The style: Greenhouse

If you want to make the most of the outdoors this summer, garden rooms provide a flexible living space in all weathers. Sit back and enjoy the view

The style: Greenhouse

These elegant, Victorian-style greenhouses by Alton are crafted using high-quality western red cedar from sustainable sources. The extra height allows the air to circulate, which helps to grow healthier plants and produce. Available at Ruxley Manor Conservatories and Leisure Buildings, Sidcup.

The style: Gazebo

A gazebo or pavilion not only acts as an elegant focal point for the garden, it can also be a great way of defining an alfresco dining area. This Gainsborough gazebo by Rowlinson sits perfectly against the colours of the surrounding foliage, available at Paddock Wood Garden Centre, Tonbridge.

The style: Summerhouse

Pictured is the Newhaven summerhouse by Scotts of Thrapston, designed to fit neatly into the corner of the garden. It's finished throughout in pressure-treated timber which comes in a range of colours. The luxury upholstery set includes seating with backrest supports. 01832 732366.
