Installation of the Month – October

Wimbledon - Outdoor Living Pod™

Outdoor Living Pod, Louvered Roof, Wimbledon, Pergola, Caribbean Blinds

During October we saw a drastic change in the weather as we dwelled deeper into autumn, the trees are bare and the leaves are piling up. The month was full of fun and excitement as we celebrated Halloween and watched the annual fireworks around the bonfire with family and friends. It was also a challenging and thrilling month for us as we had multiple large scale projects on the go that would certainly show off our ability to provide a spectacular outdoor living design.

Quality not Quantity

A wide range of products can often be confusing and sometimes poor quality.

Quality

When you visit a high end restaurant it is sometimes often easy to tell what sets it apart from its competitors and that is usually the small selection of fine food they have on their menu. A clear and precise menu that focuses on the quality of the ingredients and the experience it will leave you with. In other cases I am sure that we have all experienced it one time or another where we have sat down to eat in a restaurant and spent half the experience reading a menu that would put a child to sleep. When we are presented with a long list of options it can quite often be difficult to analyse what it is we actually need and want. This same method is applied to all of our other purchasing processes when it comes to the real world.

The Healthy Outdoors

An outdoor life can lead to a positive and productive lifestyle.

Outdoors, Garden, Reading

Spending time in the great outdoors has been proven to be beneficial to our health but most of us are cooped up inside surrounded by artificial lighting and then left wondering why we feel so tired. We use the term ‘get some fresh air’ when we are feeling stressed, contained or down but once we do retreat outdoors it rejuvenates us as the natural light and fresh oxygen comes into play, making us more alert, productive and feeling more positive.
