Stunning garden gazebos - The ultimate in outdoor comfort!
You've come to the right place to find stable, affordable garden gazebos complete with side panels in various sizes such as 3x3m and 3x4m. Our heavy duty gazebos have either an aluminium or steel frame, with a fixed canopy (hardtop) made of polycarbonate sheets or a soft top polyester tarpaulin. They are ideal for temporary or year-round outdoor use, as sun protection or shelter in the event of rain. Pull the sides across and enclose yourself from the wind and passing showers.
In contrast to party tents and pop up gazebos, garden pavilions are set up as stationary structures and, depending on the model you choose, can be erected for use over the summer or remain in place on the lawn or patio all year round. Our products are 100% waterproof, available in sizes 3x3m or 3x4m and can be erected very quickly. Where a parasol just doesn't cut it, create your chic, robust oasis of well-being in the middle of the garden and sit back and enjoy the view.
Your big advantage shopping with us, is that we offer a 10 year guaranteed availability for spare parts from the date of purchase for many of our products. This assures you that your garden gazebo can remain a much-loved part of your garden, even in the unlikely scenario of a piece becoming damaged. Worried about the cost of delivering our heavy duty products? Don't be - your garden gazebo will be delivered for free!
Heavy duty and light weight: A gazebo that achieves both
At House of Tents we've learned from years of customer feedback on our previous outdoor gazebo products. Innovative ideas and the wishes of our customers have been incorporated into the development of our products. This has resulted in technically optimised garden gazebos, conceived and designed by a team of experts from the aircraft industry. This team focused in particular on creating a product that is incredibly robust.
However, they also recognised the importance of simple, quick assembly and disassembly. With a build time between 30 minutes and three hours (depending on the model), we've succeeded in getting you set up as soon as possible. Of course, the one thing we haven't (and wouldn't) compromise is a 100% waterproof canopy and sides. On top of that you will enjoy high UV protection and a sleek design. All garden gazebos are delivered with a complete set of four side walls, allowing you to shut the outdoors out when need be. We use high quality waterproofing and UV protected coatings such as polyurethene (PU) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to ensure that the canopy and side panels remain weather-resistant over many years.
In brief: Our garden gazebo lines Rendezvous and Sunset
Our gazebos are available in two lines and different colours: the first is the Rendezvous line, which has a playful, decorative design that is both functional and stable. The more neutral Sunset line, in contrast, combines functionality and high stability. The Rendezvous line is the cheaper of the two models.
Both the Rendezvous and Sunset lines are available in three product qualities: Classic, Premium and Deluxe. While the Standard and Premium qualities have polyester roof tarpaulins, the Deluxe models are distinguished by a canopy with polycarbonate sheets. This weather-resistant roof material allows the Deluxe garden pavilions to remain standing all year round and is therefore a good alternative to a summer house or garden building. Snow loads of up to 50 - 80 kg/m2 are delivered by Deluxe gazebos.
The product lines also denote differences in the gazebo frame. Both Deluxe models and the Sunset Premium have aluminium poles that are particularly rust-proof. The poles of the remaining models are made of corrosion-protected steel with a phosphate powder coating.
The two gazebo lines at a glance:
- Rendezvous: Lower-priced line with playful, decorative design - functional and stable.
- Sunset: Visually refined product line with high stability and functionality.
Both product lines are available in classic, premium, and deluxe models, resulting in 6 product choices for your garden in either 3x3 or 3x4m dimensions, and various colours.

Heavy duty metal gazebos are a great choice for lots of uses
There are many options for an outdoor shelter in your garden: pop up gazebos, marquees, summer houses, and pergolas amongst many others. The best thing about metal garden pavilions is their durability and of course their elegant appearance, complete with stylish side wall curtains and canopies that let in just the right amount of light. Garden gazebos offer excellent protection no matter what the weather. Enjoy your barbecue or afternoon break in midsummer in the cool shade or brave rainy weather in comfortable shelter under the protective awning. As well as protecting you, the UV-protected canopy and sides also protect garden furniture or your patio from UV radiation and other environmental influences.
Heavy duty, permanently installed gazebos are particularly reliable. These can be used over many years, remaining standing throughout the winter. In contrast to wooden pavilions, metal structures require less maintenance and care. Thanks to special powder-coated poles, the metal frames are resistant to rust and other weather-related influences. Pavilions with hardtop canopies are particularly suitable for year-round use. In addition to excellent sun and rain protection, they can also carry high snow loads.
All of our outdoor gazebos come with 4 waterproof side panels that can be used to provide shade, wind and rain protection, or privacy. The sides hang elegantly at the four legs like curtains and can each be connected to one another with a zipper. This allows you complete flexibility, for instance, leaving one side permanently closed, having all four sides closed for winter storage or, partially opening and closing the sides as you wish, to follow the sun, wind or rain while maintaining a great view of the garden. If mosquitos and midges are an issue where you live, it may be worth investing in mosquito nets designed specifically for these products. They can be found on this page using the filter above.
Buying guide: 3 steps to the garden gazebo that is perfect for you
There is a large selection of heavy duty gazebos in different price ranges. Here's your quick guide to finding the right gazebo quickly in three steps.
1. Do you need it year-round or for temporary use?
You should think carefully about what your garden structure will be used for in advance of purchase. If you want a product that is winterproof, you need a robust model that can withstand high snow loads and has a canopy made of polycarbonate sheets. Heavy duty gazebos are 100% waterproof and can be left standing in the garden or on the patio throughout winter and can be used to store garden tools or furniture, or as a roof over your hot tub (with the option of closing the sides for added privacy). Our Deluxe models are particularly suitable here, as they are incredibly stable, and you can rely on the load specifications outlined in the table above. The aluminium frame also offers a high level of protection against corrosion. In contrast, other pavilion products use a polyester tarpaulin as a roof. These should be dismantled in autumn to protect the materials and ensure a long service life. Do you need an outdoor pavilion that can be erected and dismantled particularly quickly and is more suited for quick, temporary use? Take a look at our pop up gazebos or marquees and party tents. These are ideal for outdoor events or lawn parties, especially when you're inviting a large number of guests.
2. Style: timeless and uncomplicated or a playful, decorative design?
The two lines, Rendezvous and Sunset, differ in design. While the Sunset line comes with a simple, unobtrusive design, the Rendezvous product line is playful in beige and black, and has curlicues in the upper frame area. It is also worth mentioning that the Rendezvous line is on average less expensive, whereas the Sunset line in the Deluxe quality has the highest stability. Both are waterproof and add a touch of class to your patio, backyard, or other outdoor spaces.
3. Size: 3x3 or 3x4 meters?
First check how much space is available for the gazebo, particularly if your desired installation location is in a smaller space. Always keep the height of the outdoor gazebo in mind, aprticularly if you are considering using it as a patio gazebo. Now you know how much room you have available, the next step is to consider how much room you require. Will it suffice to provide shade and shelter for 2-4 people, or will you be hosting get-togethers and garden parties with more people. If you plan on using the waterproof gazebo for larger BBQs, dining or camping events, choose the larger 3x4m model. Are you looking for even larger pavilions or heavy duty pop up tents to accomodate seating for groups larger than 10 people? You will also find pop up gazebos from 4x8m to 5x5m or marquees up to a size of 8x36m in our shop.
Assembly and maintenance - Tips for the construction and maintenance of gazebos
A foundation (such as a patio or terrace) for anchoring is required for your heavy duty gazebo. The frame is then assembled step by step with the help of the easy-to-understand assembly instructions. Once the structure is upright, depending on the model, either the canopy is pulled over the frame or the polycarbonate plates are inserted into the structure and secured with metal fixtures. Following this, you can attach the side panels / side walls. Finally, you will need to secure the pavilion legs to the foundation with concrete anchors. The building of the gazebo, from start to finish can be seen particularly well in our animated assembly videos - see below. You will find all assembly videos in the respective product description or on our professional House of Tents YouTube channel.
Gazebos with a polyester canopy - storage and maintenance
While weather resistant gazebos with polycarbonate panels can be used throughout the entire year making them ideal for storing garden furniture, loungers, or the BBQ over winter. Pavilion canopies made of polyester fabrics on the other hand are worth dismantling and storing. Excessive temperature fluctuations and environmental influences damage the polyester and in the long run lead to breaks in the waterproof tarpaulin material. We therefore recommend removing the light weight canopy and side panels in autumn and storing them in a dry place. The metal frame can remain outside during the winter.
If components, including frame elements, anchoring pegs, side panels or the canopy, are damaged over the course of time, this is not a problem. For our garden pavilions we offer a spare parts supply of 10 years from the date of purchase. We want you to find the perfect product for you, one that fits your budget and that suits you and your garden area.
