As you are all well to aware the weather in the UK is extremely hit and miss and when we do get the odd spell of sunshine we all need to make to most of it.
One way to do this is to make the garden an extension of your home and get as much use out of it as you can.
We are always trying to bring the outside in by filling the house with pot plants and floral fabrics so why shouldn’t we switch things around and take the comforts of our home into the garden.
For me being in the outdoors is the perfect way to spend time as a family.
The poor wifi connection and lack of TV and computer screens allows us to enjoy quality time together whist enjoying the sunshine.
The great outdoors also offers so many benefits such as helping to improve concentration, relives stress, improves vision, boosts your immune system and many more things why would you not want to make the most of your time out there.
The added bonus now is there are so many great products on the market to make your garden an inviting and comfortable place to be.
Gone are the days of flimsy plastic tables and chairs that always have the tendency to buckle under to much weight.
These have been replaced with cosy ratan sofas and sturdy tables and chairs made from all kinds of different materials that replicate indoor furniture perfectly.
To this you can add plenty of throws and cushions to make for an even comfier experience and creating a welcoming splash of colour.
Something that makes me want to make the most of my time outside is the addition of mood lighting in the form of candles and solar power lighting.
A few candles lit on the table can keep the bugs at bay is you find some citronella candles and solar power bulbs placed in the tress and shrubbery allow you to stay out well after the sun goes down.
The garden really can be a feast for all your senses from the smell of fragrant flowers to the sound of the early morning bird call.
It’s a place to relax and unwind so why not make your garden a little haven to enjoy as a family.
