Making the most of your Garden

27 April 2018

No matter the size of your Garden, with careful planning it can be utilised as another room of your home. When planning your outside space, using ‘zoning’ will help provide versatility and interest, whilst also ensuring that your space meets all your needs. Below we list our tips on how to create zones to entertain, dine, sit back and read and relax. 

A space to entertain

Combine an Outdoor Sofa Set such as our exquisite West Strand Corner Sofa Set, our Classic Parasol and our practical and stylish Drinks Trolley to create a space that is sure to create a luxurious setting to captivate you and guests.

Dine in luxury

Dine outdoors in style this Summer. Whether you have a large or small garden to fill we offer an array of styles and sizes to suit them all. Our larger dining sets are ideal for large family gatherings and parties.

If your space is on the smaller side, a nice touch is to introduce table and chairs that fulfill a different purpose such as our bistro collection. Inspired by Parisian dining culture, our bistro sets add instant elegance to your dining space. Perfect for enjoying the sunshine on balconies, patios and courtyard gardens to enjoy morning brunches or socialising with friends.

Invest in a table that works with for your space and your lifestyle.

Read and relax in style

Afternoons in the garden can be spent relaxing in style with our unique Hanging Nest Chair. Crafted from 100% recycled All-weather Rattan, the woven seat is fully weatherproof, UV and mould resistant ensuring it can be used for years to come. The chair is the perfect choice for gardens of all sizes and will be a sure hit with guests. The oval shaping allows you to cocoon yourself on a summers day whilst enjoying a good book or refreshing beverage. Included are two plump cushions ready for you to sink in and relax. 

A good alternative is our Hampstead Bench providing a sophisticated design with a deep seat to relax and enjoy the weather. 

Grow with time

Garden zoning isn’t all about layout and the larger sets of furniture. Think about scene setting and accessories, and how they may offer character and tone to a specific area.

Illuminate your garden with our range of stylish and weatherproof outdoor lighting. If your outdoor space has a feature, lighting can be a great way to celebrate this. A simple but effective way of achieving an effect to highlight a feature. 

Safely store and protect your garden accessories, tools and such with our collection of weatherproof storage for every space. We have stylish storage options to make the most of compact spaces too.
