You Know You’ve Made it When You Own a Gazebo
Gazebos are real standout garden buildings, aren’t they?
Sheds, greenhouses and summer houses all fulfil essential roles, but there’s something uniquely special about owning a garden gazebo.
A gazebo is such a versatile garden feature, offering you a place to entertain friends, dine alfresco with the family, relax with a good book, or simply shelter from showers - all in contemporary style and with a bit of panache.

Garden Furniture Ideas Just for You
As summer begins and we spend more of our time outdoors, comfortable garden furniture is a must.
A couple of tired-looking camping chairs, full of holes and with wonky legs, just won’t do if you've taken the trouble to make the rest of your garden look just so.
In order to properly enjoy your time outside and keep your garden looking at its best, we recommend investing in some of our exquisite outdoor furniture.
Unclothed, an arbour adds beautiful structure and presence to any garden. Acting as a focal point, it’s somewhere for your eye to stop - a full stop in a garden design.
Drape plants over your arbour and it becomes an oasis of perfume on sultry summer evenings and an enchanting hideaway to enjoy a few precious relaxing moments in a day. A place to plot, perhaps, or even engage in illicit trysts?
So, get that arbour clothed right now!
Picture this scene…
It’s been one of those glorious days, where the late-summer sun hung lazily in the blue, cloudless sky, completely uninterrupted, from the moment you rose until well into the evening. Now, as dusk begins to descend and you’re treated to a vibrant new moon and an ink-blue sky full of sparkling stars, you and your friends are ready to enjoy outdoor living at its finest, courtesy of your shrewd investments from Buy Sheds Direct.
Right on cue, your garden is tastefully illuminated by 50 charming Solar Garden Lighting Copper Wire LED Hearts, shining on your little social gathering but leaving the rest of the world clothed in darkness. How satisfying, you think, as you serve the drinks, to enjoy garden lighting without any increase, whatsoever
Impressive garden features in their own right, arbours aren’t simply offering somewhere to sit. At Buy Sheds Direct, we have a wide range of different styles, both traditional and modern in design, to complement any outdoor space. Many of our garden arbours incorporate trellis too, perfect for supporting climbing plants. An attractive wooden arbour adorned with roses, wisteria, jasmine, or clematis really is a sight to behold.
To help you find your perfect arbour, we’ve compiled a list of our 5 favourites to help you. Have a look below or view our full range of arbours here.
As you take a brisk morning stroll around the block to get the day’s newspaper, a bottle of milk or a loaf of bread, you’ll probably walk past a fair few houses. All are fairly nondescript, there’s nothing special about any of the homes you see; they all look exactly the same. Their respective owners have, no doubt, spent countless hours improving their kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and lounges, keeping up with the latest styles and trends. The same effort, though, has not been given to increasing their ‘kerb appeal’. The flowerbeds are barren, the paint covering the exterior walls is flaky, and their garden boundaries are constructed of tired, old lap panels or threadbare hedges.
Borders Provide Your Garden Design with A Cutting Edge
A painting without a frame is, well, unframed. A haircut without a slight snip to ‘take it over the ears’ is unfinished and not ready for the mirror to see the back of your head. And a garden without border edges is how the words on a page look without my reading glasses - all a slightly bit blurred. Strong borders also allow you to cut and shape your lawn or border to the exact shape you need. A line trimmer gets up close and personal to keep things tidy. Your garden simply looks better for it.
