Entertain al-fresco with garden table and chair sets. Invite the whole family with corner style lounge sets that seat six to eight people; pick one with water-resistant cushions. Or go for a bistro-style two seater, perfect for a cosy tea. Duck egg seats keep it contemporary, while wicker or rattan effect is a classic look. Many garden tables fold away or have stools that tuck underneath for neat storage.
Pop in a garden bench for a rest when the gardening's done. When the sun comes out, stretch out on sun loungers or hammocks. To relax like a rock star, hot tubs will do the trick, with inflatable or permanent styles featuring hydro-massage jets and Bluetooth sound systems.
If there's one thing everyone rolls out in the summer, it's barbecues. Update yours with a 4- or 6-burner, or go long haul with built-in brick charcoal. Keep the party going into the night with gazebos to retreat under when the sun goes down.
