If you're already starting the countdown to Christmas, it's a good time to give your gazebo or garden building a little care before the winter weather sets in.
Here are our Top 5 Tips to get you started...
Autumn winds can bring with them an accumulation of little leaves, twigs, berries and other garden treasures that can get caught in between the grooves of decking, under seats etc and if you're shutting up your Gazebo for the winter it's best to clear these out.
2. Freshen up your canvas and cushions
Many gazebos and garden building owners have our colourful canvas panels and bench cushions. Made from high quality, UV resistant canvas, they will benefit from a freshen up each year. If you aren't using your Gazebo over winter this can be the perfect time to move cushion covers or canvas for a clean. Warm soapy water is all that is needed.
If you haven't added pendant heaters, this is a great time to do this - extending the use of your Gazebo right through the winter period. The design style ensures heat is focused onto the seating areas rather than being dispersed in the air. Order yours here
Whatever type of roof you have, whether Cape Reed Thatch Tiles or Cedar Shingle Roof Tiles, it's well worth brushing down the roof at the end of summer (and after the Autumn/Winter period) to ensure it is free of leaves and looks as pristine as possible. This simple action also enables you to keep your roof in best possible condition.
Winter evenings drawing in means lighting can prove a practical and stylish addition to your Gazebo. The most popular way to light your Gazebo is through the addition of lights on your upright posts, or through the addition of fairy lights around the roof beam. Ensure any lighting used is appropriate for outdoor use and installed by a suitably qualified electrician.
These simple tips for winter will help maintain your gazebo or garden building for years to come, and ensure you can get the most from your life outdoors.
