Being outside is refreshing. There’s something just nice about sitting at a picnic table on an early summer evening, when the temperature is cooling, the sun is setting, and the food is straight off the grill. Add in family or good friends, and it’s just about perfect.
Except for the bugs. Maybe it’s gnats or bees or wasps, but more likely it’s mosquitoes, out to make a dinner out of you even as you try to eat your own dinner. Mosquitoes are at their worst in the evening, when the temperature is cooling, and they’re especially bad if you’re near water, which is terrible because being near water on a summer evening is otherwise quite pleasant.
One solution is bug spray (sorry, bug candles don’t work), but another is to take the bugs out of the equation entirely. To accomplish that while also being outside, you need something that acts like a portable structure.
Like this one.
What We Know:
The Gardenline Instant-Up Gazebo (Product Code: 58435) is an Aldi Find, meaning you can only find it in stores for a limited time. At the time of this post, it costs $119.99. That’s by far the cheapest screened gazebo I can find. It’s also backed by a one-year warranty.
The gazebo is 11.46 feet long, 9.84 feet wide, and 7.38 feet tall. The interior has about 123 square feet of room.
According to Aldi, this gazebo comes pre-assembled and sets up in 60 seconds or less. It has water and UV-resistant fabric, and the sides consist of a tight weave mesh to keep pests out.
