A gazebo provides shelter from the elements and a focal point in your garden where you can go to sit and relax. Garden Oasis supply traditional wooden gazebos made from pressure treated timber for a long life, and more contemporary wall mounted canvas gazebos with a metal frame that provide an inexpensive yet stylish shelter from rain and sun on patios, making them a must for summer garden parties.
Gazebos can be traced back to the very earliest Egyptian gardens of 5000 years ago, and are now used throughout the world. No-one knows where the word 'gazebo' originated, it has been suggested to mean "how beautiful", "I shall gaze", "I will look" and similar sayings. We think they are all appropriate guesses.
Their use spread across Ancient Rome, Pompeii, the Persian gardens, China and Japan, France and across the world. They were even used for meditation in the gardens of monasteries.
Gazebos are usually free-standing, with open sides and very large ones are used in parks as bandstands. They are of no set shape or design.
Royalty were the first to have gazebos, then aristocrats, and the wealthy, until eventually they became affordable for all those wanting a sanctuary to provide shelter, shade, peace and somewhere to relax. Have a doze, read a book, watch the wildlife, whilst sipping a cooling drink - aaahh who wouldn't want one?
In England and North America they are traditionally made of wood. Look at the beautiful smaller Willow Gazebo in the Garden Oasis range if you are searching for something different or at the breathtaking Oriental Pagoda Gazebo in the range for a gazebo that will act as a stunning focal point in your garden.
We have a gazebo for any garden design and price range - just choose your favourite, and look forward to retreating into it, enjoying relaxing summers for years to come.
