When you think of garden furniture, does your mind automatically place it on a luscious green lawn with shrubs and a patio or decking? If this is your reality, you may be shocked to know that not everyone has access to a garden.

According to a recent survey by UK Census, one in eight UK households do not have access to a garden. 
If you fall into this 12% category, this blog is for you. Whether you have a rooftop space or a private balcony, we’ve collated our collection of must-haves to transform your concrete places into creative spaces.

Bistro Dining Sets

Garden furniture Bistro sets are ideal for those with limited space, transforming corners into cosy nooks. These charming dining sets provide you with a place to sit back and relax in comfort and style. Why not create an inviting spot for intimate conversations, solo reflection, or even a reading retreat? 

Don’t underestimate their size. They may be compact, but they sure are comfortable. Plus, their size makes them very easy to move around, allowing you to chase the sun or shade as you please.

Our Bistro sets come in a range of colours and styles, from classic to contemporary. Garden furniture needs to withstand unpredictable elements, and bistro sets are no exception! These sets come in a variety of materials, from the cast aluminium of the Cotswold set to the rattan weave of the Leeanna set. Each material brings its unique charm to your garden while ensuring longevity and minimal maintenance.

We still always recommend covering your garden furniture when it’s not in constant use to prolong its life. You can get your Bistro cover set here.

Flowers and Aluminium planters

Bring some colour into your balcony or rooftop with the use of flowers and our Aluminium Planters. Far too often these outdoor spaces lack character and colour. Let’s turn that dreary space into a blooming oasis that sparks joy. 

Flower power is real. They infuse life, colour and fragrance to any space no matter how big or small. From cheerful daisies to elegant roses, the possibilities are endless. When planning your floral paradise, make sure you’re mixing perennial and seasonal flowers to ensure you have a continuous display of blooms throughout the year.

Now that you've chosen your floral companions, it's time to pick the perfect homes for them - aluminium planters! These planters are not only sleek and stylish but also incredibly durable, making them an ideal choice for rooftop and balcony gardens. The lightweight nature of aluminium allows for easy rearrangement, so you can experiment with different layouts to find the perfect arrangement.
Choose from a selection of shapes, heights and colours. Opt for tall, slender planters to frame the edges of your rooftop, while low and wide planters can be perfect for a balcony railing. Combining different planter styles adds interest and depth to your outdoor space. Remember, have fun with it!

Water Features

In a fast-paced life, finding tranquillity and solace becomes a treasure. But what if we told you that you could create your own oasis of serenity right on your rooftop or balcony?

Water features have the remarkable ability to transform compact outdoor spaces into havens of peace and relaxation. Hitting three out of five senses, they are very popular amongst those designing their outdoor spaces. 

There's something undeniably enchanting about the sound of trickling water or the shimmering reflection it casts. Water features, no matter how small, add a touch of Zen to any environment. Imagine unwinding after a long day, listening to the soothing melody of flowing water - pure bliss! 

You might be thinking, "My rooftop or balcony is tiny - how can I fit a water feature?" Fear not! With the right selection, there's a water feature for every space. Compact and versatile options, such as the thin, modern design of Elisso, and the rocky Woolbrook mean no space is compromised. 

Maintaining a water feature in a small space is surprisingly simple. Regularly check the water level, clean the feature, and ensure the pump is in good condition. With minimal upkeep, you can enjoy the benefits of your water feature all year round.

Outdoor Heaters

Now you’ve created a comfortable, colourful and calm oasis, you’re going to want to spend as much time out there as possible. The cooler summer nights should not change that for you. That’s where an Outdoor Patio Heater comes in handy. These wonderful devices bring warmth and cosiness to your tiny sanctuaries, allowing you to relish the beauty of the outdoors without feeling the chill.

These heaters are compact and designed to fit seamlessly into small areas without causing any inconvenience. You don't have to worry about sacrificing space for comfort; instead, your patio heater becomes a functional and stylish addition to your setup.

Outdoor patio heaters come in various types, such as freestanding, wall-mounted, and tabletop options. For balconies, tabletop heaters are an excellent choice as they don't take up any floor space.

Beyond their practicality, outdoor patio heaters can also enhance the aesthetics of your small outdoor space. With sleek and modern designs, these heaters add a touch of elegance to your balcony, making it a stylish extension of your living area.
