Let’s see what you need. You need wood but not any kind of wood. The wood can be bought at any construction market in your area.
There all kinds of wood but not any wood is suitable for building a yard gazebo. For example, we advise you not to use oak or pin because they are not suitable for outdoor buildings. You should go for pressure treated wood because this one is the best. Every gazebo should a have a railing and for this, you can use cedar or cypress wood. Also for the floor, you can use stones because it will be better than wood. You can also cover the stones with some wood which is tough on dirt or you can leave the stones like they are. This is a matter of taste.
The roof. The roof can be built using several materials. Some people choose plastic or glass while other choose metal. The metal material makes the gazebo roof more resistant. If you choose a metal material you can be sure your roof will last up to 25 years. Of course, it is more expensive but you will not change it in time. If you want a cheaper way to build the roof you can always choose glass or plastic. It doesn’t mean you will choose a bad material. For example, the plastic or glass roof comes with UV resistant to protect the building from the sunlight. There are a lot of others features that the plastic or window material have. It’s lightweight and it is easy to assemble.
