One of the most useful aspects of landscaping today is the garden room. A garden room is much like a room in the home which has a particular look, theme or purpose. Garden rooms can be for entertaining, relaxing, cooling off, to make a statement or impression or for utility purposes. Tailoring the function, layout or style of each room makes it more enjoyable to use and like your home, enables you to incorporate different styles if desired. Each garden room can be as formal or relaxed as you like, why not a tropical rain-forest pool surround a French provincial courtyard or a Spanish villa?
