These tasks are fairly straightforward

As the weather gets warmer, we all start thinking about garden parties and Pimms. So throw a picnic, a BBQ or just relax with friends, because Homebase has everything you need to make your garden your own – from a huge range of BBQs and garden furniture, to lavish gazebos and bunting.

Choose great garden furniture


Relax, dine and play in your garden with our outdoor furniture range. Whether you want to recline with a good book, sit back and sunbathe, or throw a dinner party, find the right garden furniture for you.

From elegant dining sets to relaxing garden furniture, like loungers and hammocks, Homebase has everything you need to enjoy your garden.

Having a lazy day in your garden or dining outdoors – discover how delightful it can be with stylish furniture.

Complete the look

Dress your garden with accessories like bunting, cushions and colourful candles to really transform your garden into a celebratory space.

By purchasing some exterior lights for when it does eventually get dark, you've got everything you need to fulfil your summer garden party potential.


Don't worry about the weather


Don't let the weather spoil your occasion!

The party must go on, so shelter your guests from sweltering sun or heavy rain in style and comfort with a Gazebo or Marquee.

Parasols are also a great way to keep the sun off – a bit of shade will keep you and your guests more comfortable.

Cook up a feast

As the sun starts to shine, get grilling in the garden. With a huge range of BBQs we have something to suit everyone's taste, so you can gather friends and family for a delicious garden feast.

Go for gas if you...
  • Often cook for larger groups and need heat quickly.
  • Crave multiple burners with variable heat settings.
  • Want a barbeque that's quick and easy to clean.
  • Cook regularly, making gas the cheaper option.
Choose charcoal if you...
  • Enjoy the ritual of lighting and stoking the coals.
  • Need a barbeque that's portable and easy to move.
  • Relish the mouth-watering aroma of flame-grilled food.
  • Cook occasionally, making charcoal the cheaper option.

Create the perfect playground

Whether it's croquet, cricket or a spot of lawn tennis, there's plenty of outdoor activities that we all love to do.

Enjoy the simple things with the kids, like making dens or hosting a play date, or have an athletic afternoon with the badminton net and the champagne refreshments that come with it.

But if you want something more relaxing and decadent – a quintessential pleasure – why not host a traditional tea party? It will delight adults and kids alike.
