5 ways to enjoy your garden in autumn

Summer has come to an end which means it's time to make the most of autumn. Here are some tips on how to make the most of your outdoor spaces during the colder months 

Beckoning warmth – a firepit

Outdoor projectors are now widely available and affordable. All you need is a sheet or a white garden wall and you can let the good times roll.

Magical lighting

Invite your guests and family to enjoy autumn outdoors with an attractive outdoor lighting scene. Layering lights throughout your garden creates a magical effect. As a guide, think about how you layer lighting in your living spaces.

Get comfortable

All weather seating, or even a colourful rug and an array of oversize cushions ensure your outdoor spaces are still being utilised as the seasons turn. Benches are another good option. Anything that you can easily move if the weather takes a turn for the worst. Low coffee tables are a good idea too, perfect for casual dining or as a good place for that outdoor projector.

Vegetable gardens aren't just for spring and summer!

As well as a great activity for your family you can boast about your home-grown produce to guests.
