A couple of weeks ago the Garden Office HQ team headed to the Chelsea Flower Show. While we were there, we had a look at the beautiful treehouse that Blue Forest was exhibiting. Treehouses are no longer just for kids; Blue Forest will design you a treehouse that would make the most wonderful garden office.
Built on ground screw foundations
When exhibiting a building at a show like the Chelsea Flower Show it has to have a solid foundation for people to safely go inside it, but when the show is over, there can be no trace that it was ever there.
To meet this requirement, Blue Forest made use of the ground screw systems provided by Stopdigging. They tweeted a video clip of the foundations being easily, and cleanly removed from the showground as they packed up after the show.
Check this out. @StopDiggingGT ground screw foundations are amazing. No messing around with concrete and diggers for us. Thanks guys pic.twitter.com/QskYi29Voh

Many garden office firms are using these ground screws
Many garden office firms are using these ground screws as the foundation for their buildings. They are choosing them over the other foundation options as they come in varying lengths, which can overcome a host of site conditions and problems.
Ground screws come into their own on sloping sites as they can be precisely set to the right heights to create a level platform, with the help of laser levels.
The screw piles are driven into the ground with a special machine, with the thread of the screw biting into the ground. It is a very clean process with little disruption to the garden, certainly less disruption than other foundation systems create as they installed.
Ground screws can be cleanly removed from the site if they need to be
As the video clip above shows, should you ever need to remove your garden office from your garden, it can be cleanly done. The whole process can be done in just an hour or so. Without creating much disruption or mess in the garden.
