This is what a Folly is for
Hot Tubs in Garden Design
For some time now I’ve wanted to take on the challenge of how to incorporate a hot tub sympathetically in a garden design.
Our Folly at The Stoneworks Show Garden provides the perfect setting and backdrop to meet all your outdoor living ideas.
Many of the 18th century Follies were used for dining and entertaining. We think this alfresco garden scene fits the bill perfectly.
Here it is, our BBQ surround complete with Ice Bucket and work surfaces. Now we can set about decorating it and setting it up as a working outdoor kitchen.
We have built a delapidated wall linking last years’ Potting Shelter Garden to the Ruined Bell Tower with a broken doorway leading to the Spiral Steps.
The Start - why, how & when?
Here is a selection of videos from our Stoneworks Show Garden Spring Updates. A charming Gothic Folly complete with cottage garden planting to enhance it, and a couple of spring gardening tips.
