Garden gazebos: tips and ideas for the perfect garden pavilion

A selection of sturdy garden gazebos

Stunning garden gazebos are the ultimate in outdoor comfort! Our heavy duty garden gazebos have either an aluminium or steel frame, with a fixed polycarbonate canopy or a soft top polyester tarpaulin. Garden pavilions are ideal for year-round outdoor use in the UK, as sun protection or shelter in the event of rain. Pull the sides across and enclose yourself from the wind and passing showers. Our 100% waterproof garden gazebos are available in sizes 3x3 m, 3x4 m or 4x4 m and can be erected quickly. Buy a garden gazebo from the specialists.

A permanent garden gazebo for your backyard

A garden gazebo is any kind of gazebo with a permanently installed frame. Soft top roofs are suitable for use over the summer months and are easy to install and take down as the weather begins to sour. All weather garden gazebos with a hardtop roof are permanent fixtures and can withstand the worst of winter weather.

A hardtop garden gazebo for all weather conditions

Our Deluxe garden gazebos have a hardtop roof made of polycarbonate and are particularly suitable for year-round use. Hardtop gazebos are exceptionally robust and are designed to withstand all kinds of weather-related events. As well as being 100% waterproof, they are designed to withstand the accumulation of snow on the roof. The aluminium frame of our permanent garden gazebos also offers a high level of protection against corrosion.

A soft top garden pavilion with a polyester canopy is also 100% waterproof, thanks to a polyurethane coating and machine taped seams. These make fantastic summer garden gazebos, providing protection from UV rays with a UV factor of 30+ (Classic) or 50+ (Premium).

Semi-permanent gazebos with a polyester canopy are designed to be used from spring into autumn. The canopy and side panels need to be taken down over the winter to protect the materials and ensure a long service life. Excessive temperature fluctuations damage the polyester and in the long run, lead to breaks in the waterproof tarpaulin material. We therefore recommend removing the lightweight canopy and side panels in autumn and storing them in a dry place. The frame does not need to be removed and can remain in place over the winter.

Garden gazebo ideas for the patio or garden

Apart from setting it up on the lawn in the garden, some of the UK's most popular garden gazebo ideas could help you plan and landscape your backyard.

A sanctuary in your garden with a garden gazebo

Sun protection under a hardtop garden gazebo

A garden pavilion is more than a shelter for garden furniture. A garden pavilion allows you to create an outdoor living room in your backyard. You can set your creative mind to any number of garden gazebo decorating ideas so that it looks just how you want it. You get protection from any passing showers or cool breezes while enjoying the sounds of warm summer evenings, a relaxing garden view and fresh outdoor air.

A key element of a cosy and inviting outdoor living room is the right lighting. A good tip is to use a mix of light sources, such as fairy lights and lanterns, to achieve warm and alluring garden gazebo lighting. You can read more about garden gazebo lights and DIY outdoor living room ideas in our magazine article creating atmospheric light for your garden gazebo.

A patio gazebo for outdoor dining

A patio gazebo for outdoor dining

Garden gazebos are commonly used as a shelter for a patio or porch. A shelter over the patio allows you to make the most of your patio no matter what the weather. It's important to note that the garden patio gazebo must be firmly anchored to the ground using spot foundations at the four corners.

Dining outside in your backyard on the patio is a real luxury, but most often it's not an option because of the chance of a sudden rain shower, a cool breeze or gusts of wind, or even too much sun. A dining shelter on the patio with closable sides solves all these problems, making it an option every day of the summer and even into the colder months.

Our metal frame garden gazebos

The frames of our garden gazebos have been refined over many years

Our metal garden gazebos have either a steel or aluminium frame. We’ve developed our design over many years to refine the structure ensuring that they are as durable as possible. Steel framed garden gazebos are incredibly strong and highly resistant to accidental impact. They’re corrosion protected thanks to a thick phosphate powder coating. Aluminium garden gazebos are naturally resistant to rust, and the 90 mm wide upright posts are also very robust and can support a lot of weight. The Rendezvous Classic model has a round-profile steel frame, while all other models have a square frame.

The look of a wooden garden gazebo combined with the strength of a metal garden gazebo

The allure of a wooden garden gazebo is hard to ignore. Metal frame gazebos meanwhile, are long-lasting and will retain their look over years and years of use. In addition, metal garden gazebos require less maintenance over many years of use. You can benefit from the best of both worlds by buying a metal garden gazebo with a convincing wood finish. Our Forest line features a metal frame with either a birch or oak finish that has a great natural look.

Possibilities with garden gazebos with sides

Garden gazebo sides can be left open or tied at the legs

Heavy duty garden gazebos have fully waterproof curtains that keep the rain and wind out of your garden sanctuary. The curtains hang loosely at the legs when open, producing an inviting atmosphere. To close the pavilion zip the panels to each other at each side. Garden gazebo side panels have a good weight, which makes them resistant to wind, UV light and rain. That's why a permanent gazebo with curtains is perfect for all seasons – for backyard BBQs and get-togethers, for storing garden furniture, or as a fully closable and eye-catching canopy over your hot tub or spa.

Most of our gazebos come with a full set of four showerproof side walls. The Sunset Deluxe with hardtop canopy is also available without side panels. Whether for the Sunset Deluxe or any other of our models, if you wish to add or replace side panels at a later date, a set of four replacement curtains are available for all models and sizes (3m x 3m, 3m x 4m, and 4m x 4m).

An overview of our garden gazebo lines

Our luxury garden gazebos are available in three lines. The first is the Rendezvous line, which has a playful, decorative design that is both functional and stable. The more modern Sunset line, in contrast, combines functionality and high stability. The Forest line features a natural wood finish that gives the appearance of a wooden gazebo. The Rendezvous line is the cheaper of the three options.

Both the Rendezvous and Sunset lines are available in three product qualities: Classic, Premium and Deluxe. The Forest line is available in Premium, Deluxe and Superior. In addition, each model is available in different sizes, including 3x3, 3x4 m, or 4x4 m dimensions and various colours.

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.
  • Forest: Discreet and natural wood finish that can carry high loads.

Choose from a range of garden gazebo sizes

Ideal on the terrace or in the garden, our small and large garden gazebos offer a spacious area to share your meals with family and friends or to spend quality time outdoors. Our bestsellers include the waterproof and sturdy 3x3 m and 3x4 m garden gazebos. If you need to cover a particularly large area, our large waterproof garden pavilions 4x4 m will do the job.

Of course, you will need to keep in mind how much space you have available in the garden, not forgetting any height restrictions. Our pavilions have a height at their apex of between 2.7 and 2.96 m.

Find the right garden pavilion colour for you

Choose your favourite colour for your outdoor room! Cappuccino (beige), or Champagne (white) are inviting pastel colours that are well suited to modern styled gardens. If you prefer a grey garden gazebo, you have a choice between the slightly darker Loft Grey or the lighter shade of Stone. And if you can't decide, you can always retrofit side panels and renew your pavilion with different colours and combinations.

Accessories and spare parts

In summer, consider a couple of our accessories to improve your outdoor haven:

Mosquito nets

To enjoy the beautiful summer evenings, we recommend mosquito nets. Our garden gazebos with mosquito netting help to prevent insect bites. A double track rail on the hardtop models Sunset Deluxe and Rendezvous Deluxe, allow you to hang side panels and mosquito nets simultaneously.

How to put up a garden gazebo

A foundation for anchoring is required for your heavy duty gazebo. Note that patio gazebos should be fixed to the ground, rather than to the surface of the patio or terrace, whether paving stones or hardwood. The frame is then assembled step by step with the help of the easy-to-understand garden gazebo instructions.

Once the structure is upright, attach the roof. For soft tops, pull the canopy over the frame. Hardtop gazebos take a little longer to assemble. You will need to insert the polycarbonate plates carefully into the structure and secure with metal fixtures. They are engineered to fit exactly in the frame.

Finally, you will need to secure the pavilion legs to the foundation with concrete anchors. The building of the structure from start to finish can be seen in our animated assembly videos. You'll find all assembly videos in the respective product description or on our House of Tents YouTube channel.

Frequently asked questions about garden gazebos

Can a garden gazebo be attached to the house like an awning?

Garden gazebos do not attach to the side of the house. The pavilion may be installed directly next to the house, ensuring a gap between house and outdoor structure. Some customers find makeshift solutions that divert rainwater away from your patio.

Garden gazebo side curtains should be cleaned to remove any build-up of dirt or grime. The curtains should not be put into the washing machine. The best way to keep them clean is using a soft-haired brush and soapy water to work away at any dirt and mildew. Once finished, rinse off all soap residue and leave to dry.

Our Classic and Premium garden gazebos have a soft top roof made of polyester, that need to be taken down over winter. Deluxe garden gazebos have a polycarbonate roof that you don’t' need to remove. These strong garden gazebos are incredibly weather-resistant and can remain standing throughout the whole year.
