Make your garden a relaxing space for less with these hot offers


I AM lucky enough to have a garden and it has been a real sanctuary in lockdown.

It is a place to relax, have a barbecue and enjoy a long-awaited catch-up in the sunshine with friends or family.

Make your garden a relaxing space for less with these hot offers

But come the evening, it can get chilly.

So how can you make your outside space perfect for relaxing all day and night?

I asked Jonny Brierley of outdoor firm Moda Furnishings for his tips . . . 

FIRE STARTER: Jonny says: “The hottest new accessory is a fire pit.

“They keep you warm as the sun sets and temperatures drop but also act as a stylish focal point to create an ultra-cosy atmosphere.

“Make sure it’s lit before your guests arrive for a wow factor as they step into the garden.”

My tip: I love the square fire pit and BBQ grill for £49 at, down from £73.96.

Or for a cheaper option, try the Sol 72 outdoor steel fire pit from for £22.99.

HOME SWEET HOME: Home is where the heart is . . . and our gardens too.

Jonny says: “People are applying the same interest they have in the design of their homes to the design of their gardens, introducing softer outdoor-use upholstery, lighting and accessories.”

My tip: Soft furnishings and textiles can easily create a chic and comfy space.

Think blankets, cushions and dainty string lights.

I like the teal zigzag blanket, £9.99 at

And the set of nine geometric pattern cushion covers, £34.36 on, down from £66.52, will add even more colour to your outdoor space.

TWO-IN-ONE: Jonny says: “People are looking for versatile furniture.

“This is all wrapped up in the desire for multifunctionality.

“Items such as the rising table allow us to use a table for a morning coffee then elevate it for meals.”

My tip: The Multigot three-in-one wicker bar table on is a great option but costs £128.99.

Instead, get the similar Ibiza rattan-effect drinks cooler table, which is just £69.99 at

It will be great for your morning coffee . . . and keep your booze chilled in the evenings too.

Why spend a whopping £195 on a faux-fur throw from Oka…
…when this identical one is just £20

I LIKE Oka’s faux-fur throw, above, but it costs a scary £195.

So I was pleased to find a similar one at Tesco for just £20.

Great for keeping warm in the garden.

SAVE: £175
