Here, we have revealed our top 5 makeover ideas which will improve the look and practicality of your garden.

"Spring can go from one extreme to the other, from snow to blistering heat in the space of a couple of hours at times!"

A Firepit

Spring can still be quite chilly at times so instead of shutting your garden back up and staring at it longingly from behind closed doors, keep it in use with a fire pit. Our range of gas fire pit systems are perfect for use all year round. The gas means you don’t come indoors smelling of smoke and you don’t have to ensure you have dry kindling to burn, which means you can use it whenever you choose.

These fire pits are perfect for keeping warm as the evening draws in and are also a stylish addition to any garden space becoming a focal point and a place to chat and share memories.


A Parasol

We all know that spring can go from one extreme to the other, from snow to blistering heat in the space of a couple of hours at times! So, make sure you have the right protection for your garden by choosing a suitable parasol. Whether you need a parasol to go through the centre of your dining table or a parasol to hang over your outdoor sofa space, there is something for everyone.

When choosing a parasol make sure it offers suitable UV protection and also look for those that can tilt or be adjusted to multiple angles as this means you can adjust it in relation to where the sun is in the sky, offering the most protection.

A great choice for a spring parasol is one with built-in LEDs. This is because the evenings can still draw in quite quickly throughout spring and the added light will mean that you can spend more time outdoors.

A Sofa Set

Throughout the spring it may not get warm enough to have barbecues and full alfresco dining experiences, but you may catch a few hours of sunshine and want to at least relax outdoors which is why a sofa set is the ideal solution.

Without the formality of sitting around a table, you can still spend time outdoors with loved ones and often a coffee table is plenty of space to keep your snacks and drinks for the time you will be spending outdoors.


Garden Furniture Covers

Whilst you’re likely to be able to spend some time outdoors in spring, rain and bad weather can still occur regularly. So instead of having to wipe down and clean your garden furniture every time you can spend time outdoors, invest in a garden furniture cover that will go over the furniture to keep it clean and protected from harsh weather like rain and frost.

A Storage Box

If you’re looking at your garden for the first time since last summer and can see that there are kids toys laying around getting ruined from the harsh winter weather or you are struggling to find somewhere safe to keep your garden furniture cushions then we recommend a storage box.

A storage box will hold all of your garden items and keep your garden looking tidy and free from clutter as well as protect the items inside from showers and other bad weather conditions.

If you need help or advice when it comes to giving your garden furniture a makeover we recommend visiting one of our garden furniture showrooms where our friendly sales advisors can offer a helping hand and you will be able to test the furniture in person.
