At Timberley Projects, we’ve been offering landscaping groundworks throughout West Sussex, Surrey and beyond for many years. Over recent months, for obvious reasons, we’ve seen an increase in clients who want to improve their garden spaces. A relatively warm UK summer has seen us installing decks, patios and outside entertaining areas. But winter is coming… So we thought we’d explore some of the structures and facilities that might help you continue to socialise in small groups outside (while observing the rule of six) in the cooler months.
Landscaping Groundworks for a Perfect Pitch!
There’s one thing that any temporary (or permanent) structure you erect in your garden will require. And that’s a good surface. The last thing you want is a gazebo that sinks or a marquee that slopes. That’s where we come in. As part of a complimentary site survey, our landscaping groundworks specialists advise on the suitability of garden areas for patios and decks that will provide a solid base for your chosen structure.
An Extra Room Outside:
If you want to continue to use patios and outside spaces over winter, here are a few ideas to investigate.
- A Wooden Garden Gazebo:
Miniature Manors are based just down the road from us. In Worthing, West Sussex. The company offers functional outdoor shelters that can be used for years to come. Visit the website.
- A Marquee:
When we mention the word marquee many people think ‘huge’! But most hire companies will be able to provide suitable solutions for smaller gatherings in your garden*. We recommend the good people at Petworth Marquees.
- A Summerhouse for Winter:
A summerhouse might be just the ticket for small garden gatherings, especially if it has its very own outside sitting area. We love some of the designs from A Room in the Garden in Brighton.
Remember you may need to seek planning consent for garden structures.
The Benefits of Using an Expert:
When it comes to preparing for the installation of your chosen extra room outside always work with a landscaping groundworks specialist, like Timberley Projects. There are a number of benefits:
- We have the tools and expertise to ensure the job is completed on time and within your budget.
- We help to future proof your garden design by laying ducting for cables and pipes that you may need further down the line. If you are considering automatic watering systems, outside electric heaters and lighting separate areas of your garden, we can make sure you get the services where you need them.
- We can also create paths to the covered oasis at the bottom of your garden, so you and your guests don’t get soggy hems or sinking heels!
