Stay warm with a fire pit

Although sunny and warm during the day, summer nights are often on the cooler side, so no matter the size of your garden, the addition of an outdoor heating solution like a fire pit makes all the difference. Whether you have a compact urban balcony or a spacious garden in the countryside, our Terrace and Delta Fire Pits come in a range of sizes and are all easy to assemble in a few simple steps. Designed to be enjoyed all year round, simply stock up on wood, take a seat and enjoy.

Consider the right flooring

When designing an outdoor entertaining space, adding the right flooring will help to create specific zones in the garden. From an area for a table and chairs to a simple bistro corner surrounded by plants, add texture and interest with outdoor paving. With more homeowners looking to create a seamless flow between the indoors and outdoors, why not add natural stone-effect tiles to transform and elevate your garden.

Let there be light

From outdoor wall lighting and string lights to the soft glow of an outdoor firepit, just as you would illuminate your home with layered lighting, it's just as important when designing your garden. Once the garden has been zoned, it will be easier to decide how much lighting you need in each area. Around a table for example, pair task lighting such as wall lights with soft lighting like lanterns. For a cost seating area, not only do fire pits provide enough heat to keep you warm, but the crackling flames create an eye-catching display of light.
