Q – I plan to splash out on a summerhouse this year to enjoy my garden more but i’m not quite sure where would be the best place to put it, any suggestions?

A – Because of its generally solid appearance a summerhouse needs to be positioned carefully particularly where space is at a premium, so that it does not dominate the whole garden. Ideally it should be sited to make the best use of available sunlight, and it should be linked to the rest of the garden and house by suitable paths or paving, giving easy and reasonably direct access.
