Can A Garden Marquee Be Put Straight Up To Your House?
Honestly, in most cases, no. It completely depends on your house, garden, and doorway. Read on to find out what determines whether a garden marquee can be put straight up to your house.
Technically speaking, a marquee can be placed right next to a house, though it wouldn’t be attached. The problem comes with the doorway. If you have a low sliding door then yes, a garden marquee can be put right up to your house. If the door has to swing outwards, the marquee will be far enough back that the doors can open fully. Also, if your doorway has a step up into the house, you need to be weary of where the ceiling of the marquee will come to on the doorway – you don’t want your guests bumping their heads!
Many gardens start with a small patio area. This can create challenges if it is on a different level to the rest of the garden. Also, different hirers use different types of flooring. Some may need the whole area to be the same type of floor, and some may only be able to go on grass, etc. Make sure you tell your supplier what flooring you need the marquee to go on!
Some companies may have solutions to this issue. For example, companies which specialize in garden marquees may raise the floor of the marquee up to your house level, or build a mini stairway into the entrance. Others may use a covered walkway.
Other than this, most companies will be willing to work with you and advise on the best spot to place your marquee. We all just want to keep you and your guests happy!
So there you go! When looking for a marquee supplier, keep in mind your doorway and any obstructions your garden may have!
