As the weather starts to warm up, more and more guests will be looking to spend time in the garden soaking up the sun. Make sure you’re ready for peak summer season with our top ways to maximise your outdoor space.


1. Provide Garden Furniture

No matter how large or small your garden is, outdoor furniture is a must. Whether it’s a large table and chair set or just a 2-seater bench, guests will appreciate the chance to sit outside and enjoy some fresh air with their morning cuppa or a glass of wine.


2. Plant Some Flowers

Liven up your garden space with some colourful flowers and shrubs. Whether it be some plant pots on the patio, a couple of hanging baskets or a border full of plants, not only will it look lovely but it’ll attract a whole host of bees & butterflies too.


3. Install Outside Lighting

A quick and easy way to add some atmosphere to your garden after dark is the addition of some outdoor lights. A string of fairy lights along the fence could add a magical touch, and solar powered lamps are great for lighting up pathways or lawns. Don’t forget a motion sensor light outside the door too, to help guests get in and out the house safely in the dark.


4. Supply a BBQ Set

On hot summer days many guests will love the option to chill out in the garden with a BBQ! Don’t forget to supply some cooking utensils too, and you could even provide an initial supply of BBQ coal so your guests can start cooking right away.


5. Invest in a Hot Tub

If you’ve got a bit of extra garden space why not consider the addition of a hot tub? Your guests are sure to enjoy this little slice of luxury during their stay! If you’re not sure where to begin with hot tubs, chat to one of our staff members who can advise on the best local suppliers.
