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.

Usually gardens are associated with leisure, which is why garden rooms and spaces are regularly overlooked as good places to get your work done. The truth is, working in your garden or in a garden room can help your concentration and boost your productivity.

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.

Garden Spaces You’ll Love to Work From

Whether your prefer to work al fresco, or like the comfort of walls and electricity you’ll find inspiration for the best place to set up your makeshift office.

Working From the Summer House

A summer house is a beautiful setting for an temporary office. Light streams in through the many windows and your garden with all its wildlife is in full view. It’s a room that gives you a sense of freedom, away from the confines of your regular drab office.

Opening a window will help with air circulation and keep you feeling fresh. The recycled air of your normal workspace is bound to feel like a distant memory.

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.

An Outdoor Workspace

Working outdoors is a fair weather folly. It’s not something you can do in all seasons and it’s certainly not suitable for all weathers, however inviting your patio might look.

If working from your garden gives your productivity and vitamin D a boost, then you should take every opportunity presented.

Be cautious of a full day in the sun, wear sunscreen and protect your eyes. It might be worth working under a parasol to avoid sunstroke and keep your productivity booming. Another thing to watch out for is unexpected gusts of wind. If your job involved paperwork, your outdoor office needs a paperweight.

Office Garden Spaces

The work-from-home pros will have already invested in their garden office space. If you’re self employed and spend all your time working from home, this is a sound investment for your business.

A dedicated office you can work in all year round is a perfect place to work from home. With insulation, heating and double-glazed windows, you can’t go wrong with this type of garden room. It has all the benefits of working on the patio or in a summer house, with none of the hidden hassles.
