7 must-buy products for your summer garden

Here are seven must-buy products for your summer garden.


Living in a country like the UK means getting used to a changeable climate where it’s possible to experience four seasons in one day.

That said, there have been a few spectacular summers in recent years. And, after the short days and long nights of winter, it’s no wonder that UK residents want to make the most of pleasant temperatures by gearing up their garden with every item necessary to make it their favourite space for socialising with friends and family.

With that in mind, here are seven must-buy products for your summer garden.

1. Hammock

You’ll feel like the king (or queen) of the swingers when you buy a hammock from a specialist supplier like The Hammock Store.
If you purchase as a set including a sturdy suspension stand, there’s no need to hang it from trees or posts and it’s the ideal way to rock yourself to sleep on a sultry summer’s day.

2. BBQ

Mix warm weather, chargrilled food, cold beer and good company for the perfect summer party. But if you’re the host, you’ll need something more robust than a throwaway BBQ kit to keep guests happy – find gas, electric and hybrid models at B&Q.

3. Turf

Strolling barefoot across your well-manicured lawn is one of the main summer pleasures for many keen gardeners.

But if your lawn isn’t looking its best before a big family gathering, ordering freshly grown grass from a supplier like Turfonline is your best bet.

4. Bird houses

When you love fauna as much as flora, investing in a bird house from the likes of Waitrose is a wonderful way to bring your summer garden to life.

You’ll be able to see birds like tits and sparrows building their nests and perhaps even raising fledglings – magical!

5. Chiminea

Late summer evenings in Britain can get a little breezy, so ordering a chiminea from a website like Wayfair means you and your guests can keep cosy into the wee small hours.

Chimineas are great gathering places too – the ideal areas for a spot of campfire storytelling with children of all ages.

6. Daybed

For the ultimate in garden luxury, splash out on a daybed and corner sofa set from Moda Furnishings.

Finished in a choice of rattan weave colours and complete with comfortable cushions and sun awnings, this instantly gives your green space the elegant ambience of a cool hotel on the Cap d’Antibes.

7. Door mat

With the footfall in and out of your home increased significantly during the summer social season, you’ll have to work harder than ever to protect carpets from mucky flip-flops trailing to the fridge and toilet.

However, purchasing logo mats from Kleen-Tex solves the problem and you can customize them with your family crest or a straightforward reminder to ‘wipe your feet’ before entering your inner sanctum.

That’s our list! Share your own summer garden tips in the comments section.
