It’s not too late to start your summer garden project

by TG Escapes | Aug 7, 2013 | Blog, Residential

We all start summer with an ambitious list of projects, plans and ideas for our gardens – however after July’s unexpected, but very welcome, heatwave you’d be forgiven for entering August without having transformed your outdoor space. Luckily, despite the dubious weather reports, summer hasn’t yet finished and there’s still time to create a Garden Escape you can enjoy all year long.

We understand that the paperwork and planning permission for construction projects can be daunting and off-putting, and that’s why our expert team manages every aspect of your design, from the planning process to the build itself. As a turnkey service, with an average build time of just 10 days, we can help make your garden a blissful space to entertain, create and relax in this summer.

Maybe this is the summer you’ve started a new hobby, and whether you’re an aspiring painter or a workout fanatic, having a studio separate from your house to explore and enjoy your interests will allow you to relax away from everyday distractions. If you’d like a space to concentrate on your art without being distracted by the spades and buckets in your garden shed, let our designers create a studio like Susan’s, that blends into her garden environment and maximises the natural light essential for her work.

Or perhaps your growing family is looking for an extra room, just like the Booths from Seer Green. Particularly during summer, their teenagers needed a space of their own to escape to and relax in; their Garden Escape created a space to spend time in away from the family home, without leaving their back garden!

Whether you opt for a cubed, curved or contemporary style, our team of dedicated architects will design your bespoke building with your specific needs in mind. But the styling of your new room doesn’t have to finish once we hand over the keys, there are lots of easy ways to personalise the design so it’s distinctly yours.

Adding colourful light fittings, throws and soft furnishings will help soften the interior and make it feel instantly homier, while incorporating fragrant houseplants such as gardenias, orchids and hyacinths will fill the space with fresh scents – and encourage a free-flow between your garden and your build.

If you’re looking for inspiration for low-maintenance planting suggestions to enhance your outdoor building, visit our guest blog by Adrien Valentine, MD of Perfect Pergolas, who offers ideas for adding a touch of nature to your structure, ranging from pots of pelargoniums to scented Star Jasmine climbers.

Whatever you have planned for this summer, we could help you create a bespoke Garden Escape for your family and friends to admire and enjoy in just under 2 weeks! Please contact us if you have any further questions, or would like a free, no obligation survey.
