Rustic garden benches bring a touch of class to your garden. Look for a traditional wooden version – and don't forget a cushioned seat for extra comfort. Garden tables and chairs come in a variety of designs. Co-ordinated sets in sleek metal are built to withstand the elements, ready for you to bask in the sun when summer comes. For the smaller garden a bistro set is ideal for just the two of you to enjoy that after dinner coffee.

If you are looking for something larger then rattan garden furniture comes in up to 8-seater cube sets for when you have the family over. For protection from the sun add a garden parasol to your outdoor furniture to keep harmful rays out, and water repellent materials mean they'll keep you dry in the event of a shower. Keep them in place with sturdy bases in granite or cast iron. Gazebos, marquees and awnings will also do the same and are handy for entertaining. Pop-up gazebos are ideal for picnics and are simple to put together. Some come with handy storage bags to keep them clean when they're stowed away. For bigger gatherings, choose a larger marquee with waterproof side panels for added protection against showers. Wall-mounted awnings create quick and easy shade for al fresco dining.
To continue the fun after the sun goes down, chimineas and wood burners are a stylish way to heat your patio.

Relax in the comfort of your own home than with some warm water, jets and bubbles and let the water wash away the tension in your muscles. A soak can also benefit people with arthritis, by reducing pain and stiffness in joints. So, when you get home let the water wash away the stresses and strains which will help you sleep better. Choose a wood panelled version for the ultimate luxury experience. Or go for an inflatable tub that you can stow away when you need a bit more space. Welcome to paradise.
