Garden canopies – or is it veranda?

Is it a canopy? A gazebo? Or a veranda? All these different names can get a bit confusing when really all you want is a lovely, sheltered place to relax in your garden.

At Eden Verandas, we generally say a garden canopy or veranda is a structure with a roof made of glass which can be used as an area to entertain friends and family, for al fresco dining, shelter over a BBQ, hot tub or even a games table. The great thing is that whatever you choose to use your veranda for, you’ll be protected from the elements and will be able to enjoy the outside come rain or shine.

A garden awning is a great way to shield from the heat of the sun on those hot summer days. An Eden awning can be made to whatever size you choose, is available in a wide choice of colours and fabrics.

With integrated features, such as heating and lighting, they can also be a great space for enjoying those long summer evenings. The Eden Cadiz range of supported awnings even offer rain protection for those unexpected downpours. So, it doesn’t really matter what’s in a name. All you need to decide is how you want to enjoy your outdoor space.

What’s best for your lifestyle?

There are a few things you’ll want to consider when you’re thinking of installing any kind of leisure structure in your garden.

  • How will you use your new space?
  • Where will it go?
  • What’s your budget?
  • What’s my style?

Garden canopy/veranda

Canopies and verandas are more permanent structures for your garden. Do you want to enclose the sides or have sliding doors? If so, you may want to consider a glass room. Do you want it for shelter over your al fresco dining area? Or do you want to add sliding doors so you can open up your whole house and bring the outside inside? Eden’s experienced design team will be able to guide you through all of the possibilities available so you can achieve the perfect veranda for you and your lifestyle.

Verandas are made of high quality aluminium with steel inserts for added strength and are powder coated with a weather proof finish in a colour of your choice. Every veranda is unique and is manufactured to fit into your space. There’s also a wide range of accessories such as heating and lighting which you can add to enhance your enjoyment.

Our veranda is lovely. The plans and costs were clear and with no surprises. The fitting went as planned and the team were all very professional. L. Barker.


Garden awnings come in a variety of styles, colours and shapes. They’re one of the most versatile additions to your garden and one of the easiest to install. They’re perfect for a casual, comfortable outdoor area giving you complete sun protection. They are easily operated with a state of the art hand-held remote control allowing you to open and retract them as you wish. It is also possible to have wind and rain sensors fitted which will detect bad weather and retract your awning even when you’re not there. Heating and lighting can be added to complete the experience and these can also be easily operated by the hand-held remote control.
