Pool-Gazebo-300x198Gone are the days of a traditional gazebo — sure they still exist and are a great addition to the backyard, but now you have options. Between pergolas and wrought-iron gazebos, these classic pieces have a new spin that will add a traditional yet modern element to your poolscape. Gazebos can be elaborate or simple, depending on your taste, and they can be smaller or larger, depending on how many people you want to be able to fit underneath. They can be made strictly of wood or have an awning made of canvas — you decide! There is a type for every pool. Think about what you want your backyard to say when people walk outside and go from there. Adorn your gazebo with luminaries, place cozy furniture around inviting family and friends to take a seat and incorporate wireless speakers to add some music. The options are endless and the perfect way to add a little bit of tradition. To build your new pool and spa, contact The Woodlands Pool Builder, St. Croix Custom Pools for a free consultation.
