There are those who say a Folly serves no purpose at all, but I tend to differ. Every garden needs structure and the amazing versatilty of our Folly Designs makes them the perfect backdrop or mainstay for a wide variety of garden scenes.
A quiet spot to sit and relax over a cup of tea can nestle in a romantic corner with views over the garden, but with a little privacy too. In the shade some ruined Spiral Steps catch the eye – a stairway to heaven perhaps.
Now that so many of us are working from home perhaps this garden space could double up as a delightful outdoor office or meeting room.
A more secret corner of the garden with a hint of historical intreague would be just the place to drift away into your thoughts at the end of the day surrounded by the shades and scents borne from all your hard work.
Both of these little garden gems can be beautifully framed through a medieval Secret Door with Rusty Wrought Iron Gate and hints of more gothic romance floating in the distance.
Elsewhere the Outdoor Kitchen with BBQ Surround, Herbs and a Large Ice Bucket, which is now a must have in any garden design, can nestle under rambling roses and a cloister of Tracery Windows. The Bell Tower Window above with blue sky beyond seems to await Juliet’s call.
Once the BBQ chef’s work is done then Alfresco Dining by candlelight is on the cards. An eclectic boho garden setting gently lit at dusk by charming lanterns adding to the mystery of this Folly in the Garden.
