A thatched gazebo is a great addition to any garden or landscape. Depending entirely on the purpose you want it to fulfill, the possibilities are virtually endless when it comes to your own private thatched addition. Whether you simply require a shaded shelter from the elements, a beautiful focal point in your garden or a space in which to relax and/or entertain, our customized thatched gazebos come in a variety of shapes, sizes and finishes, each one tailor-made according to your taste and requirements.

Here are 10 ideas for your bespoke outdoor area:

Natural Timber Gazebo
The natural colour of clear treated eucalyptus timber pairs beautifully with a thatched roof, softly adding a subtle touch of rustic to your garden.

The much lighter natural tint of the eucalyptus conveys a pleasant touch of softness to the ambience of the structure.

Square Timber
Put a modern twist on a classic thatched roof by substituting cylindrical timber for square timber columns, beams and rafters.

Yet another way to add a contemporary touch to a thatched gazebo is by replacing timber columns and bearers with reinforced concrete that can be cladded in a variety of ways to add the finish of your choice.

Swim-up Poolbar
Turn a poolbar into a coolbar by adding a bar with seating to your pool. Enjoying a refreshingly cold beverage whilst comfortably submerged and seated in the pool is the ultimate way to stay cool during hot weather.
