What Wood for a Garden Gazebo?

In modern times, gazebos also have many enthusiasts. Unsurprisingly, they fulfill many functions – they are a great place for relaxation, can be used for gatherings with friends, and provide protection from the sun on hot days, allowing for outdoor rest. Nonetheless, they are an investment for years, so when looking for durability and aesthetics, choosing the right material that will ensure the gazebo’s longevity and unique appearance becomes crucial.

Choosing Wood for a Durable and Aesthetic Garden Gazebo

Gazebos are structures exposed to numerous atmospheric factors from warm sun rays in the summer, through strong winds in autumn, to snowfall in winter. Of course, we also cannot forget about insects, which, to our dismay, might find such a structure appealing. So, what boards are best to choose to enjoy a home relaxation zone? Wood charred using the Shou Sugi Ban method stands out not only with its unique appearance but also with exceptional resistance to atmospheric conditions and pests, making it an ideal choice for garden gazebos.

Here are the main advantages of charred boards:

  • High resistance: Charring with fire and impregnation with special protective agents provide the wood with resistance to atmospheric conditions, from the sun to snow, and protection against pests. Burning cellulose (which is nourishment for insects and fungi) makes charred wood resistant to rot and pests.
  • Unique appearance:The Shou Sugi Ban method gives the wood a unique texture and color, adding character to any gazebo.
  • Low heat absorption:These boards do not heat up quickly, which is crucial on hot days, ensuring comfortable rest.
  • Durability without effort:Wood charred with this method does not require annual impregnation, meaning less effort to keep the gazebo in excellent condition.
