Why a Garden Pod is the Must-Have Workspace this Summer

As the world continues to embrace remote and hybrid working, setting up a long-term home office space has become part of the job for many of us.

If you don’t have a dining table that doubles as a desk or a spare room to convert into a hive of productivity, we’ve got a slightly more alternative – and appealing – solution for you.

With their modern design and hi-tech features, our Ornate Garden pods are the ideal way to create a stylish and practical workspace right in your back garden – with no planning permission required.

So, forget those companies on the Fortune 100 list – here’s why a garden pod is the actual best place to work in summer 2024.

Benefits of Using a Garden Pod as Your Home Office

  • Strike a Better Work-Life Balance
    One common challenge when working from home is maintaining a boundary between your professional and home life. Many of us are guilty of checking our emails on our phones after hours, and it’s even easier to slip back into work mode if your laptop is inches away from your sofa!

    A garden pod can help you to separate your work and home life. Setting up an office in the garden means you have a dedicated workplace that you can ‘leave’ when 5 pm rolls around (although, if you’re anything like us, you’ll probably want to stay and unwind with a cheeky alfresco wine – especially if the sun’s out!)

  • Improve Your Mental Health by Spending Time in Nature
    Our garden pods’ clear panels offer 360-degree views of your surroundings, so you’ll be more immersed in the natural world around you and can keep a close eye on all the birds and blooms. Say goodbye to artificial lighting and cubicle walls, and hello to enjoying your garden in all its glory!

    By getting you outside more, working in a garden pod can also have significant mental health benefits. Research shows that being more connected to nature can reduce stress and make people happier, contributing to better overall well-being. It can also help with creativity and concentration, so you might be more productive at work too – it’s a win-win!

  • Stay Connected with Built-In Electric Sockets and USB Ports
    Are you worried about being away from your modern home comforts in the garden? Never fear! Many of our outdoor pods come with electric sockets and USB options, to keep your laptop and other tech ready and raring to go – so you’ll have no excuse to miss that unexpected Teams call (sorry!)

  • Create a Cosy Climate with Lighting and Heating Options
    Integrated heating options will ensure your pod remains a comfortable environment to work in, no matter what the weather’s doing outside. And if the Great British summer delivers a scorcher, the stainless-steel roof will reflect the heat, and there are also cooling fan options. On cloudy days or if you’re working late, adjustable LED lights will keep your office orb illuminated.

  • Enjoy a Multi-Use Space for Relaxing and Unwinding
    As the saying goes, ‘Work hard, play harder!’. Your garden pod doesn’t have to only be for work; it can also serve as a stylish space for entertaining friends, dining outside or relaxing by yourself with a good book. Our larger pods can easily accommodate up to 14 people on their circular bench seats, making them the ultimate base for your next garden soiree!

  • Eliminate Stress – No Planning Permission Required!
    Another advantage of using an outdoor pod as your office is that they typically do not require planning permission. This makes them an easier and more affordable alternative to an extension or home renovation. Even better, installation is included for mainland UK customers, so you can be working in your incredible new office in no time – without lifting a finger!
