Our Story


We're Rod & Debs Winrow, and we've been inspiring people to live outdoors since 1996.

We are a family-run garden design and construction company based in Ferring, West Sussex and provide outdoor services for our lovely commercial and domestic clients across the UK. We started small, but over the years the Garden House Design family has grown into a team of dedicated professionals who are as passionate as we are about outdoor spaces. We love what we do! Why? Because we love to live outdoors and enjoy working with our clients to release the potential within their gardens.

From kids camps to canopies with style

Growing up on completely different sides of the world, an English South Coast kid and a Kiwi growing up in the East Coast Bays of Auckland, our childhoods were full of making camps, climbing trees, hanging at the beach, and having adventures. Our love for outdoor adventures has never really left us. After 30 years together, with a wonderful daughter, a couple of crazy cats and a business to be proud of, we are still making camps for ourselves (our beach hut being a prime example).

{Side note: Our daughter's middle name is Summer! Why? Well, if you join our worlds together you get one continuous summer! Another nod to our love of living outdoors}.

Now we get to design and help our clients make their own "camps". The designs we develop are unique for each client and ready to share with their family and friends. Some might include a fabulous kitchen, generally a bar (for grown-ups of course!), firepits, sofas, music, laughter and more.
