About Lugarde

Lugarde has been designing and producing summerhouses, log cabins, verandas, carports, wooden garages, gazebos and holiday homes for more than 38 years. We offer a huge variety of designs and sizes and have the flexibility to fulfil your individual needs. We have dealers across the United Kingdom where you can view our products. Lugarde’s headquarters is located in Laren (the Netherlands) and we are active in our domestic market as well as worldwide.

Luxury in every detail

Lugarde offers high quality for a fair price. We have our own manufacturing and in-house design and drawing department, making us completely flexible and able to offer outstanding quality even for bespoke designs. Did you know that several famous Dutch people already own a summerhouse or log cabin made by Lugarde? The Dutch royal family and other European royal families trust our products and have Lugarde products in their gardens. This is an acknowledgement of our outstanding quality, and one that we are very proud of.

Key features

At Lugarde we offer both standard and bespoke products. Our bespoke design service is also fairly priced. Our summerhouses are of the highest quality and available at an affordable price. Furthermore, Lugarde offers various key features free of charge, such as double glazing fitted as standard, roof shingles included, free delivery (to the UK mainland), easy assembly and several other options. Providing a quality service is top priority for us at Lugarde. We also offer a 5 year guarantee on Lugarde products for manufacturing or construction faults.

Quality timber

Lugarde uses first class spruce from the northern countries where the climate is cold so the trees grow slowly. The growth rings are closer together, which makes the wood more stable and significantly denser. All of our timber is kiln dried in special drying rooms to approx 14-16% moisture content, reducing wood shrinkage.

Our history

In his early years, Bertus Wuestman, the founder of Lugarde, worked as a thatcher for his father. Soon his customers wanted not only a thatched roof but were also interested in buying summerhouses. In 1978 Bertus developed a booth with a thatched roof, and this was just the beginning of the Lugarde story. Many other summerhouses were to follow, with other types of roofing materials, and during this time Lugarde expanded to become a business offering dozens of summerhouses along with other products.

Bertus still works within the family business. His daughter Andrea and son Thomas now work for Lugarde. Andrea Wuestman has been director-owner since 2016. The Prima Andrea and Prima Thomas summerhouses are named after them. Today around 80 people work for Lugarde in administration and production, and their primary objective is to make every single customer completely satisfied.

In 2001 Lugarde invented the ‘Prima 3=1 system’. This system’s side walls consist of milled wall sections which fit precisely into the corresponding corner uprights. This is made possible with aluminium strips. These are fitted on the inside of the corner uprights. This system enhances the strength and durability of our summerhouses while still allowing movement. The walls are put together without any nails or screws. The ‘Prima 3=1 system’ means our summerhouses can be assembled simply.

The new Pro-system, which is designed and manufactured by Lugarde, has robust laminated posts of 14 cm x 14 cm which the wall elements easily slide into. Our Pro-system products provide a very robust and modern look.

Our new innovation is the unique 3D configurator for summerhouses, log cabins, gazebos and more. You can easily create your own garden building and view it from any desired perspective. Now you no longer have to imagine what your future bespoke garden building will look like – you can experience it in 360°.
