Given the quality, the cost isn't unreasonable. Good value.

Overall rating :  4.5 / 5

Checo home and garden are a well-established company based in West Yorkshire.  They are renowned for good quality and affordable garden goods and this gazebo is definitely one of them.


The Checo 10 x 10ft wooden gazebo is a cracking piece of kit and ideal for those of you that have the room in your gardens or patio. With 10 feet of covered, dry area it is perfect for adding furniture inside and on those hot sunny days.


It has open sides, so is perfect to use as a hot tub shelter. This is always handy as it mean extends the longevity of your hot tub.

Pros

  • Beautiful, high quality finish
  • Good customer support, available for replacements
  • Well made and solid

Cons

  • Takes longer to construct. Not for inexperienced DIYers
  • Higher price tag than our other picks

Conclusion

Hands down, this is one of the most solid and well-made gazebo kits on the list.


I certainly recommend this product if you are looking for a strong outdoor garden gazebo that will last for a number of years and only needs minimal maintenance.


Don’t forget when you visit Amazon you can decide if you want the shingle roof whilst also being able to select which colour too.


The measurements are 10ft x 10ft of internal space but the total size is 12ft x 12ft which includes the roof overhang.


One word of caution, not about the gazebo but about the surface it will be standing on.  Please ensure that the surface is hard, level and flat as this will contribute to the sturdiness of the gazebo.


At the bottom of the legs, you have metal feet that are attached and these have holes in where you can screw them into the ground to add extra stability.



Quality

High quality timber. May need treated, depends on your requirements.

Speed

2 individuals constructed this in 3 hours.

Cost

Good value octagonal kit. However shingles & floor not included.

Overall rating :  4.2 / 5

This gazebo kit gives you protection from external elements around your garden. In fact, we found because of the octagonal gazebo shape it is the best gazebo for high winds.


The back of the gazebo, when assembled, gives you privacy and a good cover from the wind. You will note it is designed like a trellis which is good for letting more light in. No one want's a dark and dingy seating area.


If you plan on using this during evenings or throughout the winter we would advise investing in gazebo heating. It will make it way more comfortable for you and your guests.

Pros

  • Decent space - 3.5m diameter is great for entertaining
  • Good quality. Well made and solid feel.

Cons

  • Timber gazebo kit may need treated as per your preference
  • No flooring or shingles included 

Conclusion

This gazebo can be used for outdoor family/couple leisure bathing as the octagonal sides offer privacy protection. The inside of the gazebo is spacious and can easily hold a hot tub for 3 to 5 persons.


It is large enough to accommodate chairs and a table for a family of 3 to 6; whether for morning breakfast, for dad’s solitary time with the paper or for the kids as a play area in the middle of the garden.


If you're an experienced DIY-er and are prepared to take on a project, this is for you. For the low key, inexperienced ones among us, we would advise consulting a professional first. Or perhaps the more simple wooden pergolas would be more suitable.

Cost

Premium quality for a higher price. It makes for a better investment.

Overall rating :  4.5 / 5

For those that want to add a touch of class and style to their garden, here's our best premium timber gazebo kit. 


Checo Home and Garden call this the "Natalia" and everything is included in the price except floor and felt roof tiles.


One of the best things about the trellis style is they are perfect for enhancing with gazebo lighting. Because we're keen environmentalists, we would encourage solar lighting (and it's easier to set and forget).

Pros

  • Trellising between the posts is exceptional quality
  • Good instructions and easiest to construct on our list
  • 3m x 3m feels suitable for most home garden or patio scenarios

Cons

  • Shingles not included
  • Higher price tag

Conclusion

In summary, we were pleased with the outcome after building this. When we surveyed other buyers they found the instructions were easy to follow but you will need 2 - 3 individuals to complete assembly.


If you're dead set on a wooden gazebo kit we would encourage you to go with this premium pick. Alternatively, if you like the style but are open to other options the polycarbonate gazebos are a solid choice too and look slightly more contemporary.

    Thanks for this guys, I’m looking to prep for next summer already. I love the willow look so will be going for the Rowlinson willow gazebo. Hopefully its not hard to build *fingers crossed*

    • Jamie Irwin says:

      Hi Kacie. Thanks for your message. It’s probably the best time of the year to get ahead and start prepping for the next summer. The Rowlinson Willow Gazebo is beautiful, the team found it extremely easy to assemble – just make sure it’s stored safely if there’s gale force winds. Hope your DIY wooden gazebo plans go smoothly 🙂
