Building a gazebo is easier than you might think. It can be used as a quiet spot to sit, as a place to entertain or as a supporting structure for plants and flowers. However you use your gazebo, it will make a big difference in your outdoor space.

 

You can build a gazebo from scratch, though this is much more challenging. You can also buy smaller gazebos whole but then transport can be difficult. The easiest thing to do is to buy a gazebo kit. This will contain all the parts you need to build your own gazebo quickly and easily.

 

Gazebo kits are available from most gardening retailers. The widest selection will be online and you will have lots of choices. Select the type of wood and finish you want – gazebos can be made from lots of different woods, including oak, larch and redwood. A kit will come with instructions and is easy to put together.
