How To Make Your Garden Into A Summer Haven

  in  The Garden
After March's hot weather, people are looking forward to the summer and wondering what they can do to make sure they make the most of the sunshine. Many gardens across the UK will have suffered the wrath of a cold winter, leaving plants dead and paving stones damaged. People who have thought ahead will have planted their bulbs in the autumn and their flowers will now be blossoming. However, if you did not think ahead, you can always visit your local garden centre to buy some already potted plants. If your plants are sorted, it is time to start thinking about how you can make your garden a comfortable place to spend warm summer evenings.

Teak furniture is a good investment to make for any garden. Summer weather is unpredictable and if a rain shower suddenly appears, teak wood will not be damaged by the water. An essential piece of garden furniture is a teak bench, providing a place to sit and have a glass of wine. A bench does not take up much space so it is especially useful if you have a small garden as it can be pushed against the wall of the house or against a garage. Taking cushions from the sofa out onto the bench will provide extra comfort if you want to spend a long period of time sat outside.

If you have a lot of space in your garden and want to give it a more tropical feel, teak loungers are good to have. If you have a south facing garden that receives a lot of sun you will benefit from having loungers. It is easy to spend a Saturday afternoon sun bathing and drinking wine when you can properly relax in your own garden. A small garden table between two loungers means you can keep everything you need with you, from a bottle of sun tan cream to your favourite book.

If you want to fully furnish your garden, teak tables and chairs are available. People try to fit in as many barbeques as they can over the summer and teak dining furniture will provide you with a comfortable place so sit and eat.

Whether you have a small garden and are just looking for one or two small items of furniture such as benches and coffee tables, or if you have a huge garden and want to hold garden parties, teak furniture is ideal for everyone as it does not have to be moved inside during the winter and it provides a comfortable place to enjoy your summer.
