Fairy lights

For only £9.99, Lidl’s Melinera LED Fairy Lights create the ideal relaxing atmosphere in your garden and will make your space perfect for al fresco dining this summer.

The pretty lanterns come in white or multi-coloured versions.

Hammock

Argos’ Home Metal Hammock is the perfect addition to lazy summer evenings in your garden.

Made with soft fabric for your utmost comfort, as well as a super-sturdy steel frame which allows it to be kept outdoors, this £60 hammock will bring added style to any garden.

The cloth can be removed for washing, and allows you to keep it safe in the winter months, while the frame can be easily disassembled in minutes.

Swing seat

If you are sun-shy, and burn quicker than a broken toaster, then perhaps an open hammock isn't the best choice for you. However, online gardening shop Wayfair has the solution.

Its Swing seat is the ideal for those who want to rock back and forth in bliss, while protected from the summer rays.

Large enough for three people to get comfortable, it offers a soft padded seat, along with the very handy tilting sunshade.

Fire pit

Aldi’s fire pit is a favourite summer buy among shoppers, and it made a return to shelves last month after proving popular the previous year.

Part of the reason for its popularity is the price. The much-loved fire pit only costs £49.99.

It comes in dark grey and features a geometric design as well as a cooking grate, which lets it double up as a barbecue.

Bird Bath

While mother nature is enjoying a holiday from pollution, busy streets and noise, as the country remains under lockdown, many people have noticed more birds appearing in the clear skies above.

So why not make the most of this time, and see more bird life up close in your very own garden with a bird bath?

Dunelm is currently selling an elegant bronze bird bath for only £10.

Water feature

What is more relaxing than the sound of flowing water?

Wayfair has made several customers happy with it's easy to install Gahn Fiberglass Fountain with Light.

The water feature has been designed to look identical to natural rock, and with use of its built in white LED lights that can illuminate the feature, it can be enjoyed come day or night.

The feature is currently on sale for the price of £107.99 from £129.99, and has received five star reviews.
