Updated Jul 8, 2022 | Posted May 31, 2022 | Miscellaneous, Professional insight | 0 comments

Summer is a fantastic time to enjoy the beauty of our outdoor spaces. However, most of us can neglect our gardens over the winter and by the time those warmer months creep in, you may not feel prepared to entertain guests. Thankfully, this short guide is here to offer a helping hand. Whether you want to jazz up your al fresco dining with an Ooni pizza oven – or create the ultimate cosy haven with rattan furniture, there are plenty of things you can be doing to get your garden summer-ready. Let’s get started! 

Flowers and Shrubs


Flowers and shrubs are a fantastic way to add a pop of colour to your garden and bring it to life. You certainly don’t have to be a top gardener to make it look great. Conduct some research regarding the best flowers to plant in your garden. There is plenty of beginner’s advice online to help you get started. Not only do plants and shrubs make your garden look more appealing, but they also invite wildlife to your outdoor space so you can spot some butterflies, dragonflies, and bumblebees – you name it! 

Al Fresco Dining


No summer evening is complete without a spot of al fresco dining. There is nothing better than sitting down with your friends and tucking into some food in the sunshine. Why not have a modern take on a traditional BBQ and install an Ooni pizza oven in your garden instead? Portable, fun, and crafted for the outdoors, the Ooni Pizza Oven is perfect for your garden this summer. You and your friends can enjoy crispy stone-baked pizzas with the perfect addition of a flame-cooked flavour. With food so good, you will struggle to get your guests to leave.  




If you want to get your garden summer-ready for you and your guests, you will need to invest in some practical seating. After all, how will you enjoy some beautiful pizza from your Ooni pizza oven without a place to sit? There are plenty of outdoor seating options available online. If you want to grab a bargain, consider shopping for your outdoor seating during the colder months. There are also plenty of DIY seating options that you can make for yourself. If you have old garden furniture, save some money by refreshing it. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders and make your old furniture look brand new.  

Fire Pit


Although the summer months are warmer than the winter, the evenings can still get chilly. So, if you want to enjoy your garden, no matter what time of day it is, consider investing in a fire pit. The warm glow of a fire pit creates a cosy ambience, but it also lights up the darker areas of your outdoor space. The upfront cost of a fire pit can be pretty substantial. So, if you want to save some money, consider building your own. Take a look at some DIY fire pits online and consider following an online tutorial. There is no denying that a fire pit can be a unique conversation piece in your garden this summer.
