meters, so that even the tallest guests are comfortable.

Design of gazebos from the inside
The design of a spacious gazebo is unthinkable without textiles – pillows, curtains and decorative furniture covers. When choosing accessories, you need to focus on the general color scheme. In wooden and brick buildings, metal accessories look best – flower stands, wall lamps, chandeliers.
What is important to know about the construction of a gazebo?
The most comfortable corner of the landscape design for the location of the summer building is considered to be where the gazebo is removed from the main house, but is clearly visible from the yard. A well-paved path or garden path should lead to it. It is better if the design project is handled by a professional who is able to take into account all the important points and wishes of the customer..
If there is only one likely place for the gazebo, and the site is already landscaped, then it makes no sense to start with planning the territory, you can come to grips with designing the structure. But it is important that all buildings are in the same style..
Size and shape are not the main thing, the type of construction determines the materials, costs, scope of work, functionality and design of the gazebo.
A large building requires a solid foundation. It can be columnar or striped. How much it should be buried depends on the soil and the massiveness of the structure. On unstable soils and in swampy regions with flooding, it is better to build on piles.
Floors paved with natural wood look luxurious. But with paving slabs it will turn out cheaper and more practical, especially when the floor area is solid.

When building the foundation of garden pavilions, keep in mind that the soil often contains the roots of nearby trees and other plant inclusions. Have to deal with uprooting stumps or removing large boulders.
Do not rush to take out the stones dug on the site outside the cottage, they can be used for landscape design. The Japanese were the first to think of this, their type of landscaping near the house is called “rock garden”.
Options for summer cottages
The color of landscape design with a gazebo largely depends on the type of construction and the general stylistic solution. For DIY construction, they usually choose structures that are easy to independently assemble from ready-made wooden blocks or weld from metal gratings and pillars.
Those who have artistic skills often decorate their new wooden creation with original decor:
- openwork wood carving;
- objects made of roots, snags and twigs;
- light gratings made of thin strips.
The appearance of the building must correspond to the concept of the architectural ensemble, if the landscaping of the territory was carried out by professionals. Some of the work can be done independently, and responsible units can be entrusted to specialists, such as a gazebo with fairy-tale characters made of artistic concrete.
If you want to fulfill your dream of an aesthetic shaded corner, it is better to limit yourself to a “living gazebo”. At minimal cost, this structure of concrete pillars, angle and wire can be decorated with a peaked slate roof. Fast-growing climbing plants, planted around benches with backs, will quickly decorate a building on a metal frame with flowers.
Solid closed or “winter” gazebos are still a rarity. But it all depends on the imagination of the builder or designer. A small “troll house” (or gnome) on a site in the Scandinavian style, with all the decor and mythical attributes, will look great. Inside there may be a real hearth (stove or fireplace), a table, stools and a couch.
