British summertime is finally here and while we might be dreaming of beaches abroad, for many of us, good old Blighty is the best it’s going to get.
Make the most by enjoying the time with family and friends outside in the summer sun by creating a haven in your own back garden. Here are five top ways to spruce up your garden for a sensational holiday at home.
1: Cater for all tastes
The all-inclusive buffet might be off the cards this year but you can appease picky eaters and dine out on a different cuisine each night with the BillyOh Outdoor Pizza Oven, Chimney Smoker & Charcoal Barbecue, £239. Ideal for cooking a wide range of meals, this hybrid piece of kit offers a 3-in-1 approach allowing you to use it as a smoker, a BBQ grill, or a pizza oven.
2: Create a cosy evening
When the sun starts to go down, retreat to a cosy corner of the garden and warm yourself up by a firepit. The BillyOh Capri Rattan Garden Corner Sofa Set with Firepit Table, £2,249, corner sofa allows you to make the most of the space in your garden, with additional benches for extra guests and a gas fire pit fitted in the table so you can sit our into the wee hours.
3: Provide space for the kids
You might not be able to ship the kids off to the kids’ club but you can keep them entertained by creating a dedicated space for them in the garden to play, while you relax and soak up some rays. The BillyOh Bunny Max Tower, £595, is the perfect outdoor activity space for a smaller garden and comes with an optional slide to provide fun for hours.
4: Tidy away clutter
If you’re going to be spending more time in the garden with friends and family, you’ll want to make sure it’s free from clutter. Use wooden storage, such as the Mini Master Apex Bike Store, £369, to keep objects like bicycles and gardening equipment out of sight when guests arrive.
5: Create and indoor/outdoor retreat
We can’t always rely on the British weather – one minute the sun is shining, the next the heavens up. Keep dry from the showers while still enjoying your garden space by creating an inside/outside retreat. The BillyOh Fraya Pent Log Cabin, £,2759, has a slight front overhang so you can fling the double glass doors open and breathe in the summer air rain or shine.
