Now that the sun is shining it seems that everyone is heading outside and no matter what sized garden – whether it’s a tiny terrace, decking or a huge lawn, when the sun’s out it will be crammed with people enjoying the sunshine and maybe a burger or two on the barbeque!
It’s always good to have something to sit on though , especially if you’re having guests, so if you are planning a summer barbeque, party or family gathering then there is some garden furniture out there for you, no matter what size your garden.
If you’re stuck with a small garden then it can still be worth investing in some garden furniture, as you still need something to sit on. There are plenty of bistro style sets, like this Chepstow one, which have a small table and two chairs – perfect for coffee and a chat with a friend. If you need something that takes up a little less space then you could opt for a duo seat, such as this Antigua one, which would be great for sitting alongside a wall, and also gives you some table space.
A double glider (which is like a tall backed bench) is also a good option for those who want to space save and this Manilla one also has a rocking motion, so it’s perfect for lazy sunny evenings in the garden.
Those with enough space in your gardens can opt for a more traditional table and chair set, which usually come with four chairs and upwards – so those of you who are planning a bigger gathering, or have a larger family should be able to get sets with extra chairs to accommodate the extra bodies! Like this six seat Seattle set, many come with a parasol to keep you in the shade when the sun is at its hottest.
If you’re planning on doing some sunbathing this summer and have room to spare then sun loungers can also be a fantastic option, as you can adjust them to sit up and read or stretch out and catch some rays.
So, no matter what size your garden make sure that you have somewhere to relax, sit down and enjoy the sunshine!
