Our Story

Living Outdoors Ltd began as Edging Enterprises Ltd back in 1984 to manufacture and supply the local Garden Centre scene with wired garden edging in a continuous roll form, made by a unique semi-automatic machine.

The demand for the edging soon out grew the humble beginnings in a garage and the business moved to its current premises at 19 Vernon Street, Papakura. As the business grew they took over more space in the complex and with the extra space the product lines grew, firstly into trellis then archways, gazebos, spa chalets, fence panels, gates and now cedar garden sheds. Along with this growth came staff, which has grown into a small team of four.

As the range of products grew the name Edging Enterprises Ltd no longer reflected the current direction of the business and hence the change of name in January 2002 to Living Outdoors Ltd.
Gazebos, Spa Chalets and Sheds in cedar have now become a strong focus of the business and Allan’s engineering background is evident when you examine Living Outdoors’ well constructed, strong, yet very elegant gazebos.

A word from Allan…

At Living Outdoors Ltd my staff and I believe that your Gazebo/ Spa Chalet is an investment. It must both look and feel great as well as being strong enough to last a lifetime. It is my belief that customer satisfaction is paramount. A gazebo that is not durable will not produce that satisfaction, nor will a gazebo that does not look good, nor one that does not suit your purpose. In looking for a gazebo manufacturer it is important to look for three key factors:

  1. Design – Does it look good? – is it balanced?
  2. Durability – Will it still look good in ten years time? -how long will it last?
  3. Flexibility – Can I get what I want or do I have to settle for what they want?

Your Gazebo or Chalet can be customised to your requirements with all options available in all sizes.
