6 Beautiful Outdoor Garden Building Ideas

Spring officially starts in a little over two months time.  Good news for those of us longing for warmer weather and more sunshine!  And whilst we wait for the 20th of March to arrive, now is a good time to start working on your garden plans for the year ahead.

To create a striking and beautiful focal point in your garden or landscape this year, why not consider investing in an elegant garden building?

As well as adding a beautiful, structural centrepiece, garden buildings offer lots of practicality and enable you to enjoy your garden views all year round.

In our latest blog we explore six outdoor garden building ideas for all outdoor spaces.


  • Haddonstone orangery



Elegant and refined, the modern orangery provides luxurious additional living space to be enjoyed throughout the seasons.  A picture-perfect place to relax, dine and entertain, a carefully designed and crafted orangery will bring the outside in, adding masses of appeal and functionality to any outside space.

Orangeries were originally designed back in the 17th century to protect sun-loving citrus, tropical and ornamental trees throughout the colder winter months.  These days, these sophisticated garden buildings are used to expand your living space, offering an alternative place in which to relax, dine and entertain.

With expansive glazing, orangeries invite oodles of natural light into your home and can be used all year round.

As a bespoke garden building, the price of producing and installing an orangery is on application and will depend on the size, scale, features and your preferred design.  It’s worth noting that adding a high-quality orangery to your home can add significant value to your property.

Elegant and versatile, classical temples are charming stone structures that can truly enhance a garden or landscape. They add effortless style, whilst offering superb panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, lawn or garden.  Temples can even provide an exceptional seating area in which to relax.

Our stonework can be used to create beautiful garden temples to suit a range of garden styles.  While a relatively small garden building, they can have a significant visual effect, acting as a mood-evoking focal point that draws the eye wherever you are.  Temples can be created using a combination of our components, including balustrading, columns, flooring and steps.

Whether it’s small or large, classic or balustraded, or a completely bespoke design, we have a variety of options available.  Our technical team and expert craftsmen will work closely with you to understand your requirements so that we can supply components to meet your unique specification.

We can even provide the matching flooring for your temple.

Constructed of columns and pillars, and often used as walkways or passageways, a pergola is a wonderful way to add structure to a garden or landscape.

Ideal for climbing plants, pergolas offer shelter from the sun and can act as a privacy barrier in a garden patio, pool area or terrace.

Whether freestanding or an extension of a building, pergolas can be used in a multitude of ways to really bring together all the elements of a garden.

Our pergolas have been designed for the M7 Tuscan column range, and can be supplied for column spacings of up to 1829mm.  We are able to provide our clients with a list of installers who are best suited to work with our products.


Follies, sometimes known as grottoes or ruins, have a unique and almost magical element to them.  Sometimes Classical, sometimes Gothic in style, follies were popular in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries due to their aesthetically romantic qualities.

Whether designed as a celebration of an event or person, or simply as a beautiful view point, a folly can inject personality and intrigue into any modern garden today.

Our follies are comprised of a selection of our architectural stonework components, including columns, quoins, balustrading and entablatures.  Each component is handmade to order, with bespoke sizes and designs available on request.

  • belvedere


The Belvedere is an impressive structure that serves a number of purposes. A s well as enabling people to take advantage of a scenic view of a garden or landscape, a Belvedere also offers shelter from the elements.

Square in plan, a Belvedere utilises some of our standard architectural components including balustrading, columns, cornices and architraves.

Our standard Belvedere design stands at a height of 3205mm (126 ¼”) with a base width of 2193mm (86 ⅜”).

Should you require components to suit a different specification, our technical team will be able to work with you to meet your requirements.
