How to Grow a Garden Room

Garden room
When you’re creating a garden room, plan around a specific theme.

 

You love the fresh air and natural light of the outdoors and the comfort of the indoors. Why not bring them together? When you create a garden room, you can do just that, combining the beauty of the garden with the amenities of an indoor space.

What Do Garden Rooms Look Like?

A garden room can be an indoor space that opens to and is heavily influenced by its adjacent outdoor space, or it can be a section of your garden that you treat as a thematic living space. You could have a herb-themed garden that integrates with a barbecue and seating area for guests, so that everyone can enjoy delicious dinners infused with fresh herbs. A garden room is typically enclosed or bounded. For instance, you might create a quiet retreat edged by a privacy hedge. Whatever the theme, a garden room is not just a garden, it’s a purposeful living space.

Why Do You Want a Garden Room?

When you’re growing a garden room, you need to think about why you want one. What need will this room fill for you and your family? You might have a garden shed that you convert into an indoor-outdoor meditation retreat and leads out to a fountain, a bench, or a rock garden. You might create a children’s play area that’s bounded by a low fence and that connects to a mudroom. Whatever your reason, be clear about your motivation before you begin your design. This will help you choose the elements of your room.

Plan your garden room with comfortable features like benches.

 

Make Yourself Comfortable

One common aspect of the garden room is the addition of home-like elements into the landscape. While you can certainly have a thematic garden without these elements, a garden such as a sensory garden is so much richer if there’s a bench to sit on that’s surrounded by pots of fragrant flowers and under an arbor of wisteria or honeysuckle.

Think About Your Walls

Garden rooms generally have a beginning and an end. When you’re creating a garden room, let the theme dictate how it will be bounded. While a meditation labyrinth may only need a low rock wall around it, a children’s garden designed for safe exploration and play will need a higher fence or hedge.

Integrate Indoors and Out

When you’re creating a garden room, consider how this room integrates with the other rooms in your living space. A food-themed outdoor room may lead to the kitchen, a children’s garden to the mudroom, and a meditative space can lead to the study. When you’re planning the intersection of these indoor and outdoor spaces, pay attention to the transition zone. Make sure that doors open easily into the garden room and that gutter systems, window boxes, and other parts of your home complement rather than detract from the garden space.

When you’re creating new landscaping around your home, you need to make sure that your home roofing, siding, and gutter systems will keep your home looking tidy.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
