Make your Garden your Getaway this Summer

With a few warmer weekends behind us, you may finally have been able to invest some time into your garden, and start getting set up to enjoy the longer summer evenings. After cutting the grass, digging out those overgrown weeds, and clearing anything that didn’t survive the winter, you can take a step back to admire your hard work. But you may be looking at the result of your labours and thinking, “So, what’s next?”

What do you want from your garden this year? It’s time to talk ideas.

“I’d love to be able to have my friends over for a BBQ”

If you can’t wait to have all your friends round for a barbecue (and maybe a few drinks?), why not consider installing a sunken fire pit and combine with comfy outdoor furniture, to really make a night of it. With many Britons embracing the Mediterranean lifestyle, this perfect pair are ideal for generating heat and light, and a great way to add ambience to your alfresco evening.

If you’re not the entertaining type and your garden is your sanctuary, have you considered adding to the tranquillity by installing a water feature? More popular than ever (even without Charlie Dimmock installing one on BBC Prime Time every week!), there’s a water feature for every landscape and budget. By adding texture with natural stone and absorbing the calming effects of a stunning water feature, you can feel at one with nature in the serenity of your own back garden.

Perhaps you’re not the outdoors type at all and when you look at your garden you see the opportunity for more inside space. Maybe you run a business from your home? Or you’d like to reclaim your study and have the extra bedroom back? How about moving your office outdoors? Maximising the value of your home by increasing ‘indoor’ square footage, and mirroring the functionality of indoor spaces, garden rooms are the latest must have living extension.
