Garden Structures

Garden Structures

Structures can provide your garden with functionality: greenhouses to grow tender species, sheds to store tools or cloches to protect vulnerable planting. They can also add another dimension to your planting design scheme, with structures such as pergolas, raised beds or rock gardens.

In this section you'll find advice and step-by-step instructions on creating all these items, including tips on choosing the right materials and construction guides.
