Liveoutside garden products are committed to innovative product development and manufacturing. Our products are manufactured to the highest standards. Advanced treatment process with permanent wood preservative provides complete protection against rot and insect attack for up to 10 years. Please notice that 10 years guarantee applies only to products which have no contact with the ground. Otherwise durability of the wood is reduced.

The life of a building depends upon it's foundations. It is vitally important that your base is firm, level, square and large enough to accommodate the building you have ordered. Ideally, your garden building should be installed on a flat concrete slab which is unlikely to sink or break up. A thickness of 50 to 100mm is required, depending upon the size and type of building that you have ordered. As an alternative, concrete paving slabs or decking bases may be laid but they should still be level, unlikely to sink at any point and completely cover the area of base required. If you have any doubts concerning the base seek advice from a local builder.


All of the timbers are pressure impregnated using the most advanced formulation of permanent wood preservative which guarantees our products for many years against decay, weathering and insect attack.

Pressure treatment is a lifetime preservative treatment. The preservative is forced into the timber under pressure in a vacuum and penetrates below the surface. All other treatments apply a coat of stain to the surface of the timber only. With pressure impregnated timber, the chemicals are permanently fixed in the wood.


All liveoutside garden buildings can be delivered to your door complete with a professional full installation service for as little as £345.

Our experienced builders will have your building erected and ready for use on the same day for maximum convenience and minimum disruption. If you cannot be available on the day of installation the installers will gladly carry on with the work without anybody being home. To order our professional installation service please choose this option on your shopping cart at the time of making your purchase.

Where should you position your wooden gazebo?

A wooden gazebo is an amazingly practical garden accessory, as it can be used to provide shelter while you relax or socialise in your garden. And a garden gazebo can also add a wonderful aesthetic flourish to your garden. So where should you place your garden gazebo to best take advantage of both its practical and aesthetic benefits?

Placing your gazebo in the centre of your garden can have a powerful visual effect: the gazebo can provide a focal point for the rest of your garden and can be used in conjunction with other features to build a sense of symmetry. Because gazebos are often relatively large and decorative, they make fantastic central set-pieces for your garden. However, placing your gazebo in the middle of your garden can leave it rather exposed. While gazebos can protect you from the elements to a certain extent, they aren’t completely wind-proof or rain-proof. So a gazebo can be a rather cold place to spend time during certain times of year if it is left completely exposed.

To help keep your gazebo out of the elements, you may like to locate it in a corner of the garden, or near your main building. Placing your gazebo in a corner of the garden may give it an air of seclusion, which can be aesthetically interesting. Placing it near the house will help to suggest that it is a primarily social place because it is an extension of your home. Both of these options balance the need to take advantage of the gazebo’s visual qualities against the need to have a gazebo you can use in day-to-day life. However, neither option has quite the same visual impact as placing your gazebo in the centre of your garden.

If you really want a centrally-located gazebo, you may wish to consider protecting the structure from chilling winds and strong precipitation by using strategically-placed fencing. This will allow you to use your gazebo to create the maximum visual impact while still being able to unwind or socialise in it.

There’s no universally correct way of positioning a gazebo. However, by considering the advantages and disadvantages of the options we have given you here, you should find it easy to choose the spot that’s right for your particular gazebo.
