Super Structures Every Garden Needs


We all love our gardens. Some of us may care for our gardens more than others, but the love is the same; it is our little piece of the great outdoors. Flowers, trees, a mowed lawn, decking, patio, barbecue, pond; you name it, we all have something that makes our garden special. But there is one thing little upgrade that can take a garden from just pretty to pretty darn usable, and that is a structure, and that is where we are going to act as your inspiration. Think of it as a little garden project you can undertake this summer. No need to thank us.

The Shed Of Your Dreams
This is a must-have for every garden, but while it was traditionally just a place to store your garden tools, it has evolved into something much, much more. A garden shed is now a place that allows you to de-clutter your garden, provide a comfortable workspace, let you go about doing your bits and bobs come rain or shine and act as a truly magnificent backdrop to your most prized plants and flowers. That’s not all, though, because while all sheds were once bland and boring the latest trend is geared towards big and bold. So go and have some fun with your shed, inside and out.

Work From Home, Sort Of
More and more people are working from home for two reasons; better technology and the demand for a better work/life balance. But why stay cooped up in your office-come-spare bedroom when you could enjoy being in the midst of your garden. There is surely not a more inspiring setting anyway; a home away from home. What’s more, the options are endless, as sites like will attest. Converted stables, a repurposed shipping container, a glorified shed covered in glass. Whatever your taste there is a space for you. Basically, your garden is your oyster.

The Perfect Pergola
The thing that can take a normal patio away from the everyday and into a exceptional place is more often than not a pergola. It just gives your seating area an extra edge, it encloses the space to make it more personal and yet more grandiose. It gives your garden a centerpiece and one that encourages you to make your patio area your favorite room in the house. A seating area that is tucked away under a rosebush vine, a chandelier hanging down above a fire pit. That is how to bring a new dimension to your garden; a simple structure that offers up some truly charming options.

We’re Having A Tea Party
When we were young whippersnappers all we wanted to do was get outside and play because being inside was boring. There was nothing to do, and it wasn’t even that long ago. Nowadays, though, kids don’t want to go outside because there is so much distraction inside; television, phones, the internet, consoles, you name it. That’s where a gorgeous playhouse like the ones on can have real sway, a place for them to exercise their imaginations, to play and explore and get up to quant no good. What’s more, they don’t even have to be expensive to be good.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
