You would be forgiven for thinking that once the glorious days of Summer, or September heatwaves, are over that your outdoor space will become uninviting and unusable until the Spring. Here are some tips to enjoy your garden in the cooler months..

💡 A few strings of solar-powered fairy lights can turn a dark and unwelcoming garden into an inviting and cheerful one.

🏡 Use your summer house as a winter house. Add a few blankets to make it nice and cosy to transform into a snug and welcoming space.

🛋️ Create a cosy seating area, invest in some weather-resistant outdoor furniture and cushions. Arrange them strategically to create a cosy seating area where you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while soaking in the fresh, crisp air.

🔥 A well-placed fire pit, chiminea or eve patio heaters can provide enough warmth to take the edge off of the chill in the evenings. Take inspiration from Winter wonderlands and add a warm coat, a few blankets and some hot chocolate to keep enjoying your garden throughout the year.

🪴 Plant some winter-friendly greenery. Consider planting evergreen shrubs and plants that thrive in colder temperatures. These can add a splash of colour and vibrancy to your garden, even during the winter months.

💨 Add windbreakers, install windbreakers or screens to shield your seating area from the chilly breeze. This not only keeps the area more comfortable but also protects delicate plants from harsh winter gusts.

🎃 Embrace the festive spirit by decorating your garden for holidays like Halloween, Christmas and New Year's. String lights, ornaments, and wreaths can add a touch of magic to your outdoor space.
