4 ways to upgrade your garden this summer


Julie Paul, Head of Interior Design at luxury furniture brand OKAdirect.com, offers some ideas on how to upgrade your garden this summer...

Invest in a gazebo
A garden centrepiece such as a gazebo is a great idea. Easy to install and low maintenance, gazebos come in all shapes and sizes and can inspire you to get outdoors and spend more time in your garden. Use them for outdoor dining, space to meditate, a hot tub, fire pit, and more.

Lighten up your space
Embrace the warmer evenings with some stylish lighting - the perfect way to get the most out of your garden. Relax into the night after an al fresco dinner or barbecue with some outdoor lighting providing a warm, inviting glow.

Storage, storage, storage
If you have a small space, make the most of it by storing away anything you don’t use regularly. A storage trunk is perfect for storing cushions and other accessories, as well as serving as a handy surface for drinks and plates.

Make yourself comfortable
It’s worth investing in some outdoor furniture so you can enjoy your garden in the warmer weather. For smaller outdoor spaces like a balcony or courtyard garden, a bistro dining set is the perfect choice for eating alfresco.
