Start the New Year with a New Garden Building

January is an excellent time to make changes in your life. It’s when we reassess what’s important to us and start new hobbies with ‘gusto’. A garden building, log cabin, new greenhouse or garden pod can accommodate these changes by adding another ‘room’ to your home.

Want to see your friends more? We’re confident they’ll gladly stop by for wine and nibbles hosted in your new igloo, pod or bar. Based outdoors yet surrounded by nature, our log cabin and insulated buildings will become multipurpose spaces such as yoga studios, craft rooms and home (or should that be garden?) offices.

Following installation, you’ll be able to spend more days in the garden, planting and admiring the beautiful floral displays you’ve grown in your new greenhouse…all year round!

These eight incredible garden buildings will help you to relax 12 months of the year. Simply consider your needs for 2022 – including the activities you want to devote your time to – and take your pick:

1. Luxury Rotating Seater Garden Pod

Luxury Rotating Seater Garden Pod

This sleek garden pod from Ornate Garden would even amaze the crowds at the Chelsea Flower Show. Shielding up to seven very impressed people – thanks to its 360 degree rotation – you can always add a winter cover (sold separately) for immediate use. We say ‘why wait until springtime?’.

Constructed from six sturdy laminate treated spruce arcs, tinted windows, in-built lighting and a stainless steel roof that’ll offer shade come summer time, you can choose the water-resistant upholstery covers in six shades.

Bring on relaxed family evenings – once our fitting team has installed it for you. This is included for mainland UK customers.

2. Astreea Igloo 360 Dome with Oslo PVC Weatherproof Cover

Astreea Igloo 360 Dome with Oslo PVC Weatherproof Cover

This beautiful weatherproof dome by Astreea is another panoramic garden building – but with a twist. Its sturdy aluminium frame is made from aerospace-grade materials, so is light enough to be moved for an alternative view. We think it’s ‘out of this world’.

The three available sizes are perfect for dinner parties. Starting at medium (4-6 people), there’s also a large (6-10 people) and extra-large (accommodating 16 people) option.

Or, maybe you’ll recreate your favourite restaurant on romantic date nights under the stars. There’s a Philips lighting system, UK plug and racks all ready to go for twinkling string lights.

3. Alvantor Pop Up PVC Bubble Tent

Alvantor Pop Up PVC Bubble Tent

Why should your garden have all the fun, when this stylish pop-up bubble tent is easily transported in its handy carry bag. Opening in just 30 seconds, you won’t be waiting long to enter.

Available in three sizes, the transparent cover on the Alvantor Pop Up Bubble Tent is made from a strong PVC material that allows your favourite people to look out and enjoy their surroundings.

It’ll make a great addition to glamping trips too, as no ground foundation is required. Found somewhere lovely on a day out? All you need to do is anchor it using the provided stakes, guy lines and sandbags.

4. Large Oval House Garden Pod

Large Oval House Garden Pod

If you’re going to ‘splurge’ on a garden ‘room’ this January, why not select one that’s bound to take your breath away?

UK made, it’ll meet the needs of your family’s different generations. Create a light-filled den or homework space for little ones and teens who want to spend time in this super cool pod.

Utilise its bluetooth connectivity, and repurpose its two tables as matching desks in you and your partner’s upgraded ‘home office’ – you’ll never drain your battery thanks to its electrical supply.

Then, invite your parents around for coffee evenings without the chill (heating is included).

13 guests can unwind from the festive season on the pair of sofas and 75mm padded cushions. The lockable French doors will also protect your investment. Installation is once again included for mainland UK customers.

5. Forest Garden Mendip Double Glazed 5m x 4m Log Cabin

Forest Garden Mendip Double Glazed 5m x 4m Log Cabin

Have you vowed to cut back on your carbs and get fit this year?

We believe that this 20 square metre log cabin from Forest Garden ‘ticks all of the boxes’ as a versatile (and double glazed) gym or yoga studio.

An ideal retreat from the world, you may decide to also add a dining table, sofa or desk. After all, this will be ‘the place’ where everyone wants to spend their time.

Just imagine the aroma of the interlocking logs – crafted from sustainable FSC® certified timber. Simply lock and leave … until the next time.

6. Rowlinson Garden Bar

Rowlinson Garden Bar

Be ‘the garden’ everyone congregates in and look forward to the lighter nights returning, with this fun garden bar.

It’s a practical size (190x184cm externally) that doubles up as a shed for storing bicycles, lawnmowers and garden toys, when not being used to serve your signature cocktails.

Serve your garden guests from the two serving hatches, sit under the overhanging roof when the sun makes its return, and avoid having to treat it upon delivery – it’s seven-point 12mm shiplap cladding has already been stained a warm honey-brown shade.

7. Forest Garden Xtend 3 Plus Insulated Garden Building

Forest Garden Xtend 3 Plus Insulated Garden Building

Does the new year mark the launch of your new business or hobby?

Working and taking calls amidst family noise isn’t always ideal – so this 4mm thick double glazed structure is suitable for all seasons.

With an EPC energy rating of C, this insulated garden building offers you a striking office or studio alternative. Within the contrasting anthracite grey and light panelled exterior, it’ll take the routing of electrical wiring and recess lighting internally.

Then, lock and leave your equipment after work or play – you can trust the seven point multi-lock system.

We make no apologies for your neighbours ‘garden envy’.

8. Forest Garden 10x8 Vale Greenhouse

Forest Garden 10×8 Vale Greenhouse

The last two years have seen a boom in people taking up gardening.

Whilst this traditional garden building enables you to grow immensely satisfying ‘fruit and veg’, spending time inside its FSC® wooden frame can also increase your wellbeing.

With two long shelves alongside automatic windows and a vent in the roof, think of it as the garden building that keeps on giving, by growing plants that’ll add interest to your garden year-round.

Installation is included and you can reflect your surroundings by staining or painting its (rot-resistant) pressure-treated timber to suit you. Reduce worries over breakages due to the 4mm toughened glass panels.
