More Log Cabins Articles A variety of garden buildings are to be erected and restored as part of a huge renovation project at a public garden in Cumbria.
The Big Lottery and Heritage Lottery funds have announced an award of £3 million for the project at The Green in Silloth, which has been organised as part of the Parks for People scheme, BBC News reported.
According to the news outlet, the renovation will also include the reinstatement of various historic structures including a Victorian pagoda, rose garden and Edwardian toilets.
"All proposals respect The Green's heritage and traditional ambience," said a spokesman for Parks for People.
"There will be sculptures, a nature trail and new shelters, seats and bins. Unsightly features such as a maintenance yard and recycling centre will be taken out to increase the natural beauty of the area."
Homeowners and organisations seeking to improve garden areas could also choose to erect stylish garden buildings like a log cabin or summer house. Work on the project at The Green is expected to start in the New Year.
