We’re putting up a gazebo this weekend that’s solid wood with an aluminum roof. Total weight is ~600 pounds. In our area we do tend to get pretty good monsoon storms that get quite windy. How much wind would it take to be concerned about our gazebo being picked up?
I know we should anchor it somehow. Of course I’m not opposed to that, just need to figure out what would be the best way to go about that.
Unfortunately we are idiots and had turf installed before deciding to get a gazebo, so we aren’t exactly sure how to anchor it properly.
Should cutting out squares of the turf and pouring concrete blocks to anchor in to? Just long ground spikes of some sort? We’re in southern Arizona, so the ground is mostly hard dirt if that matters.
I’m completely new to this, so any help is appreciated!
