Garden Buildings

The range of potential buildings is vast, not only in terms of style, materials and size, but also with regard to how each is incorporated into its location. The more elegant make stand-alone focal points, whereas utilitarian buildings are discreetly tucked away out of sight. Others still are blended with planting or partly veiled beneath trees. The choice depends on the building's purpose and the proposed garden setting. At one end of the spectrum there are pavilions, rotundas and graceful gazebos, decorative structures designed to enhance the view whilst also providing an outdoor setting for elevenses, tea for two or sundowners. Then there are fantasy creations — follies, gypsy vardos, shepherds' huts, Japanese tea houses and seaside chalets, all contrived to conjure up distant memories.
