Want to make your outdoor space a true living space year-round? One way to help weatherproof your garden is by adding a standalone structure, such as a gazebo, awning or marquee, to provide shelter for those rainy days and shade during the summer.

If there’s one thing the lockdown taught us, it was how to make the most of every inch of our homes, whether the interior or the exterior. In April 2021 a report by Dojo revealed that in Britain, some regions saw up to a 110% increase in spending on garden furniture year on year and it was also one of the top search terms on Google.

And garden improvements weren’t just about shopping for furnishings, hot tubs, bean bags or barbecues. Many are investing in those extras that allow you to use your garden all year, from patio heaters to garden igloos and of course, gazebos.

But which gazebo – usually in a turret, square, hexagon or octagonal shape –  is best for your garden? Whether you want a  party tent-style gazebo, a gazebo to cover your hot tub or a smaller style to shelter your patio, the first thing you’ll need to decide is if you want a permanent structure a pop-up gazebo.

What is a pop-up gazebo?

A pop-up gazebo is a covered structure with a frame that you can instantly put together when you need it and disassemble for storage when it’s not in use. If you have limited space in your garden and only want to use the shelter occasionally – for example when you have friends or family over, or when you hold a special event – a pop-up gazebo is likely the best choice for you. Have fun with the look and add fairy lights for magical evenings outside.

Retailers like Aldi and Argos launched their own ranges of gazebos – in fact, Argos’ £35 pop-up garden gazebo is a hot property, so we recommend shopping it ASAP if you’re interested.

But remember, pop-up gazebos are sometimes not waterproof and are not usually designed to withstand high winds. If you have a larger garden and are looking for a more lasting addition, you can opt for a seasonal or permanent gazebo.

A seasonal gazebo should be taken down when not in use, while a permanent gazebo is an all-weather shelter usually made from wood or steel installed in your garden.

This water-repellent structure is great come rain or shine and the cream colour will mean it will complement any garden design. This bargain gazebo comes with zip sides and a strong roof and we bet the stock won’t be around for long.

Permanent gazebos are often much more ornate than a solely functional pop-up or seasonal style, making it an eye-catching, major feature of your outdoor space, albeit a more expensive one.
