Gazebo Design and Construction
Gazebos, Pergolas, Outdoor living areas or Outdoor Pavilions have been a popular addition to the UK garden for centuries. Sometimes referred to as 'summer houses' but now as 'outdoor living areas' Gazebos and Outdoor Pavilions come in a range of materials and sizes to fit any garden.
Outdoor eating areas are increasingly popular in the UK and a little protection helps extend the usefulness of any outdoor area. Gazebos and Pergolas can add an extra dimension to outdoor living, they also provide protection from both sun and rain.
Materials used for gazebos can range from wrought iron to thatched Balinese styled structures.

- Outdoor cooking
The addition of an outdoor cooking facility such as a pizza oven, barbecue or outdoor kitchen is great for entertaining.
