The nights are beginning to draw in as winter approaches, but that doesn’t mean we must retreat inside until next spring. From luxury fire pits, to maintenance free garden furniture, here’s our guide to the outdoor products that will help you enjoy your garden all year round.
1. Fire Pits
To take the chill out of the cloudless, starry evenings and transition seamlessly to autumnal entertaining, invest in a chic but functional fire pit. Elementi offers a wide selection including bowls and tables designs to ensure you and your guests remain warm throughout the night.
Adding blankets to your seating area will make the space feel instantly cosy and provide extra warmth during cool evenings. The Great British Blanket Company is a family-run business making sustainable wool products that are sure to keep you and your guests suitably wrapped up.
The focal point of most patios is the dining area. Our garden furniture sets are made from recycled aluminium and are as elegant as they are sustainable. There is a wide range of designs inspired by traditional English garden styles and configurations to choose from, including traditional chair and table sets, loungers, bar stools, and sofas. Plus, because they are made from aluminium, they are entirely waterproof, making for the perfect all year-round, maintenance free garden furniture.
Lighting is key to maximising the amount of time you can spend in your garden, particularly as the sun starts to set in the evening. David Hunt Lighting has a range of heritage-inspired outdoor lighting solutions that will allow you to keep the party going into the night and create a cosy and inviting atmosphere.
5. Wildlife Boxes
There’s nothing more incredible than spotting wildlife in our gardens, and autumn and winter are important seasons for many of the creatures that inhabit our outdoor spaces. Many small mammals, invertebrates, and amphibians sleep through the coldest months whilst some species, like hedgehogs, truly hibernate. Wildlife World offer a range of products to encourage and protect wildlife in British gardens throughout the year, including nesting boxes for birds and hedgehog feeders.
6. Home Bars
Staying in is the new going out and nothing says sophisticated home entertaining like having your very own bespoke outdoor bar. Luxury Home Bars‘ team of expert craftsman can create your dream back garden holiday destination with a range of possibilities including a poolside cocktail bar or subtle orangery wine bar.
Even during winter, the bright daytime sunlight can be dazzling. Sundowner offers a range of shade creating solutions, from pergolas, to sail shades, and awnings. Not only are they great for creating shade but they also protect seating areas from unexpected showers.
8. Alfresco Ovens
Alfresco cooking doesn’t mean just having a BBQ. The Garden Oven Company creates firebrick lined steel ovens that allow you to cook a range of dishes whatever the weather, from pizzas to a full roast dinner.
