Hot Tub Cover Buying Guide: Pergola vs. Gazebo

Looking to enhance your hot tub space but unsure of where to start? A gazebo or pergola is a great place to start! Check out our pergola vs. gazebo guide to learn how to choose the perfect hot tub cover to suit your spa set up.


What’s the difference between a pergola and a gazebo

The main difference between a pergola and a gazebo is the function of the roof. A gazebo provides full coverage from the sun, while a pergola allows for sunlight to shine through its slatted roof. Typically, a pergola provides partial shelter and shade over a garden, pathway, or patio. The criss-crossed wooden roof is an optimal space for plants and vines to climb. Meanwhile, a gazebo is a covered, designated seating area in the yard that offers more protection from the elements.
