This lovely customer photo shows the GardenLife Lovat summer house, which is specifically designed to sit in the corner of a garden - http://www.gardenlifelogcabins.co.uk/products/melanie-lovat/product-details.php. The Lovat is ideal for smaller gardens and is also available with a roof height under 2.5m (so planning applications aren't normally necessary).
A customer photo showing how they have sited the Wye clockhouse style summer house on a raised platform on a hill, with steps leading to the doors - http://www.gardenlifelogcabins.co.uk/products/chloe-wye/product-details.php
How about a beautiful clock-house style summer room for the garden? This Wye summer house (http://bit.ly/1HpCPov) has been painted with duck egg blue and finished with cedar shingles. The customer extended the usefulness of the summer house and added a paved area complete with loungers, table, chairs, planting and a chiminea for those colder evenings.
It might not be the most original or inspiring idea for a garden, but you can't beat a large immaculate lawn (perfect for football or pitch and putt) and a well positioned elegant summer house. Play a bit of sport then chill out in style! The Ribble octagonal summer house is available for £3218, including shipping, from GardenLife Log Cabins: http://bit.ly/1pl6EyF
If you're thinking about integrating a garden room within your new garden design, how about the unique (and incredibly) spacious Esk timber building? This customer photo shows the contemporary Esk with white washed walls, black window frames and an amazing decking area finished with a black stain. A real design statement in any garden.
I love the simplicity of this log cabin. Raised off the ground, sitting atop gravel, surround by plants, a good sized area of decking to sit out on, and a clean crisp white roof line. Unfortunately this model is no longer available, but the Blackadder log cabin is very similar: http://www.gardenlifelogcabins.co.uk/products/florence-blackadder/product-details.php
Need some inspirational decking ideas for the garden? How about the Clyde timber summer house atop a podium of decking? This photo, sent in by a GardenLife customer, is really unique, and it shows how decking and the incline of the garden can be used to create a stunning focal point. I just want to know what the views from the summer house itself look like!
An octagonal summer house can be used to punctuate garden design, or to link two different planting areas together. Painted in white, the Tweed summer house in this GardenLife photo adds real elegance to the garden.
If you've got a big garden, how about a traditional style log cabin as a place to escape, work or play? This customer photo shows the GardenLife Deben log cabin painted in pale green, brown and white - it looks perfectly at home in the woods!
