Yardistry products have been specifically designed and manufactured to provide all individuals with the opportunity to style and create an oasis in their own garden. This is achieved through the different variations of screens, structures and fences that are all available at cost effective prices, so whether you are a professional customer or a keen amateur the possibilities for your garden design are endless.
One of the biggest considerations when purchasing an outdoor product is the choice of material. Every Yardistry product is built with 100% premium Cedar (Cunninghamia Lanceolata) Lumber giving your Yardistry product a distinctive, premium look and feel. With its natural beauty and outstanding physical properties, Cedar Lumber is the preferred choice for outdoor projects and considered a premium material. The ability of Cedar to bring warmth and character to a backyard project just can’t be matched by plastic or other man-made materials.
Cedar contains natural preservatives that help it resist decay. At our factory we have also applied a water based stain that has been formulated with ingredients that are safe for the environment. Some of our customers ask why Cedar Lumber feels lighter. There are two reasons for this. Firstly, Cedar is a soft wood so it is naturally lighter when compared to hardwoods. However, the primary reason is that the Cedar in your Yardistry product has been Kiln Dried. Kiln Drying is a process where the Cedar Lumber is put into a giant oven over a period of several days, removing moisture from the lumber. This makes the lumber more dimensionally stable so the wood will stay flat and straight, making it perfect for building an outdoor project.

Yardistry Limited was founded in Canada in 2007. Yardistry is a unique concept of premium cedar frame coupled with aluminium roof panels. Using these two complimentary materials creates a timelessly beautiful design, which is as attractive as it is durable.

Yardistry Limited was founded in Canada and is now owned and managed by Backyard Playnation, LLC, of Georgia USA.
We believe aluminium is the best material for a gazebo roof, and wood is the best material for the structure.
Traditionally gazebos have been made of cheap metal frame with vinyl roof, or wooden frame with felt shingles for the roof. Cheap metal frame gazebos will easily damaged and last only a short time, whereas felt shingles don’t look nice and need replacing. Opting for a thatched roof, or a cedar shingle roof looks better, but it costs far more, and there’s still the need for ongoing maintenance and repair.
Yardistry has combined the best of all solutions with a premium cedar frame, supporting a lightweight but strong aluminium roof. This reduces the need for maintenance, whilst ensuring your gazebo will last many many years.
In 2017 the Florida International University (FIU) tested a Yardistry 14ft x 12ft Gazebo with Aluminium roof using their ‘wall of wind’. It withstood a wind speed of over 150mph without damage!
All our gazebos and pavilions all include ground anchors. The anchors are mounted to each of the posts, and have two 1.27cm (1/2 inch) holes. We do not supply the hardware to affix them to the surface, as this will vary depending on whether you are fixing your gazebo to decking, patio or concrete.
