It’s difficult to plan when you’ll be using your garden with typical British summer weather. When we are eventually blessed with a heatwave and everyone and his dog darts straight to the shed to drag out the trusty BBQ. With us being quite a hopeful bunch here at The Harvey Centre, we thought we’d start the planning for you. We took a trip to our Wilko’s to see what bargainous buys we could find to enhance your garden. Here are our top Wilko’s garden finds.
Summer heatwave, we’re ready when you are!
This mediterranean style clay chiminea is perfect for those summer evenings that you want to spend al fresco. We all know that a British summer evening comes with a cool chill in the air. On those nights, enjoy the warmth of a real wood fire under the stars with this fab bargain in our Wilko’s garden finds.
For those who loved Rattan the first time around in the seventies it seems like this trend has crept back around and we love it more than ever. Bring a touch of continental chic to your garden with this black Rattan lounge set from our Wilko’s garden finds. We couldn’t believe our eyes at the price tag with a bargainous £175 for a coffee table, two chairs and a two seater sofa. We can’t wait to use it for entertaining friends on a hot summer’s day.
No garden is complete without some delightful perennials. We scoured Wilko’s garden finds for a plant pot that would add a unique touch to your outdoor area. We found this rustic-looking whitewash wooden barrel that will display your blooms beautifully. Why not buy two to place one on either side of your front door with your favourite foliage? It’s the perfect welcome home at the end of your day.
Every garden needs some outdoor lighting because it’s great for creating a mood and setting the ambience of any outdoor space. Most of all by using lighting you can take your garden from a daytime escape to a cool nighttime spot to hang out with friends and family on a warm summer’s evening. These metal ball string lights that we found in our Wilko’s garden finds create an enchanting atmosphere and are great for transforming an area of your garden into a stylish feature. They’re battery powered too therefore making them practical as well as pretty.
Mirrors are great for adding personality to your garden and furthermore are one of the best tricks for giving the illusion of space. So, small garden owners this is one you’ll love! Mirrors are perfect for opening up an outdoor area as they bring light and space. This ornate scroll mirror we found at a steal for £10 gives a secret garden feel to any outdoor space, use it as a focal point on a brick wall.
Now you’ve got the inspiration from our Wilko’s garden finds it’s time to get your garden summer ready. Next it’s just a matter of sitting back and checking the weather forecast for the first sign of sun to hold your summer soiree. Enjoy!
