At Humboldt Redwood Company, we love inspiring our readers with the endless backyard design possibilities redwood lumber can offer. For a homeowner looking for a highly rewarding backyard project, it’s hard to beat deciding to build redwood garden structures. Arbors and gazebos made from redwood not only look spectacular, they are great for social gatherings, or providing a place to relax right in your backyard. Redwood arbors and gazebos also blend quite easily with any outdoor landscape.

Inspirations for redwood garden structures are virtually limitless! Choosing to construct your dream garden structure with redwood will give your backyard long-lasting beauty.  Whether for fences, decks, furniture or a gazebo, redwood is easy to work with, making it a great material for the do-it-yourself builder. Speaking of gazebos, the stylish, well-designed Lake Tahoe Gazebo can easily broaden your home living space, expanding it to the outdoors. This gazebo design offers a perfect place for relaxation out of the direct sun or a place to enjoy a meal or social gathering with friends.

An arbor over an existing redwood deck is another great do-it-yourself project that may be a great starter project before tackling something more technical, like a gazebo.  The arbor provides both shade and a great gathering area to any backyard. A Windsor Shade Shelter, when built next to the home, can help maintain a cool house temperature by helping shield doors and windows from direct sunlight.

Once you’ve decided to build redwood garden structures, there are many different plans available that will inspire and add elegance to any backyard. Redwood landscape plans come in a variety of different sizes and shapes to fit any backyard configuration. Additionally, undertaking a project for a magnificent looking arbor or gazebo is a great excuse to gather family, friends and the barbecue.

Whether you build it yourself or wish to find a contractor, Humboldt Redwood lumber products are available to get you started. Look for our products at independent lumber yards and home improvement retailers in California and the Western United States. See our Where to Buy page for a stocking location near you.
