Over one hundred 💯 compliments from friends and family

Over one hundred compliments from friends and family

– Here’s a backyard story from Decatur, Alabama.
My 12 x 14 gazebo was erected two years ago.

It is a perfect addition to my backyard and is used daily, year-round.

It is strong and has withstood very high winds.

It gets the most compliments of anything in my backyard. It’s hard to count but I’m there’s been more than one hundred compliments on the gazebo so far.

It is a proven product of essential use, stability, and beauty. I love my Gazebo by Yardistry!

We wanted a darker stain so we re-stained it before we put it up. Gives it a little different look so I thought I would share some picks! Thank you Yardistry!!

Sturdy, elegant and really great looking!

Grand Gazebo

– Here is a backyard story from Murrieta, CA
I spent several weekends taking the time to apply a clear wood sealer before having a contractor put it together as part of a larger backyard project.

The gazebo arrived in 3 very large and heavy boxes that was very well packaged and all the components were well protected. I inspected all the pieces for defects and checked that the hardware was all complete. The color of the wood was really great. I think it could have been sanded smoother at the factory, but since it’s an outdoor piece, it will look just fine. I’d advise reading the instructions several times to get a really good overview of the steps. I liked the fact that there was a meter plate to sandwich between the 2 layers of the long beam. My contractor took a few days to construct the gazebo over a built in BBQ island and made a few mistakes along the way since they didn’t pay attention. But, if you follow the instructions and don’t skip steps, then you should be fine. The roof pieces are very heavy and you will need several helpers to hold the pieces so they can be joined and attached correctly to the post and beam elements of the gazebo. It looks so sharp! My one gripe is that each post has a bracket and then 4 fascia pieces, but the fascia pieces do not hide or cover the bolts that will be used to secure the bracket to whatever surface the gazebo is attached. Seems like a pretty big oversight and I just don’t understand why it’s designed that way. But, other than that I really like the gazebo and it is worth every penny!

10 Tips On How to Build A Perfect Yard For Your Dogs 🐕

10 Tips On How to Build A Perfect Yard For Your Dogs

– This is a Guest post from Keith Bailey from

Dogs need plenty of exercise to stay healthy and happy. A big, fenced-in yard is the perfect place for them to run and play. Playing outside is good for pets’ health for a variety of reasons.

First, it provides them with much-needed exercise. A healthy dog needs at least one hour of exercise per day, and playing in the yard is a great way to get that. Second, spending time outside exposes pets to fresh air and sunlight ☀️, which are both important for their health.

Finally, playing in the yard is a great way to help pets burn off energy, which can help keep them calm and relaxed when they’re inside. But not all yards are created equal. If you want to make sure your dogs have the best possible yard, follow these tips!


1. Make sure the fence is secure. 🔒
The first and most important thing is to make sure your fence is secure. Dogs are escape artists, and if there’s even the smallest hole in the fence, they’ll find it and take off. Make sure your fence is at least six feet tall and made of a solid material like wood or metal.


2. Put up a doghouse. 🏠
A doghouse will give your dogs a place to go to get out of the sun or rain. It’s also a good place for them to sleep if they want to be away from the house. Doghouses should be big enough for your dogs to stand up and turn around in, but not so big that they’re uncomfortable. If you have a gazebo or other type of shelter in your yard it can serve as an extension of the doghouse. That can also be a good place for your dogs to relax!


3. Make sure they have enough shade ⛱️
Pergolas are a great way to add some style to your backyard while also giving your dogs shelter from the sun.

If you don’t have space to build something like this, you can always put up a couple of umbrellas or buy some shading cloth to drape over an area of the yard. Just make sure there’s enough shade for all of your dogs to comfortably lie in.


4. Get rid of anything poisonous. ☠️
Many common plants are poisonous to dogs when eaten, so it’s important to get rid of them from your yard. Some of the most common poisonous plants include lilies, azaleas, and rhododendrons. If you’re not sure whether a plant is poisonous or not, err on the side of caution and get rid of it. Dogs often ingest stuff by accident and get allergic reactions.


5. Keep the grass 🌿 short. 
Long grass is not only difficult for your dogs to run through, but it’s also a breeding ground for fleas and ticks. Keep the grass in your yard short by mowing it regularly. If you have a lot of trees, you may want to invest in a weed whacker to get rid of the long grass around them.


6. Create a designated ➡️ bathroom area.
Dogs usually prefer to go to the bathroom in one specific spot, so it’s a good idea to create a designated “bathroom area” in your yard. This can be as simple as putting some mulch or gravel in an out-of-the-way corner. You can also buy commercial dog potty products that are easy to clean up.


7. Put up a fence 🛠️ around the bathroom area.
Even if you have a designated bathroom area, it’s a good idea to put up a fence around it to keep your dogs from going anywhere else in the yard. This will help prevent accidents and make cleanup much easier.


8. Invest in a good sprinkler ☔ system.
If you live in a hot climate, it’s important to invest in a good sprinkler system to keep your dogs cool during the summer months. A sprinkler system can also help keep the grass short and free of pests.


9. Provide plenty of toys. 🧸
Dogs love to play, so make sure your yard is stocked with their favorite toys. Balls, Frisbees 🥏, and chew toys are all great options. You can even get creative and make your own DIY dog toys out of things like old socks or plastic bottles.


10. Be patient! ⌛
Building the perfect yard for your dogs may take some time and effort, but it’s definitely worth it. Just be patient and keep trying until you get it right. And most importantly, have fun with your furry friends!
Watching your dog play in the yard is always a fun and relaxing experience. Not only does their playful nature put a smile on your face, but also the sound of their barks and yelps can help to chase away any stress or anxiety you may be feeling. In fact, spending time with your dog has been shown to have a number of health benefits.

Here’s a few photos of our furry friends enjoying their backyard with some Yardistry products.


Inviting And Beautiful Gazebo

Dogs provide us with companionship, support, and love ❤️, which is why they are often considered to be members of the family. Studies have shown that owning a dog can reduce the risk of heart disease, lower blood pressure, and improve mental health. Dogs can also help us get more exercise, as we are often encouraged to take them on walks 🏃 or runs.

If you’re looking for some good reasons to spend more time with your furry friend, look no further! Join your dog in a game of fetch 🎾 in the yard or just relax on the bench together – either way, you’re sure to reap the benefits.

Beautiful, we love it and certainly worth it it

– Here’s a backyard story from California.

Very well packaged & very sturdy. Good instructions.

I chose to stain ‘fully’ every piece before putting it together for some added water protection which made for a ton of work but definitely well worth it.

I’m used to putting things together on my own but this needs tools the average person probably doesn’t have.

My brother with his tools & knowledge helped put it together with reinforcements…

Stronger hinges & securing the boxes to the screens, and some more.

We put the the screens together prior to putting them on top of the boxes because we added heavy duty locking wheels.

In the boxes I added 1/3 full medium rocks at the bottom to weight it because of wind while making sure it wasn’t too heavy in the boxes in spite of the fact the boxes are very sturdy and then filled the rest with red bark.

So in ❤️ with my Greenhouse!

So in ❤️ with my Greenhouse!

– Here’s a backyard story from Chesterfield, Virginia

Purchased the Greenhouse last weekend. My Husband and I put together all panels in one afternoon.

We are over 65 and 71. Second day my son and husband completed assembly even shelves while I taped windows. More like we had assembly line. Third day, all caulking everything. and voila… I have a beautiful dream greenhouse. No parts, screws or caulking missing., everything was spot on for usage. Now researching fan, thermometer and hygrometer for best results. Avid lifetime gardener and always dreamed of a greenhouse. This is superb construction.

All Ready For Spring 🌱

– Here’s a backyard story from Salem, Oregon.

I wanted a specific size with a higher minimum walk in height.

This 12 x 10 Gazebo was the best and did not disappoint. I took my time to inventory everything and watched the instructional video.

The video shows tiny details you can’t get from the instructions. I built main components over a couple of afternoons and evenings.

Then the final build assembly took about 5 hours with mostly 3 people.

Did I mention Watch the Video? Watch the Video

Once it’s all in place and adjusted it tightens up and is amazingly sturdy.

Great Product!!!

An Excellent Product (Thank you from Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿)

– Here’s a backyard story from Leven, Scotland.
We purchased the Gazebo from Costco in the UK, the price and quality were our main reasons for the choice.

It arrived flat packed and putting it up was not too difficult, well worth taking time to read the instructions through a few times before starting.

We also found it useful to have both a drill and driver set with the right sized sockets, this saved hours of work with screwdrivers and wrenches.

It was definitely a 3-4 person job especially the completion of the roof and it took almost 2 days, but well worth it.

We struggled to source suitable sides in the UK, although they do seem to be available in the US, so we had bespoke canvas sides made, which definitely make a huge difference.

Just waiting on delivery of the hot-tub ♨️ now and we will be all set.

Summer Kitchen Year-Round

– Here’s a backyard story from St Augustine, Florida.
We wanted an outdoor kitchen with a gazebo roof to give us some protection from the Florida sun ☀️ and rain 🌧️.

This 12 x 14 Wood Gazebo turned out to be just what we wanted. Construction is well thought out and straight forward.

The Quality is probably better than what I could have done on my own.

We added lighting, a fan and cabinets as well as two grills, an outdoor fridge, counter mounted icebox, cabinets and drawers. It turned out better than we imagined.
