Patio Ideas

Lie back and relax with a comfy hammock

Trust us, there’s no better way to nap than in a softly swinging hammock – so why not add one to your patio ready for those long summer afternoons. Available in a range of colours and materials, it’s the ultimate relaxation accessory.

Make the most of your view with a lookout point

If your patio has a view, it’s time to use it. Make the most of your patio panorama by adding a lookout point – packed with spaces to sit and enjoy the view. They’re ideal for entertaining too, giving an eye-catching space to show off to guests and family alike when they come to visit.

Set the scene with a little mood lighting

When the sun goes down, it’s the perfect time to bring your patio to life with a little mood lighting. From calming colour-changing bulbs to illuminated walkways and concealed lights, there’s no better way to add some outdoor atmosphere.

Feel the heat with a crackling fire pit

Create a family-friendly centrepiece to your patio and enjoy your garden long into the evening with the toasty-warm power of a fire pit. From toasting marshmallows to just warming your hands, there’s nothing better for keeping the cold away outdoors.

Bring some life to your patio with a potting area

Patios don’t just have to be for eating or entertaining – they’re perfect for a little light gardening too. All you need is a space to sit and fill your pots and planters with soil, feed and plants, and you can enjoy fresh greenery all around you. Just make sure you’ve picked out your perfect plant colours and varieties before you start.
