How to Choose a Garden Gazebo

A Gazebo is a classy, elegant structure that's also very practical and will become a valued focal point in the garden throughout the year.

With a rounded or angular roof, gazebos are quite flexible in their appearance but the classic shape is multi-faceted, perhaps hexagonal or pentagonal, with one or more open sides. The timber frame can be enhanced by the use of different materials, for example thatch or wicker.

Your choice of gazebo can depend on whether you are buying it for looks, functionality or both, it is going to be used for relaxation, entertaining, as a party space? Whatever your criteria, there's quite a range to choose from :-

A Gazebo for Everyone

The Rowlinson Willow Gazebo looks superb with rustic walls and roof that create a lovely shaded environment. You can alter the appearance of a Gainsborough Gazebo by switching panels to suit your own taste or location, and the Sandringham should satisfy anyone's party aspirations - this is a fabulous octagonal structure covered in lattice that contrasts sharply with their very simple contemporary BBQ Gazebo.

Forest have classically shaped gazebos such as the Arden and Burford that would find a home in the most picturesque of landscapes. Their range of garden structures also includes a gazebo that is so substantial that it has to be called a pavilion and also the striking Heritage Glasshouse gazebo with fully glazed panels and opening windows.

Or a Gazebo Just For You

Grange's Budleigh and Regis gazebos can be stunning focal points or centre pieces in any garden and you have the choice of various options to create a bespoke design. Start from the basic bandstand style and add lattices for shade or climbing plants, balustrades for style and good looks, and glass panels that enclose the gazebo but don't darken the interior.

M&M  have a very fine range that give you the option of a thatched roof, they culminate in the Large Kalahari Oval Pavilion Gazebo that measures an impressive 7 x 5 metres. If you love entertaining, then their marvellous gazebo bars, either free standing or lean-to, will be of particular interest and can transport you and your pina colada to a Caribbean poolside. 

If you want some stateside style, you might consider the Suncast Gazebos which, rather than timber, are constructed from precision cut plastic. They're certainly eye-catching in classic white with a double slate grey roof and have the advantage of being low maintenance.

Whatever you use it for, a gazebo gives you the chance to make the most of your garden. Multi-functional, a gazebo extends your living space and provides the opportunity for many activities all year round. The fabulous variety on offer means that you can choose the one that's exactly right for your garden.
