How secure are garden buildings?
Garden buildings can be incredibly secure and have the added benefit of being in a private space, making it less likely to be visible to pedestrians and others who pass your home. With our custom designs, we can incorporate generous locking systems depending on your requirements, giving you peace of mind that your building and its contents will be safe when you are not using them. For added confidence, motion detectors such as floodlights can be added to let you know when something is near your garden room.
Do I need planning permission?
Mos garden rooms don’t need planning permission as they are generally classed as outbuildings. As long as certain rules are adhered to and you have the correct development rights at your home, you are allowed to build one. We will be able to advise you of this further when we discuss your dream garden room design with you.
