Gazebos & Marquees

The British summer weather is often the butt of many jokes but sometimes the sun does shine and most of us need some sort of protection when sitting in the garden. Mesh side curtains are available for the majority of the marquees so not only are you protected from the direct glare of the sun when it’s overhead but these curtains will offer protection when it drops a little lower in the sky. The curtain sides also provide some protection from insects. Most of these gazebos and marquees can be fixed to the ground, making them a semi-permanent structure able to withstand slightly stronger winds than the free-standing parasols. Not only can they provide shelter for your furniture but also the barbecue, so you can grill in a light shower, torrential rain might be a stretch too far! The dedicated Grillzebo also includes 6 stools and 2 side bars enabling your guests to sit with a drink and chat while you cook. FREE DELIVERY on all orders over £50 to most UK mainland addresses.

Ian Hodgett
Furniture and Barbecue Buyer
Ian has worked for Hayes since leaving school, spending the majority of this time in the outdoor furniture department and like Keith has an in-depth knowledge of Hayes customers. He also has the same ethos at heart when buying garden furniture; will it be an acceptable price and quality? He also takes into account the changing fashions and environmental considerations, such as using recycled materials, being recyclable at the end of its life and is the timber sourced from forests which have a re-planting policy. Ian’s other passion is barbecuing which resulted in Hayes having one of the few Weber Worlds within The Barbecue Shop here in store. The Barbecue Shop has gained a reputation as being one of the best places in north west England to obtain all your BBQ requisites as it stocks everything you need apart from the food. Some of our best sellers are the Angus & Oink and Traeger rubs and sauces which can elevate your food from the ordinary to the absolutely divine. Ian regularly posts on Instagram the results of his grilling labours and it’s not just the usual barbecue fare of bangers and burgers. If you head to the Hayes Garden World Youtube channel you can view almost 200 videos Ian has appeared in with top BBQ chef Richard Holden. These videos show you that there is no limit to the creative dishes you can cook on your BBQ, whether it’s fuelled by gas, charcoal, electric or wood pellets. Almost all the dishes are simple and well within the capabilities of any barbecuer, they range from the Christmas dinner to puddings to vegetarian dishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

We stock timber gazebos to suit a more traditional garden but we also stock marquees made from aluminium and powder coated steel with polycarbonate roofs and polyester side curtains.
This depends upon the style chosen, those with a solid roof will give good protection but the timber gazebos give very little until the top is fully covered with mature plants.
A timber gazebo will need treating every few years to keep it looking as new and also help it last longer. The brushed steel and aluminium only needs a wash down in spring log with the polyester curtains. The polycarbonate roofs will need washing down to prevent the growth of algae. 
The gazebos and marquees must be either secured with a ground fixing kit or cemented into the ground. If you don't want a permanent solution then we recommend that it be taken down and stowed under cover.
Yes, they all carry at least 12 months warranty covering defective materials and workmanship. It does not cover damage caused by adverse weather conditions, so we strongly advise that unless it is securely fastened down then it should be taken down completely.

Gazebo and Marquee Buyers Guide

A garden gazebo or marquee is an ideal solution to the problem of shielding ourselves from the sun’s harmful rays. We have designs to suit both a contemporary outdoor living and entertaining space to the rustic timber designs which perfectly complement a traditional English garden. They are large enough to cover a whole dining or lounge garden furniture set or small enough to tuck into a hidden corner where you can grow scented climbers up the sides and just chill out away from the world for a couple of hours. All our garden furniture is sourced by our experienced buyers Keith Laird and Ian Hodgett who, between them, have around 60 years experience working in the garden centre sector. We only use well respected suppliers such as Hartman, Norfolk Leisure and Zest 4 Leisure, so you can be assured of complete satisfaction with your purchase. If there is not a garden gazebo or marquee maybe a garden parasol would fit the bill. 

A timber gazebo can provide the ideal focal point in a sunny corner of your garden and also give you the opportunity of growing delicious scented climbers. It also gives you the ideal spot to sit and relax while admiring your hard work or just to escape and recharge your batteries for a couple of hours. The garden marquees are large enough to provide shade from harmful UV rays for the whole garden furniture set, vital if you have young children. Side curtains attach to the marquees to give you added protection both from the sun and a slight breeze. We also stock gazebos specifically designed to protect your barbecue so no longer do you need to consign it to the back of the garage in autumn and winter; use it to free up space in your oven by cooking the Christmas turkey on your grill. Check out our blogs and videos showing you how to do this, just click here.

We stock timber gazebos to suit a more traditional garden but  we also stock marquees made from aluminium and powder coated steel with polycarbonate roofs which are more suited to a contemporary outdoor living and entertaining space. The curtains are polyester so easy to wash and quick to dry.

Some of the garden gazebos and marquees do give full UV protection but others, such as those with a Textaline roof, do not give a great deal of protection.

The timber gazebos and marquees with polycarbonate roofs do give full protection from the rain but those with a polyester canopy will only turn a very light rain shower. The curtain sides of the garden marquees do not offer any protection from the wind or a heavy rain shower. Always make sure your garden gazebo or marquee is well secured to the floor and if possible take down a polyester canopy in winter and if a high wind is forecast.

The garden gazebos constructed from timber will need a treatment to keep them looking pristine and to enable them to last as long as possible; it will need redoing every 3 - 4 years. The garden gazebos and marquees constructed from powder coated steel and aluminium only need a wash down in spring with a mild soap and warm water solution and any accumulated dirt and grit brushed off. If the steel or aluminium frame gets scuffed or scratched just touch up with some car paint or a dab of nail varnish. The polyester curtain sides of the marquees will need a wash every spring. Polycarbonate roofs will need brushing off every now and again and a wash down with a mild soap and warm water solution to remove any algae or bird droppings.
