Get Your Garden Bank Holiday Ready

Get Your Garden Bank Holiday Ready

It’s that time of year again, the weather is brighter, and we’re craving some time outdoors to soak up the spring sunshine and surround ourselves in nature. With a flourish of spring blooms sprouting and blossom on trees it’s the perfect time to enjoy the garden. With the bank holiday ahead there’s no better time than now to tend to your garden.

Freshen Up the Space

Get started by clearing your garden, get rid of any old broken furniture, clear the debris, and have a general tidy up. Jet wash the decking or patio area if you have one, cut the grass and pull out dead plants and weeds. Just like our homes, our gardens may need a declutter from time to time. Once your outside space is clear, you will have a blank canvas to plan how to position your garden furniture.

Alfresco Entertaining

Set the scene for friends and family with a gorgeous space for entertaining in the garden. Consider the space, do you have room for a large garden dining table, or do you want different seating options? Our stylish Aston range offers a generous corner style sofa with matching dining table and footstools that seat up to nine guests. Finished in weatherproof woven rattan with comfy cushions the Aston set is ideal for garden entertaining.

Alternatively, if you have a smaller space outside but you still enjoy hosting friends and family then opt for one of our more compact dining sets. Our rattan cube style garden furniture is available in various sizes with options to have parasols and rain covers. The beauty of our Laura James cube designs is that all the included seating can be tucked neatly underneath the table for storage when not in use.

Outdoor Living

Think of your garden as an additional room, so why not make it as inviting as possible. A stylish garden sofa is a great place to start when creating an outside living area. At Laura James we have an elegant range of wooden sofa styles including the Rowan, crafted in beautiful acacia wood. The Rowan corner sofa style comes in various sizes with a beautifully matching coffee table. It comes with plump sofa cushions in a contemporary shade of either natural or grey, making them not only comfy and perfect for lounging, but aesthetically pleasing too.

Finishing Touches

Once you’ve created your outdoor living and dining space, you can add a few accessories to help bring the look together, creating a homely feel. Introducing items like garden rugs, cushions and throws adds colour, texture and interest to the space, just like it would in your living room inside your home.

Use a garden rug to zone your area, for example with the sofa or under the table, our range of rugs feature geometric prints and revisable styles. You can introduce your style personality in many ways to your garden space, including scented citronella candles, lanterns and even garden mirrors.
