Garden Structures: Gazebos, Fences, Arbors and Greenhouses

Garden structures are everywhere! With skill, desire, and a good set of plans you can enjoy building an outdoor structure yourself. For convenience and a little more money you can buy a prefabricated structure or kit that includes pre-cut pieces, panels and hardware, and is not too difficult to assemble.

Another option is to hire a contractor to work with the garden building's design plans; or have a professional builder assemble the kit: it's up to you.

However, keep in mind that building a garden structure is serious business and some projects, such as building a storage shed or gazebo, may require a permit. Working with a professional builder who knows your local building codes or taking your blueprint to your town's building department before building, is essential.

If you are looking to build any one of the above mentioned outdoor structures, be sure to browse our pages first for recommendations, information and tips. Since the desire to build a playhouse in the backyard is quite different from the interest in constructing a greenhouse; our pages meet you with your specific structural interest.

If you don't have a specific structural interest but would like to improve your garden's appearance or décor, consider adding a decorative structure such as a garden arbor, trellis or gazebo. For privacy, and to keep animals and young children on the property, consider putting up an attractive aluminum fence.
