Perfect for gardening, playing or ‘glamping’, the Garden Dome Igloo is tagged as “the hottest backyard accessory on Amazon.” It hasn’t been long since Amazon introduced its “tiny house” and now, there’s a new backyard accessory that people are going nuts about.
The Garden Dome Igloo is shaped like a dome and can be used in the garden or backyard as a greenhouse, children’s play area or a wintertime gazebo. Normally priced at $1,200, you can get a multi-purpose igloo that you can set up in your own backyard.
Because it is a DIY dome igloo, you need some patience and skills to set it up. You will need about 30 minutes to two hours to assemble the frame, attach it to metal clamps, add base weight bags and place the PVC cover on top. Once it is set up in your yard, you’ll have a cool, beautiful gazebo or an efficient greenhouse for your plants.
So far, this Amazon’s “hot” product has been gaining positive response from buyers. According to smart shopping expert Trae Bodge of trutrae.com, she is not surprised by the praises the garden dome igloo is getting. She said, “We’ve already seen a rise in the popularity of other pre-fab structures, like shed, “granny pods” and even houses, so it’s logical that other, similar structures would enter the marketplace.”
Bodge also emphasized the advantages of the garden dome igloo, “It’s incredibly versatile and with a little maintenance (like clearing off accumulated snow), you can utilize it year-round.”
If you’re not a gardener but still want to make good use of this unique backyard accessory, this igloo can serve as your own little outdoor space where you can just chill and have a great chat with your friends or family.
The manufacturer of this product also explained on Amazon that the igloo is spacious enough to function as a party tent for small get-togethers, “Depending on the size of the chairs, you can comfortably fit 8-10 people around a circular table in the center.”It is also a “great place to have a glass of wine with your partner under the stars,” just like what one reviewer wrote.
Some Amazon reviewers also left positive feedback on the garden dome igloo. One of them wrote, “We bought one after we went to the Watergate Hotel and rented one of the igloos for the evening. Last year, we set up in our front yard in DC and this year, we just moved it to our backyard.”
Another reviewer stated, “Although a little pricey, we found this item to be worth the price, as now we can get our kids out of the house to play instead of watching iPads all day.”
Just like any other innovative products; however, the Garden Dome Igloo also has downsides according to some people who have tried it. One unpleased reviewer wrote, “It is stuffy in there with both window pieces open and door open to the mosquitoes.” Another said that he cannot recommend the product because it does not look like the picture on Amazon. He said, “It is wrinkled and not smooth like the picture shown.”
Nonetheless, if you find this product interesting and you want to create an amazing, multi-purpose outside space at home, the Garden Dome Igloo can be the backyard accessory you have been waiting for.
