Gazebo Buying Guide: The 50 Best Gazebos for Your Backyard

by Caitlin McCormack | Last Updated Feb. 24th, 2016

Gazebos can be a practical way to expand your outdoor living space, and provide your family with shelter from the elements. They are excellent for providing coverage over dining areas, hot tubs, and even outdoor grills.

There are a few different types of gazebo styles to choose from, mainly canvas top and hard top. There are also those which set up and collapse in just minutes and are easily portable, and those that are hardscaped into your yard for a more permanent solution.

They can be made from wood, metal, plastic, or other materials, and it’s really a matter of personal preference and budget which you choose. You’ll also want to consider the size and shape of the model you like — there are square, rectangular, round and even 6- and 8-sided models.

Before installing, you’ll want to check your local bylaws regarding gazebos, and confirm that the ground beneath where you’re planning to install it is stable and features adequate drainage.

With the above information in mind, in no particular order here are 50 of the gazebos that we consider best, based on available features and average customer ratings and reviews.
