Posted Apr 16, 2020, Category: Advice

If you’re looking to buy a garden room or a bespoke garden log cabin, it would only make sense to have a garden to admire. As you probably know, there are many types of gardens that can be built around a garden room. Depending on your location and weather conditions, garden plants can vary in shape, size and arrangement.

In this post, we will cover a few popular types of gardens that can have a glulam garden room as a centrepiece. Always remember that gardens can be as intricate or as simple as you want them to be. If you’re starting from scratch, this blog post can be a great source of inspiration. If you’re looking to include a glulam small house into your existing garden, this post can also help you decide how to best go about it.

English country garden

This type of garden aims to mimic the natural English countryside, which has a lot of open grass fields and wild flowers. It’s great option to include a garden room in. You will have ample room for a small glulam structure because of the style’s demand to have open area for the grass to grow. English gardens are also known for their stone henges and general inclusion of stones as separators of different areas of the garden.

A beautiful thing about English gardens that they also diverge into different styles. An English garden can be a pure rose garden – roses of all colours surrounding your garden room like a fairytale. They can also be a Victorian style gardens that are known for the neatness and statues present in their most traditional form. Whichever type you choose, an English garden will always have some space for a cozy garden room.

Japanese garden

The perfect type of garden to plant a garden room in the middle. The very structure of a Japanese garden stems from a building (like a teahouse) in the middle and then spans out with flowers, trees and rocks. Japanese garden can be hard to build and maintain if you don’t have a lot of land. They usually incorporate rocks, water – flowing or a brook – tiny bridges and lanterns. Japanese gardens also hold a tradition of footpaths that lead to and from your garden room. This is why it might be the ideal choice to incorporate a small summer garden cabin.

Mediterranean garden

These types of gardens are known for their awesome courtyards and tile patios. Mediterranean gardens are known for their flowers blooming throughout the year, one ofter another. This is achieved through a  careful selection of plants that in different times of the year and hence can be replicated even in colder climates. The essence of a Mediterranean garden lies in its ability to host a group of people. That is why patios and courtyards are so important. This is a great opportunity to incorporate a larger garden room into your garden. That way, you can host a your friends and family, while they admire the sequence of various blooming flowers.

Modern garden

A great choice for a garden, if you don’t have a lot of soil to work with. Modern gardens are known to favour geometry over wild growth that is observed in English and Mediterranean gardens. Here concrete or stone slabs take the centre of attention, while plants are limited to trees, lawns and simple, geometric greenery.

In a modern garden, instead of a garden room, BBQ huts can be a great choice. Just as modern gardens are more functional and require less maintenance, so BBQ hut serves a function. Placed as a centrepiece on a stone slab, it can be a great gathering location. It might also serve as a small sauna, or a bigger BBQ hut can also house guests as they stay over.

Native garden

It’s the newest fashion for gardens, sweeping across the US and other parts of the world. The main idea of Native gardens is to use only the plants that are native to the region the garden is in. While this is an extremely eco-friendly approach to gardening and can help many native fauna and flora to flourish, it also leaves a lot to the imagination. Since this type of garden doesn’t have strict rules about arrangement, you can place a garden room or a BBQ hut anywhere you want. Just make sure the plants are native to your area!
