We’re very near to completing on the purchase of our new house and we’re so excited to finally get the keys after waiting all these months! One of the things that we’re most looking forward to is having our own garden, as at the moment in the flat we have no outside space at all.
We can’t wait to be able to use our new sun loungers in our very own (south facing!) garden. TJ Hughes recently sent me their Valencia duo set which includes two comfy relaxer chairs with built-in head rests and a handy small table with two integrated cup holders. I’ve been testing the chairs out in my parents garden in the meantime, and the loungers can be adjusted from an upright chair to a relaxing sunlounger easily. The frame is made from sturdy metal whilst the seat is made from an easy-to-clean, breathable fabric.
Doing up our new garden will be quite a big job as the whole house is a bit of a project. There’s currently no lawn – just some pebbles and concrete with an old shed on top! We want to make the garden a really nice peaceful area where we can relax and enjoy the sunshine. I’m hoping it will be all sorted in time for next summer so we can invite some friends around for BBQ’s!
There are some quick ways to make the most of your outdoor space without too much effort. By adding a nice garden furniture set and a couple of extra accessories you can really add some atmosphere and style to your garden. I was also sent these cute retro style festoon string lights which are weatherproof and solar powered so are easy to use as you can just hang them up and then leave them!
They work really well too – the sun charges up the battery and then when the sun goes down the lights turn on and last all night long. They’re really effective and bright lights considering they’re solar powered and we don’t get much sun in the UK! Plus you can choose whether to have the lights flashing or static! At only £6.99 I plan on buying a couple more sets of these to use to light up a pathway in the garden. Although they look equally cute hung up along a fence and would look great at garden party or BBQ. These white wire hanging baskets are also a great and easy way to add some style to the garden and can simply be added to fence posts and filled with pretty flowers to add a bit of colour!
