Having a barbecue in your garden is about more than just cooking. The fun of having everyone around, the informal setting with a backdrop of children playing and family chatting turns creating a meal into a social event. After the party is over give your BBQ a good clean and protect it with a barbeque cover. BBQ covers come in a range of sizes – invest in an extra-large heavy-duty BBQ cover to protect even the largest of barbeques, and it will be ready to use when you are ready for the next party.
Make sure everyone has somewhere to sit. Make the most of your outside space with a range of garden furniture sets. Style up the garden patio with a design that suits your garden. Rattan garden furniture is durable and hard wearing, which is perfect for getting through the British winter time as are wooden garden furniture sets are solid, built to last if cared for. Metal patio furniture is great for smaller patios areas and balconies. Aluminium sets are strong and lightweight, which means they can be moved around and stored away easily, and a bistro set on the balcony is a great place for a quiet breakfast. When the evenings get cooler a wood burner will extend the time you can spend our doors and a stylish way to heat your patio. If a modern look is your thing, try a sleek steel design, or for a traditional feel, a clay version looks great on stone tiles. The cosy atmosphere and warmth a wood burning provides means you can spend much longer in your garden patio. And when the summer is over, sheds are a practical addition to store away your furniture, barbeque, chimeneas and wood burners over the winter months. Our shed buying guide will help you choose your wooden, metal or plastic shed and the size that is right for you and your garden.
With the food and seating taken care off, spend a bit of time to get the garden ready for the party. Our garden decoration and landscaping range will have everything you need to redesign or refresh your garden space and make it somewhere everyone will want to spend time in. A fence trellis will help divide the garden into zones, and trellis fence panels also support clamping plants that turn the panel into a wall of colour. Add splashes of even more colour by dotting about plant pots filled with summer blooms and even fruit and vegetables. Whether you go for classic Terracotta pots or tiered and latticed planters add interest, they can be moved around to change the look whenever you feel like. Raised beds mean you can have a vegetable plot even if short of space and planters with built-in benches that double up as garden furniture, so pour yourself a drink, sit ack and admire your handiwork. Pergolas and pergodas add sophistication and a focal point to your garden and can also have flowers like roses and honeysuckle climbing up the posts. Add some solar garden lights to create your own magical land that changes its mood when the sun goes down.
