British summertime is definitely upon us thanks to the last couple of weeks where the sun has graced us with its presence. When the sun shines people like to get outside and make the most of it (probably because we don't know when the big ball of gas in the sky is going to shine next). If you're looking to try and make the most of your outdoor space, no matter how big or small, then we've got some great products to help you on your way.
Adding greenery and blooms
Adding some greenery and blooms to your outdoor space doesn't have to be a chore. I know that gardening isn't for everyone, but there's something nice about looking out at a little oasis that you've created. Our raised planters are a great choice for adding height to your garden, as well as saving your knees and back! We've also got wall-mounted options for those who don't want to take up precious floor space such as our zinc wall planter, floating plant hangers and balcony flower pots. We've also got a range of accessories to help make gardening easier. Some of these include our ingenious "big hands" which make scooping up grass cuttings and leaves a breeze, our copper plant tag and stamper set and our wooden flower trugs.
Where to sit?
Now that you've got your garden blooming, you want to have an area where you can sit down and admire it. We've got a great range of furniture that's suitable for outdoor use in a variety of styles and sizes so there's sure to be an option to suit everyone. Our range includes compact bistro sets to seat 2, right the way through to complete sets to seat 10. We've also got a high bar set and a balcony table which are ideal for use in smaller areas. And if your looking for some outdoor seating that's a little different from the norm, then look no further than our outdoor beanbags, floor cushions, hammock etc from our friends at Extreme Lounging.
Wildlife in the garden
I know that a lot of people enjoy watching the wildlife that shares their outdoor space with them, (whether that be birds, hedgehogs, butterflies etc) and we're pleased to be able to offer a wide range of products to help with this. For bird lovers, we've got bird feeders, bird houses and even a bird nesting bag. For the hedgehog people, we've got hedgehog houses and even a hedgehog gate which has been designed to allow our spiky little friends the ability to roam free between gardens and wilder areas. We've also got a few options for those who want to offer a place to stay for the butterflies and bees.
There are so many other products that we stock that can really make your garden that I haven't mentioned, I'll save those for another day. For now, go and enjoy some sunshine!
