Backyard Gazebo Ideas for You

Looking for backyard gazebo ideas? So glad you are here.



A gazebo can be a blessing in your yard. For some it's an alternative to a porch and for others it's an extension of your home's outdoor spaces.

A gazebo is sometimes the gathering place where family photos are taken or where you sit with loved ones on summer afternoons.

No matter the reason, we share backyard gazebo ideas and pictures. Of course, yours may be in your front yard which is also pleasing.

A backyard gazebo can be a beautiful place for privacy and refuge, even if your home is blessed with a covered porch. A gazebo is a little "getaway" where you can take your glass of tea and a good book and head to the backyard for some leisurely quiet and calm.

Take an Unhurried Moment to Enjoy These Gazebo Pictures

This backyard gazebo is as romantic as it is lovely. On a nice day, I think Dave and I would be sitting here watching for pretty birds.

Vintage gazebo with charm galore

Consider this welcoming gazebo with its vintage corner brackets and a small table and chairs for comfort. What a nice place to relax with a neighbor or dear friend - or your sweetie.

We like the narrow brick walkway that leads to the gazebo. Take me home, country roads.

private backyard gazebo that is enclosed

Who wouldn't love this very charming enclosed gazebo structure?

It looks private, doesn't it? Does it give you some backyard gazebo ideas to try? In this small enclosed gazebo, perhaps one could write, do some artwork, listen to music or read.

The fact that it has operable windows makes this gazebo suited for more months of the year. Take your hot chocolate and marshmallows out here when the snow is falling!

this elegant gazebo is spacious for entertaining

Not sure about you, but we think this elegant gazebo would be the site of parties and other entertainment: a family reunion, a small retreat or even a place to camp.



splendid gazebo you might find in a botanical garden

This gazebo reminds us of one you would see in a lovely botanical garden - with a sturdy stone bench upon which to rest for a while.

And this more rustic gazebo seems to be an outdoor extension of this home. A place for shade and conversation and perhaps a picnic or board game. We can envision sheer porch curtains hung from the sides for extra privacy and whimsy.

The lovely woods and greenery create a quiet privacy for this gazebo.

latticework softens this tall elegant gazebo

This tall, more formal gazebo with its charming lattice-style framework may seem quite prominent for a casual backyard, but surely it has its place. Just as with porches, there are a variety of gazebo design ideas and you just need to find what resonates with your style and needs.

Our Kind Reader Shares This with Us

lovely Amish-built gazebo in Shareon's country front yard

Shareon, one of our sweet readers, says their gazebo is truly enjoyed; it sits in their wonderful country front yard, which is about the size of a football field. What a serene place! You can see a small amount of the Shareon's spacious woodland garden to the back left of their gazebo.
