Summer is now fast approaching and with it the potential to spend time with our loved ones – finger’s crossed that we may have BBQs and garden parties on the agenda, and see the back of this horrendous pandemic, once and for all… It’s always best to think positive, so now is the perfect time to start preparing your garden for the summer. And we have some great advice on how to choose the perfect garden furniture for an ultra-relaxing and enjoyable summer 2021.
Hanging chairs (or swing chairs) are a great way to relax and unwind and will without a doubt make a fantastic addition to your garden. Just imagine a warm and balmy afternoon, cold drink in your hand, swinging and swaying on your stylish and comfortable hanging chair, not a care in the world… What could be better? There are lots of different types of hanging chairs – wooden, metal, wicker, single, double… At Hilltop we have a range of these chairs available, all with one thing in common - We only ever stock the most luxurious and comfortable available, so your comfort will be guaranteed. The only problem you’ll have is your guests fighting over who gets to sit there!
Fire Pit / Fire Basket
There’s nothing like a fire to act as a focal point and get the conversations going, and it will also keep you warm as the day turns to night – meaning you can enjoy your garden for even longer. Everyone’s a winner! But seriously, fire has been an important tool in our social arsenal for thousands of years, providing safety, light, warmth, and a place to meet and socialise with the people who matter most. I mean who doesn’t enjoy a good old ghost story whilst staring into the flames?
At Hilltop we sell some fantastic fire pits and fire baskets… But why not go one better and get a corner set or a dining set with a built-in fire pit!
Stylish Bistro Sets
Nothing evokes that Mediterranean summer feeling quite a like a bistro set. And one of the great things about these sets is that they are small, compact, and can fit in almost any garden. Even if your outdoor space consists of only a small courtyard or balcony, you could still fit a bistro set in. Bistro sets come in all shapes, sizes, and styles these days. Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated, Parisian style bistro set, or a cushioned wicker ensemble, we have the perfect bistro set for your garden at Hilltop.
Let’s be honest now… We all look forward to the summer and getting that BBQ going, but how often does a sunny day turn into thundery showers, just when we put the sausages on? It’s certainly happened to me more times than I care to mention. But hey, that’s the UK for you, with our wonderfully unpredictable weather keeping us on our toes! Anyway, there’s no need to worry about this, we have just the thing to keep your BBQ going and your sausages dry. Introducing, the BBQ Shelter! It’s the perfect thing to protect you from our erratic weather and keep you cooking whatever the weather. In fact, surely you want to keep your guests dry too. If you do, check out our next suggestion…
There’s always a good chance that the weather will turn the moment we decide to have a BBQ, Yet hardly any of us actually prepare for this eventuality. We mentioned the BBQ shelter above, which will keep you and your food dry, but what about your guests? Well, we have the perfect solution with our fantastic Knutsford Pavilion. At just under 3 metre squared, it’s plenty big enough to provide shelter for a number of guests, plus it means you won’t be left outside cooking on your own!
It’s likely to be a couple of months before we can all start enjoying gatherings and garden get togethers again. But if you start preparing now, by the summer you will have everything in place to really make the most of our well-deserved freedom. All we need now is a hot summer to boot!
