Annandale, VA, June 28, 2019 — A Maryland fill dirt contractor at Dirt Connections recently released a guide on how to build a gazebo for homeowners looking for their next DIY project. Gazebos make a lovely addition to any backyard, adding a touch of elegance and a shady area to sit during warm summer days.
Gazebos come in multiple shapes and sizes, from small squares to large octagons, and the materials you will need — as well as the specific manner of construction — will depend on the type you select. Generally, you will need plywood, screws or other fasteners, metal bards, concrete, a shovel, and a drill. Mark the shape of the gazebo on the grass, then dig holes for the posts and use cement to anchor them. Pour more concrete to create a base. You can then mount the bracing beams to create the closed sides of the gazebo and insert windows, if desired. Add more beams to join the posts at the top and install the roof, which can be covered with corrugated aluminum or fiberglass before the addition of shingles or other covering. Finally, decorate your gazebo with trim, paint, potted plants, and outdoor furniture.
Before building a gazebo, it’s important to level the land on which it will be constructed. This ensures that the gazebo will have a stable foundation and that it will not slant, which can look sloppy and cause breakage. Most contractors recommend the use of fill dirt for this purpose. Fill dirt is made of fine particles with little to no organic matter, making it easy to evenly spread and compact. Once the land has been leveled, you can begin building your gazebo.
