Spring Break – or the Easter Holiday – is the most popular time for buying garden furniture, and this year the choices are modern, vibrant and exciting. Whatever the size of your home, the garden becomes a sanctuary when the sun is out.

This year’s statement ‘must-haves’ are loungers, outdoor lighting, outdoor throws and rugs, which are a simple and affordable way to transform your outdoor space in an instant.

Social events in the garden

Social gatherings will go on into the night if you have good outdoor lighting. The Garden Stake collection is a low-cost investment that’s easily installed, while the LED bulbs will work all year with no fuss or hassle. The Searchlight range has a style for every type of garden, from the minimalist silver LED lamp-post, to the traditional Pompeii brown stone wall lights with characterful leaded-light style glass windows.

In commercial settings, good outdoor lighting is a health and safety legal requirement, but that’s no reason for it to be dull or boring. Even the PIR lights – wall-mounted and post style – are stylish and ornamental, which is a great for customers.

Garden Loungers with style

Turn your urban garden into a great place to sit and relax with a modern lounger.

Traditional sunbeds have been replaced with luxury outdoor seating that has as much architectural style as your indoor sofa. Throw open the patio doors and use the garden as an extension to your living room, by reflecting or replicating the interior design with the shape and colour of your garden lounger, chairs and tables.

In the past, garden seating used to be limited to a choice of brown shades, but now you can recline on the outdoor seat of your choice, such as our purple circular outdoor rocking chair, or a Carnaby faux rattan, egg shaped chair in lime green or stately grey.  Another bonus is that these are also foldable, so you can keep spare chairs safely tucked away in the garage or shed for when visitors arrive.

Accessorise your Garden

This year, it’s the garden accessories that are setting the trend. Get a garden throw with a geometric pattern or a vibrant splash of colour that will turn the boring brown decking into a fashionable outdoor room. It’s a low-cost addition to any size of garden that just can’t fail. No matter how green your fingers, or how many flowering shrubs you have, it’s so easy to add colour to the patio area with a garden throw.

BBQ Heaven

When did you last replace your family BBQ? It could be time to invest in one of the new Napoleon range space-age BBQs which will instantly extend the recipes that are possible to cook in the garden. Braze, broil, roast, grill, stir-fry, pan-fry, and griddle… Don’t settle for anything less until you have tried out one of these essential summer purchases. No more flicking lighters and smelly fire lighter fluid, these beauties start on the gentle push of a button!
