Spring has sprung, and it’s time to start planning for those garden gatherings.  Fresh air and greenery are vital for our sense of wellbeing, and after a year of spending most of our time indoors, we know you’re ready for some ideas that can help to turn your gardens into perfect getaway destinations.

Houzz’s lockdown survey in 2020 revealed that 30% of respondents believed that upgrading their outdoor space would make their time at home more enjoyable. As lockdown eases, restrictions lift and home improvements are on the rise, investing time in building an outdoor sanctuary that’s a perfect fit for you, your family, and your guests will be a given. Take a look at our guide below to get ahead of the trend and create a welcoming space that works for you.

Social Spaces

It’s time to freshen up and prep your garden oasis for your guests. Choosing some staple furniture can help to transform your outdoor space into a luxe destination for everyone to enjoy.

Pre-dinner relaxation

Experimenting and creating different spots to entertain within your garden can elevate the overall experience. Choose furniture to help your guests relax and unwind before you begin the full on “hosting”. While you are busy in the kitchen, prepping hor d’oeuvres, why not direct your guests to the swings and offer them a pre-dinner cocktail?

Summer Evenings

Outdoor fireplaces have long brought the heat and light needed to make a deck or patio a warm, inviting place for family and friends to gather. It’s a perfect way to end your garden gathering. It will keep your evening garden-getaways enjoyable throughout the whole year, not just for the English summer evenings.

For a quick and stylish way to keep cool in your garden, Shade Sails are a great way to allow you to make the most out of your patio, and of course, protect you from the sun (and rain, after all we are in the UK) The shade will help you focus on dedicating yourself to your yoga flow or lift of weights without getting too hot or flustered, providing a practical solution yet still keeping your garden looking premium.
