The gardens of the UK, which can include small and large summerhouses, are one of our prized possessions because of the many uses for it. It’s a place to relax with family, friends or on your own so you can enjoy the solitude. It’s a haven away from the day to day tribulations of life, and the greenery in the garden makes you realise what a great world we live in.
We tend to look after the garden and buy many items to use in it or to help us enjoy the garden. The cost of these varies from very inexpensive items, such as packets of flower seeds, which we can watch and admire when the colour bursts out as they grow, to highly expensive summerhouses with all the ‘bells and whistles’. However, in the sensible world, you will find that summer buildings are among the top five garden items.
And it not hard to understand why. With the sheer versatility of what can be done with them and the sheer number of sizes and designs, from companies such as 1st Choice Leisure Buildings, you will find that the garden building can meet your exacting requirements. Add in that most of the other garden items bought will be stored in then it’s only amazing that it’s not number one.
Research carried out found that garden table and chairs are the number one purchase by homeowners followed by plants and flowers. The essential lawnmower is then high on the list, whether it’s an electric, petrol or battery one. You will find sales of the old fashioned, but eco-friendly, ‘push-pull’ lawn mowers are relatively low, and I can’t blame people would looking for more comfortable options.
By doing so, they can enjoy barbecues in the garden with their family and friends. The sight of a burnt sausage or a chicken leg falling into the charcoal is all part of the ritual. However, they are very dependent on the weather because at the first sign of rain the barbecue is back in the shed. But not always. I have barbecued in the rain before, and it’s quite an enjoyable experience to share strangely. Barbecues are about 3rd or 4th on the list of most popular garden items.
The question is ‘what would we do without out sheds, summer houses and garden buildings’ as they are essential to our life.
