Are you looking to build or buy a large gazebo or just a small one for your backyard? The size of the gazebo you will get depends on a few factors, including the size of your yard, the purpose of the gazebo, and your budget. Of course, the biggest you can be will depend on the size of the available space in your yard, but as we said, other factors also come into play!
That said, let’s talk about the factors you need to consider to build not only the biggest gazebo you can build but one that makes sense! But first, let’s go into the legal side of a large gazebo:
Do I Need Permission to Build a Large Gazebo?
A Gazebo does not need planning permission as long as it follows the general guidelines, which include having a total floor area that does not exceed 15m2, being any more than 2 meters from the property’s boundary, and being no taller than 2.5 meters if placed within 2 meters of the boundary fence. Additionally, the Gazebo cannot have an antenna and cannot be used as a sleeping area or as living accommodation.
In certain circumstances, the conditions for building a gazebo can be overridden. For example, if you own a listed building or if you want to build a gazebo in an area of natural interest or beauty, you will need to get planning permission from the government.
How Do I Pick the Right Gazebo Size?
When choosing a gazebo, one of the most important factors to consider is size. You want to make sure that the gazebo is large enough to comfortably accommodate your needs but not so large that it overwhelms your needs to help you determine the best size for your gazebo.
Here are a few factors to keep in mind when making your decision:
1. The Size of Your Yard or Outdoor Space
You want to make sure that the gazebo you choose will fit comfortably in the space you have available. Measure the space before you start shopping to get an idea of the maximum size gazebo that will fit.
2. How Many People You Want to Be Able to Accommodate
Gazebos come in a variety of sizes, from small, intimate spaces for two people to large, open areas that can accommodate a crowd. Think about how many people you want to be able to comfortably fit in your gazebo when making your choice.
3. What You Want to Use the Gazebo For
If you plan to use your gazebo for entertaining, you’ll want to make sure it’s large enough to comfortably fit your guests. If you’re looking for a quiet space to enjoy the outdoors, a smaller gazebo may be all you need.
Keep these factors in mind when choosing a gazebo, and you’ll be sure to find the perfect size for your needs.
Now that you know how to pick the right size gazebo, you can start shopping around for the perfect one. Keep in mind the size of your yard and the number of people you plan to have using the gazebo at one time. You should also keep in mind the type of gazebo you want and the style you prefer. With all of these factors in mind, you’ll be able to find or build the perfect gazebo!
