Fantastic Covered Space
If you plan to use your garden room for entertaining, a veranda will give you oodles of space to take advantage of. When you design your veranda, be sure to think about what you are going to put underneath it. Many people like the way a wooden deck looks, but hardscaping is great too. A veranda and patio will give you an area where you can sit and enjoy your garden, and still have protection from the elements.
A covered patio will give you a great space for having Summer fun with friends. If you want to do something more natural feeling, you can add landscaping below your veranda, and use your gardens to fill in the space. No matter what form appeals to you, a veranda will offer you opportunities for creating a style that is all your own. The covered space it creates is always useful, so think about how you want to show off what you love.
