A to Z Outdoor Design Guide: Eco Garden Room

Garden rooms are quick and easy to construct and may not require planning permission. They come fully insulated and are as sturdy as a traditional house. Plumbing can be connected to the main water supply and the electrics routed directly from the house. A garden room can be used as a home office, granny flat, art studio, gym, games room, outdoor kitchen and more.

When warm weather arrives, most people prefer to be outside as much as possible, making their outdoor space more than just a garden. Today, backyards are multi-purpose areas that reflect personal interests and personalities, and they’re often used for the same activities that take place indoors. A backyard can serve as a much-needed retreat that – when well-designed and decorated – can increase a home’s usable space.

In the weeks ahead, we’ll look at the backyard by letter, in an A to Z guide, full of smart and stylish outdoor decor ideas, along with useful garden elements.
