Summertime in Georgia can get sweltering hot; between May and September, the average temperature can range from 81 to 89 degrees. To get a refreshing summer break, how about a staycation in your backyard? Installing shade trees, a pergola, a gazebo, or a pavilion allows you and your guests to stay cool in your own outdoor space.
These shade structures allow you to extend your outdoor time, enjoy the fresh air, and keep cool without leaving your home. They also come in various designs and structural shapes that add visual appeal to a landscape. At Bloom’n Gardens Landscape, we provide custom pergola, gazebo, and pavilion installation services throughout Atlanta, Buckhead, Smyrna, and nearby cities in GA.
Increase Your Shaded Areas Naturally with Trees
Installing shade trees is the best way to create shade naturally. Shade trees such as maple, sycamore, and oak will cool your yard and create more fresh air. Trees also provide tranquility with the sound of rustling leaves in the breeze.
Trees also improve the visual appeal of your landscape; whether you install a leafy or flowering tree, they provide natural beauty with their patterns, flowers, fruits, and canopy. Shade trees also provide a screen for privacy against unwanted views and a reduction in traffic noise.
Create Shade with a Pergola
Another way of achieving shade in your yard is to install an outdoor feature such as a pergola. Pergolas not only give a stylish and attractive look to your property but also extend your outdoor space. Many types of materials are used for constructing pergolas, but wood is often the preferred choice because of its natural look and customizable benefits.
The structure uses a criss-cross beam roof. If the pergola’s open roof does not provide enough shade, you can plant climbing vines, position shade trees nearby, or install a sunshade covering. Pergolas offer enough light and breeze to flow through, making your summer backyard experience more enjoyable.
With help from our professionals, you can design your pergola to blend in perfectly with your outdoor living space.
Add More Shade with a Gazebo or Pavilion
A gazebo or pavilion makes great additions to keep you, your family, and guests stay cool outdoors. These roofed, stand-alone outdoor structures are often used as backyard or landscape features. However, a gazebo is different from a pavilion.
A gazebo has an open-sided design that includes flooring and has a round shape of five short sides or more. Gazebos come in unique shapes, such as octagonal, oval, or rectangular, with domed or flat roofs. Gazebos provide a place to sit inside or dine alfresco while providing shelter from the sun. They are typically installed in areas with lots of trees and vegetation and serve as a popular place for photo sessions and garden weddings.
A pavilion can be a temporary or semi-permanent structure that can accommodate a group of people. Pavilions can function as a lounging area for relaxation or a venue for events and parties. Pavilions can have walls or be left open on the sides. It can incorporate other outdoor features, such as outdoor kitchens, furniture, and fireplaces. A pavilion provides full shade capable of hosting outdoor events like picnics, weddings, and family reunions.
