Gazebo Plans: Build A Garden Gazebo Yourself

Before building any structure, even a garden gazebo, check with the building department for code requirements and permits that may be required. Always check your zoning regulations before you begin searching for gazebo plans.


If you will be building with lumber, do some research on the different types of wood. Pressure treated wood will prevent rot and decay, this kind of wood is a good choice for wood that is in direct contact with the ground. Cedar and redwood is the common choice for building a gazebo, it is more expensive, but worth the money in the long run.


If digging is involved, make sure you are aware of water, telephone, or electrical lines that might be underground. Find out the locations of these lines to avoid any damage or injury.


Building a garden gazebo will not only make a great focal point to your home, it will also increase the value to your property, making this project a great investment. Below is a list of free gazebo plans from various sites.
