Garden furniture


Whatever else your garden means to you, at Fresh we think it should be a place to relax, unwind and enjoy some quality time with family and friends, writes Nicci Gow of Fresh @ Burcot Garden Centre.

It may be a cliché, but your garden really is an extra room in your home, so make the best use of it and give it a makeover as you would for any other room.

Furnish it:
Do you want an outdoor dining room or outdoor relaxation space? Select your garden furniture accordingly or get the best of both worlds with the lovely casual dining sets available from good local garden centres.

These combine the comfort of a sofa with the formality of a dining table, to create the perfect addition to any patio.

Manufactured in woven resin wicker, this type of set is designed to be left outside all year round so you can enjoy being outside the moment the sun shines!

Light it:
These days the variety and quality of solar lights means that lighting your garden and outdoor living areas is easier than ever. No need for outdoor cables and electrical installations. Simply harness the power of the sun!

Decorate it:
Add colour to your garden using plants, pots, garden ornaments, bird baths, garden wall art – whatever takes your fancy.

Don’t restrict your decorative creativity to the interior of your home – and if you need ideas, your local garden centre should be able to help inspire you!

Heat it:
Chimineas and firepits mean that you can enjoy being in the garden even as the sun dips down and the evening begins to chill.

Make the most of every minute and enjoy the warmth and charm of a real fire even when you are outside!

So, what are you waiting for? Say “Hello, summer” with a visit to your local garden centre. Get outside, enjoy it – it’s summertime and the living really is easy!
