Why your Garden should have a Summerhouse

When the sun shines and you're spending more time outside, a summerhouse is a valuable asset to any garden.

Summerhouses, and there is a large range from leading manufacturers such as Rowlinson, Forest, Lugarde and Halls to choose from, are practical, versatile and will enhance your garden.

A summerhouse can also easily become an indispensable all-the-year-round house. 

A sun trap during the summer can be turned into a gym in the winter.

They may also double up as an office or workspace and can offer useful storage space, somewhere to put the mower or bicycle. 

Traditional or Modern Summerhouse

Halls are traditionally styled, timber summerhouses with tongue and groove cladding. Covered verandahs are featured in their Hobby, Broadway and Chiltern ranges that use the highest quality FSC approved Scandanavian treated timber. Their octagonal Campden design can look very classy and will fit neatly into a corner or provide a sophisticated focal point.

Rowlinson manufacture a range that includes octagonal designs together with other larger buildings, such as the strikingly modern Connor and Carmen summerhouses, that can used as an office as well as a space for relaxation and entertainment. The Baltic Log Cabin is cleverly configured to sit in the corner of your garden with double doors cutting across one of its angled edges.

In addition to making a number of compact summerhouses such as the Barleywood and Maplehurst that will surely find a place in most gardens, and the Cranborne that snugly fits into a corner, Forest don't hold back and market their larger summerhouses as outdoor offices and pavilions, culminating in the imposing Snowden and Woodbury log cabins.

Lugarde's Unique System

Lugarde also have a large variety of impressive octagonal summerhouses that stand out from the crowd, sizes stretch from 8ft to an impressive 24ft in diameter and encompass many styles. All their summerhouses are easily assembled, featuring the company's unique system by which the wall sections are slid into corner uprights without the need for nails and screws.

The proven versatility of summerhouses will benefit any garden on many levels, and there are an exciting choice of styles and sizes, all manufactured using quality materials. Take time out to look through the impressive Summerhouse range on GardenSite and you're sure to find a design that exactly fits your requirements, and then your ideas and dreams will be turned into reality.
