GARDEN CHILL OUT ROOMS & OUTDOOR OFFICES
2020 has seen a surge in the erection of outdoor garden buildings at residential properties and hospitality locations. With the furlough scheme initiated, homeowners found the time to focus on home projects and converted that unused garden space into a recreational or working area. Outdoor areas in pubs and bars, including chill-out areas, became very popular given the hospitality restrictions. Homeworking became a necessity for many and with 38% of homeworkers in 2020, and only 12% of people wishing to return to an office environment, it looks like home working is set to become the future norm.
LANDSCAPING YOUR GARDEN TO ACCOMMODATE AN OUTDOOR BUILDING
The installation of these buildings gives a dramatic new look to your garden space. It is equally as important to create an inviting approach and setting for your outdoor building to ensure it becomes an attractive feature that enhances your space and not just an isolated shed at the bottom of your garden. Landscaping your garden to accommodate your new space is key and TCS offers several products that can assist with your outdoor building’s aesthetic appeal.
WEED & ROOT BARRIERS
Whilst you wish to enjoy your newly developed landscape garden with minimal maintenance costs, utilise DuPont™ Plantex® & Terram, weed and root barriers to ensure you keep unwanted weeds and invasive species, like bamboo, under control.
- Weed control fabric which avoids the use of chemicals
- Lightweight and simple to install
- Maintenance-free and resistant to microbiological and chemical attack

BERA Gravel Fix® Pro is a landscaping paviour designed to be used for gravel paths and driveways. It is a lightweight paviour and keeps your gravel surface fixed in position whilst offering stability whilst you walk to your new space. Using the BERA Gravel Fix® Pro system will create an inviting pathway straight to your office, retreat or outdoor pub area.
As landscaping develops, new ideas are brought to the garden. Gabion baskets have become a new feature to be introduced into the residential landscaping scene. They are available in many sizes to accommodate any size garden and can be utilised as a garden border, small retaining walls for terracing or seating.
Water features and ponds have been a part of landscaping for years. TCS offer many different grades of impermeable geomembrane liners to be used in these applications.
