After 4 tarp repairs and 2 broken metal rods, we decided to retire our first patio gazebo to the shed. It seems that anchoring it into the grass on one side just didn't secure it well enough to stand the south winds we've been having so much of lately.
We picked up a new patio gazebo at Home Depot and discovered we could anchor it to the cement patio slab with bolts. So that's what we did. It took Ted about 5 minutes total to do it. I had my breakfast out on the patio in the sunshine this morning!
