A room of your own

Every garden needs a bolthole: a place to sit and look at the view, a store for tools, or an office for working in peace. Our garden centre has buildings in every style, from summerhouses to sheds: but first, follow our tips for installing your perfect garden room.

A room with style: buildings are useful, but they're also beautiful and make a real feature in your garden. Make your building the focus of a rustic path, or frame it with plants or an archway.

A room with a view: You'll spend most of your time inside looking out, so give yourself a nice view. Add sculpture, a bench or a striking plant as a focal point: all are available in our garden centre.

A room in the right place: Weigh up the right spot for your building carefully. A bright spot is lovely for a summerhouse, but an office would quickly overheat so is better with some shade.

Practical considerations: All buildings need 60cm maintenance access around them and a level base. Concrete pads are ideal for larger buildings, but smaller structures can sit on treated timber bearers.

Please ask the staff in our Basingstoke garden centre for more information and advice about garden offices and summerhouses for your garden.
