Alex, the MD of Booths Garden Studios, was given a Smarta Award which highlighted top innovative companies - companies who were “game changers”.
The panel of judges included Deborah Meaden and the fact that Alex’s garden offices are zero maintenance along with unique guarantees (like “we’ll take your garden studio back if you don’t like it!”)
Booths were seen as a company at the forefront of the huge surge in the popularity of garden rooms.
The figures back this up showing that Booths turned over half a million in 2009, £1M in 2010, £1.2M in 2011 and £1.5M in 2012 - All of this growth during a dire economic outlook for the UK economy.
The QC Garden Studio has been the backbone of this growth. The “QC” stands for “Quarter Century” since the exterior of this garden studio needs no maintenance for at least 25 years.
Everyone is very busy these days so not having to spend weekends painting or staining a garden studio to maintain it’s looks, is very appealing.
Timber inevitably changes it’s look as it gets older whilst the QC doesn’t. Booths actually stopped supplying timber studios in January 2012 for these reasons.
Alex also met Theo Paphitis and one of the "new" dragons, Piers Linney ( below) at the Smarta Awards in London.

Dear Iain, Alex and all the other contributors to my garden room,
I just wanted to say I'm delighted with my special garden space. For the last couple of weeks I've been working out there on my days I'm not in school and I love it! Even though at present I just have an old garden chair in there, it's so calming and relaxing but conducive to getting work done! All whilst being able to watch my garden squirrel, dragonflies, bats in the early evening, etc. Many thanks for your super product!
I've ordered my furniture for it this weekend so I should be all sorted by Christmas!
Thanks again to you all,
"Terrific home studio - a place where I can practice my wargaming to try to
win my world championship back - and its much warmer in the winter than any
wargames club (warmer than my house in fact). And a great place for me to
work as well! Thoroughly recommend Booths to anyone - great building and as
importantly great service from the central team and the installation team."
