Why Choose a Modern Pergola over a Traditional One?

You can get more for your money with an aluminium louvered pergola.

Traditional Pergola, Pergola

When it comes to garden design a pergola is an attractive feature to implement as it serves as a dedicated shaded outdoor living area to relax in and it provides an aesthetic appeal to your external space. Most traditional wooden pergolas can be made bespoke to your requirements to coincide with your landscape design but are these traditional wooden pergolas enough anymore?

The end of garden rooms?

Garden Room

Garden buildings do what they say on the tin, they provide another room away from the home in the garden that can be used for a multitude of things, from a home office, to a gym or even housing a hot tub, however, when it comes to outdoor living they lack a true connection to the garden as even with the windows and doors open they are still enclosed due to the permanent roof….

We are pretty sure that most people would agree when we say that we are glad that the cold winter days are behind us, despite the weather not feeling too much like spring at the moment but at least the ‘Beast from the East’ is nowhere to be seen. The dark days and chilly mornings can really set the tone of the day, the struggles of getting your car defrosted ready for the gruelling commute to work and to then get back home whilst it is still dark can really dampen the mood.

With the arrival of Spring and the extended Easter bank holiday underway our thoughts turn to outdoor living, with many of us looking to prepare and revitalise our gardens, ready to enjoy alfresco living to the full.

There is nothing quite like the ambience of being outside, however, the unpredictable British weather often spoils and dampens the use of the terrace.

A key design feature to consider therefore when investing in your garden is providing flexible shade and shelter, that enables you to enjoy your outdoor space come sun, wind, rain or even snow.

Commercial Alfresco Settings

Are you missing out on potential business?

Budapest, Hungary, Parliament, Bridge

After our recent visit to Budapest there was something that we noticed in a country that experiences far colder temperatures than the United Kingdom, they sure did have a lot of alfresco options in place at their restaurants and coffee shops. The business proprietors took full advantage of their space by providing the alfresco option, whether it is an awning or a canopy they were usually fully fitted with heaters and side screens to help maintain an appropriate atmosphere to serve customers. The weather is very unpredictable in Hungary but at least they were always prepared for that sudden change.

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.

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.
