The must-have accessory for this year’s garden, gazebos are a quick way to add shade and privacy and provide an all-important space to relax and unwind in your garden.
We’ve looked at what gazebos are and which ones are best for your garden but where is the best place to buy a gazebo and where can you find the best deals?
Let’s look at the options:
Probably the most convenient option is to buy a gazebo online. That way you can quickly compare prices, filter through dozens of products and find something within your budget. There will often be options to pay in instalments or take advantage of special offers or discount codes.
From well known DIY stores like B&Q and Argos to online garden centres and specialist gazebo retailers, online shopping easily offers the most choice. You can have your gazebo delivered straight to your door or order online and collect in-store and in most cases, have your item within days of ordering.
The other advantage of online shopping is the reviews, you can easily find lists of the best buy gazebos where someone else has done the hard work for you!
Don’t forget free-ads and online marketplaces like eBay, Gumtree and Facebook marketplace too. Although many items will be second-hand, it’s one of the best ways to grab a bargain.
At a garden furniture store
If you’re planning to splash out on a gazebo, it’s definitely worth visiting a garden centre or furniture store where you can view the gazebo in-situ, take any measurements and see how it’s constructed.
You may decide you don’t like it or that it’s too large or cheaply made and for a large purchase, it’s often worth making the trip to an actual store to see the item in the flesh.
It’s also good to see garden furniture or a hot tub underneath the gazebo as it’ll give you an idea of the finished set-up and help you make an informed decision based on your needs.
At a supermarket
Supermarkets are constantly adding to their stock and it’s commonplace to find garden furniture and gazebos sitting alongside ready-meals and fresh vegetables. Asda and Aldi are particularly low-priced and have some hard-to-beat offers.
Another option if you can’t find an off the shelf gazebo to suit your needs is to have one custom made.
There are many carpenters and blacksmiths who will happily create a gazebo to suit your needs and fit your space to your exact requirements. Usually costing more than a pre-made version, you’ll be able to add any details, create unusual designs and have something that’s completely unique.
When is the best time to grab a bargain?
Garden furniture sales tend to be seasonal, occurring at the end of the summer and into early autumn as retailers make way for seasonal stock.
If you’re lucky, you might be able to take advantage of special promotions throughout the year so it’s worth keeping an eye out for deals and subscribing to newsletters and communications since retailers often let their existing customers know about promotions first.
Where can I buy cheap gazebos?
For inexpensive gazebos, look out for end of season sales, clearance sales and second-hand options. Cheap doesn’t always mean bad quality and if you’re prepared to spend a little time searching, you’re bound to be rewarded with a bargain.
Ultimately, where you buy your gazebo depends on what kind of gazebo you want, whether you have access to a garden furniture store and if you want a permanent custom-made gazebo or a pop up for summer shade and entertaining. Happy shopping!
