Take a look out of the window at your garden. Is it a place where you love spending time? If not, why not?

Think of all the ways you could transform your outdoor space into somewhere that you long to be. Here are just a few ideas of how to personalise your garden.

Extend your living space

Don’t let all that space go to waste. Garden rooms are an excellent way to extend your living area - and they’re much more affordable than having an extension built.

Unlike a conservatory, a garden room has a solid insulated roof, which means it has an even temperature. It doesn’t overheat in summer, and in winter it’s snug and cosy. A small radiator is usually all that’s needed to keep it warm, making it low on energy consumption.

Open the doors and windows of your garden room in summer time, and you have the benefit of being outdoors and under cover. Planning permission is generally not required for garden rooms, and structures of up to 30 square metres are exempt from Building Regulations unless they’re being used to sleep in.

Make more room with decking

Installing decking is another way to make the most of your garden. It’s ideal if you want to cover sloping or uneven ground. You could decide to have an elevated platform or even a split-level deck to bring new dimensions to your garden.

Decking provides a comfortable surface for walking and sitting, providing a great place to entertain and relax. It’s also ideal for covering up anything unsightly such as old paving or drains.

Decking is highly flexible and can be cut to any shape or size.

Choose your luxury item

If you could pick just one luxury item for your garden, what would it be? For many people, the answer to that question is a hot tub.

The ultimate in relaxation, a permanent hot tub lets you enjoy the uplifting properties of hot water hydrotherapy all-year-round. All you need is a solid, level surface and adequate clearance around the sides.

If you’d prefer to be under cover, a gazebo or canopy offers a stylish way to protect your hot tub.

Add a bespoke garden feature

How about a brick-built barbeque that can be used all year round? Another option that has become popular in recent years is a pizza oven. Transform your garden into a fun place to eat out.

Alternatively, a fire pit can become the focal point in summer and winter. By providing heat and light, you bring ambience to a cool evening and warmth on a chilly night.

Or what about having a bespoke playhouse built for your children in the shape of a fairy castle or a pirate ship? Meanwhile, you could watch the kids play from the comfort of your personally designed swing seat. These are just a few ideas of how you can personalise your garden and turn it into a space that enhances your life and brings you pleasure.
