Gazebos for Utah Landscaping

Gazebos and arbors are popular ways people implement independent structures into their landscaping; both can provide a focal point or a place for plants to grow.

But what’s the difference between a gazebo and an arbor? How are they both different from a pergola? At Cottonwood Landscapes, we can help you see the benefits of the different outdoor structures we offer to our clients and choose the best one for your climate and overall design vision.

    What is a Gazebo?

    A gazebo is a covered structure that stands up by itself; it doesn’t need to be connected to fencing, your house, or other outdoor buildings. They can be a focal point in the grass or can be built into part of your deck to provide shade for outdoor spaces. A gazebo offers shade on a hot summer day in Utah.

    Another unique feature of a gazebo is the integrated seating, such as built-in benches around the interior perimeter. Lattice work can be affixed to the sides of the gazebo to make it more enclosed, or you could design one that’s more open to the elements.

    Homeowners often love to add vegetation to their gazebos, whether in the form of hanging baskets from the roof or by growing plants up the lattice. A gazebo could also be wired with electricity for lighting or a fan. Want respite from bugs? You can drape mosquito netting around a gazebo as well!

    What is an Arbor?

    While arbors can be stand-alone structures, they’re often integrated into fencing to provide an entry or exit point from a yard. Some homeowners add an arbor swing inside to give the structure a bit of whimsy.

    Pros of Gazebos and Arbors

    • Visually pleasing
    • Provides a focal point for landscaping
    • Provides a gathering place in the yard
    • Offers shade and protection from the elements

    They were very professional—showing up exactly when they said they would, and things looked exactly how they described. And whenever anything did deviate from expectations, they were quick with communications. I could not expect anything more.

    Cottonwood Landscapes built a 20' semi-circular raised patio with pavers, along with some related projects that also involved electrical, carpentry and masonry. My feedback is very positive. Their design skills are excellent. They had a much better vision of the finished product than I did. Their crews were professional, dependable and talented. They knew what they were doing and showed up for a full day of work every day. They also had very good masonry and carpentry subs. And they were generally responsive and easy to work with. I will say this--they aren't cheap. There were some charges that had me scratching my head and we did have a few back and forths. But the questionable charges were relatively small compared to the overall price and I would much rather have a finished product that I love than take a minor price reduction. I would recommend them with confidence, especially for those with high standards.

    Overall I would say I am pleased with the design process and the installation. I had them regrade the slope and replace almost everything in my back yard. They replaced some clay with soil, regraded everything to slope away from the house, added a paver walkway, installed sod, and several other items. The workers showed up on time and worked very hard to get job done right and in a timely manner. The landscaping is beautiful, the paver walkway looks amazing, and most of the project looks great. You can tell that they know what they are doing and care about their work. My only frustrations were how they accidentally broke a rock feature and also how they missed some quality checks. Missing paver sand, pop up drains being buried too deep, and other minor items would all be quick and easy fixes if they had inspected the work or else responded to my requests before the ground froze. The good news is that they agreed to look at the missed items, and they agreed to fix them later… but I will have to wait 3-4 months for the ground to thaw and then hope that they are still willing to resolve everything then. They definitely got the most important things completed correctly in this project, and it really does look great. But it would have been a better experience if the final touches had been completed correctly and in a timely manner.
