Garden structures

Building structures in the garden is fun or rather it’s not serious. However, if you are building anything large, check out the regulations see the regulation topic section.

Garden structures give you a chance to show your individuality – why should the trellis be dead square or the shed have a boring, standard pitch, felt roof. The book Gardens Buildings manual contains a lot of material but I’m happy to give advice and try out ideas for structure and designs.
