Spruce Up Your Backyard With a Gazebo, Pergola, or Canopy From Wayfair
Summertime is here, and if you love spending time outdoors, your backyard is probably your little slice of paradise. Whether you have a cute garden that needs tending to often or a patio setup perfect for hosting, there's nothing like spending time in your outdoor space embracing nature and reveling in the warm weather. However, as much as we love basking in the sun, we appreciate some much-needed shade. Wayfair has a ton of great gazebo and canopy options that will completely transform your backyard into an elevated space while providing strategically placed shaded areas.
Adding a gazebo, pergola, or a canopy to your outdoor space can help keep you cool during the uncomfortably high temperatures. They are even great for creating a secluded seating area featuring an outdoor rug, fairy lights, a fire pit, and throw pillows for a cozier vibe. Some of these options are also equipped with netting that will keep flies, bugs, and other critters away from you and your guests. You can even have them placed above dining areas or in the grass to create your own little whimsical space. We found a variety of styles and designs ranging from contemporary and modern to farmhouse chic. Shop our top picks ahead.
