If we’ve learnt anything at all from the last year, it’s the value of having a piece of outdoor space you can call your own.
So, with the promise of warmer weather ahead, we’ve taken a quick look at just some of the ways you can spruce up your outdoor space and get your garden summer-ready.
Festoon Lights These are the big bulbs with plenty of style to brighten up your garden in the evening after the sun sets. They come in a choice of clear, frosted or multi-coloured bulbs and you can drape them around a tree or hang them along your fence for an atmospheric look after dark.
Outdoor Rug Whether you have a patio or decking, an outdoor rug can be a great way to cosy up your outdoor space. Made with highly durable material that’s easy to care for, these rugs are designed to be outdoors and withstand all weathers. The only question is, what pattern to go for – something contemporary or something classic?
Scented Candle If your garden flowers are not providing as much fragrance as you might like, then a scented candle is the perfect alternative. There are all sorts of relaxing scents to choose from, not to mention stylish candle holders to house them in. You can even opt for a citronella candle to keep the mosquitoes away, leaving you to enjoy your garden in peace.
Firepit Create a warm and cosy atmosphere in your garden on cooler summer nights with a firepit. They provide an attractive feature during the day and wonderful outdoor heating for everyone to huddle around in the evening long after the BBQ has ended.
Whether it’s the adults or the little ones that start the games first, a get together with family or friends can be a lot of fun if you have a few garden games you can bring into the mix. Just remember to also buy an attractive storage box to tidy them away out of sight afterwards.
