Rotating Garden Summer House


Chris Nicholson brought his rotating sphere over to my garden for the NGS open day as well as our recent MG Snowdrop Rally. We thought it would go rather nicely in front of the white stemmed birches. Even in winter it was a triumph, so how much better in summer? The modern use of aluminium and steel was quite at home amongst the gleaming bark of the ghostly birches, while the softly coloured pine structure looked perfect besides the burnished grasses further to the left.

What are the advantages? Well it rotates to give you the best view on a certain day or season; it can turn to avoid any wind; and it can turn you into full sun or shade depending on your whim. Best of all it takes up very little ground space.

People thought it was a sculpture at first and then realised it had a function; and what a function....to sit and muse, to have a dinner party or even to lounge in. For more information contact Chris tel. 07766 518940 E-mail: chris@stylish-gardens.com Website:www.stylish-gardens.com

Great little summer house. Is there any chance this could become a permanent feature?

I like the way you have used the birches in your garden. I imagine they are spectacular even on a cloudy day.
