On warm summer days, keep yourself and the family protected with a garden parasol. Garden umbrellas help keep you and the family in the shade and come with a variety of sturdy parasol bases in granite or cast iron to make sure they don’t topple over. Or go for a hanging parasol that comes with its own stand. UV garden parasols keep harmful rays out, and water repellent materials mean they'll keep you dry even during a quick downpour.
Get the garden ready for the summer by tidying up and decluttering. Prune the back trees with the branch cutter, weed and mulch the beds and mow the lawn - it will all help make the garden a place everyone will want to spend time in. If you are lucky enough to have a summer or garden house, give them a dust and sweep for your summer guests. Paint the fence trellis and plant some climbing plants or flowers – scented flowers will fill your garden with sweet perfume. Garden pots can be dotted around the garden for pops of colour, and can easily be moved around when you fancy a change. A hosepipe will make it much easier to keep your new plants watered, and the kids will love doing this garden job for you.
With the garden looking great, the garden furniture beckoning, extend the time you can spend in the garden with some solar garden lights. The create a cosy atmosphere and look great too. However, when it starts getting chilly, and the throw or blanket is not enough outdoor heaters come into their element. Patio heaters mean you can stay out longer and outdoor electric heaters are safe to use too. All that is left to do is relax and enjoy the summer.
