A gazebo in your backyard or garden is a fun way to appreciate the outdoors – in a beautiful structure that gives you shade, and comfort. A gazebo will make entertaining in your garden all the more pleasurable and relaxing!

There are many different types of gazebos, ranging from removable, to elaborate permanent structures.  

Gazebos can come in a range of sizes, materials, and shapes. Sometimes you can buy simple gazebos are your local hardware store, or you can get specifically designed structures to better match the style you desire. Some popular materials for gazebos are timber, aluminium, or vinyl. 

Before you jump in and buy the first one you see, it’s important to consider why you want a gazebo: is it for entertainment purposes? Shade near the pool? Part of your desired aesthetic? All of these considerations will affect the final look, size and price of your gazebo. 

How much does a gazebo cost?

A gazebo’s price may range from a small $500, if you’re buying a readymade style from a hardware store, to $20,000 if you’re getting a carpenter to design and build one from scratch for you. 

-For $500, you can expect a ready-made gazebo from a hardware store. You won’t have any control over the size of look of the gazebo

-For around $3000, you can get a gazebo from a supplier with a metal roof

-$18,000 will get you an 8 metre wide gazebo, with more control over the material and look of the gazebo.
