Get the most out of summer evenings by installing an on-trend fire pit on your patio.
Available in a range of shapes, sizes and price points, the cheapest fire pits start at around £30 and you can get foldable fire pits to stow in the shed between uses.
There are decorative globes that give off dancing shadows or bowl-shaped ones equipped with cooking grates for rustling up flame grilled steaks while you listen to the crackle of the flames.
Not only is this atmospheric, it’s a great way to get warmth and light into your garden at the same time.
Lighting up new or existing features can really set them off and will keep your garden giving well beyond sunset.
Lighting from below with professionally-installed spotlights offers a dramatic focal point while twining solar-powered string lights around ornaments creates interesting patterns of light and shade.
