Garden spaces can often be neglected areas when it comes to working from home. Often spare bedrooms and dining tables double up as an office when people work remotely.

Being surrounded by fresh and greenery (even if you’re in a summer house with a window open), can lower your blood pressure and increase your mood. Having something to look at, especially if that something is plant life can ‘increase your happiness and productivity.’
Armed with the knowledge garden spaces are great to work from, below is a list of wonderful places to get your work done.

If your summer house is set up with comfy furniture, a folding table might make improve your comfort.
Depending on what type of summer house is on your property, it may not be suitable for working in during the colder months. Summer houses without heating or insulation can get very cold, very quickly.
