Here are some of our favourite garden products that will transform your garden into a calm oasis of fun, rest and relaxation for all the family this summer.

Fancy Your Own Portable Hot Tub?
There’s little more luxurious than relaxing in a hot tub at the end of the day with a glass of wine. But plumbed-in versions are expensive and not practical for all homes. Try a portable spa instead, which provides all of the recuperating benefits for a fraction of the price. It is easy to install and to pack away again at the end of the season. This model fits in seven people and is available from B&Q at £1,475.
A Luxurious Outdoor Sofa
If you have a decking area or canopy to keep your garden dry when those inevitable showers hit, then an outdoor sofa can be extremely comfortable and a real asset to your garden. This rattan one from Wilko has comfortable cushions and a smart design. Even better, there’s a lounging seat, generous proportions to enjoy and a great price on offer at £300.
When the sun starts to go down, there is nothing nicer than the sight of twinkling fairy lights to create atmosphere and colour. Solar power lights are extremely popular, and the technology just keeps on evolving, meaning that the lights can sometimes twinkle all night long! Find a great selection at Argos with a wide range of bulb types, lengths, designs and colours to choose from.
Pretty Garden Cushions
Everyone loves the comfort of a cushion on their chair as they kick back with an al fresco meal or a book, but indoor cushions can get dirty easily and won’t repel any rain. Try these shower-proof cushions from John Lewis instead, which are designed for outdoor use. They have a beautiful design and a treated cover which can better withstand the elements. These fantastic ones are just £11 each and will provide a gorgeous visual feature as well as added comfort to your chairs.
Fun Occasional Chairs
Sometimes you just want to pop your head outside for a coffee, or you may just have a small outdoor space. These stylish small wicker chairs from M&S blend fashion with great looks, and they are incredibly comfortable. Try them on a patio or a decked area with plenty of pot plants around for an inspiring, comfortable refreshment spot for two. They cost £119 each from M&S.
