How to Get Your Garden Summer Ready

It’s that time of the year, we see the sun shining and we can even think about venturing outside to soak up the sun’s warm ways. This is also the time of year that most of us think about rejuvenating our gardens for a long warm summer ahead of us.

Whatever plans you have this summer, we have a great range of products that will allow you to add style to your space. Here are our top tips:

Outdoor entertaining

A summer garden is the perfect social space for family and friends, eating in the garden and enjoying garden parties. Simple steps for summer include Investing in good quality garden furniture to ensure you will reap the benefits year after year and enhance your outdoor space.

Our luxurious furniture sets come in a neutral colour palette using cream and grey, offering both sophistication and elegance. Turn your outdoor room into a modern get-together living space with our Richmond Furniture Collection. The Richmond 4 Seater Garden Furniture Set with Cushions is practical, comfortable, stylish and perfect for large families or outdoor entertaining with friends. For the ultimate comfort, the set doubles up as a garden day bed for a lazy day sunbathing.

Whether your garden is large or small, some simple styling with our Lyndhurst Collection will transform it into the perfect setting for an outdoor soiree. The Lyndhurst Outdoor Rattan Corner Sofa Set With Cushions & Coffee Table is a must for the summer months, gathering your guests together and turning your garden into a sophisticated, socialising space.

Creating a relaxation zone in your garden can help to take your garden to the next level this summer. Our Paxton Rattan Double Hanging Egg Chair or our Sherwood Rattan Double Cocoon Chair creates a seating space where you can soak up the summer sunshine in style.

Al-fresco cooking

Dust off your barbeque and make sure you have enough space to put your crockery and condiments in close reach to the dining table. We love our Repton Garden Serving Tray which is a must have for the outdoor chef.

There’s nothing better than having a BBQ with the friends and family in your life over the summer period and your garden provides the perfect backdrop. Prepare tasty, chargrilled treats on our Portable Kamado Ceramic Grill Barbecue which is the perfect size for any patio or deck. Offering the ultimate in versatility, you can use this charcoal grill for grilling, searing, baking and smoking by adding wood chips to the charcoal for a taste sensation.

No matter what the summer weather throws at us, why not try a homemade pizza as alfresco food or for your friends and family? Our Outdoor Pizza Oven will bring a little piece of the Mediterranean right to your doorstep. It heats up for around 15 minutes and you’re ready to start cooking - perfect for an impromptu gathering.

Keeping cosy

Summer is the perfect time to have evening get-togethers but it is also a good idea to have some heating options as the UK weather can be unpredictable.

Our extensive range of premium fire pits will warm up those cool evenings when the sun starts to set. Not only do they add a focal point for guests to gather around, they give your garden an instant lift too.

Our Grey Concrete Gas Fire Pits are a showstopping piece that's both minimalist and stylish in design. Or imagine sitting beside a roaring fire laughing with friends and family on a cool starry night with our Wakehurst Outdoor Fireplace with Wood Storage.

Outdoor heaters are popular options and our Luna Outdoor Electrical Steel Heater is perfect to take the chill off on summer evenings. With its small footprint, it instantly creates a warming atmosphere, without taking up much space. An electric heater is lightweight, environmentally friendly and often with an adjustable heating angle and height, extending the use you get out of your outdoor space beyond summer.

With all these summer must-haves in your garden you are set for the perfect evenings with friends and family dining and drinking in your outdoor space!
