With the improving Spring weather we are now beginning to think about our outdoor areas and preparing them ready for some garden leisure time. The bad winter weather leaves a trail of mess on what was a tranquil place for some outside living, but with a few hours of care and attention the garden can be transformed just by hoeing the flower beds and discarding any leaves and plants from last year.

Cut the grass and sprinkle some lawn feed, tidy the edges and you then have the setting for planting this years flower beds. Get the patio area cleaned and ready for outdoor furniture, grill and planters. Check the garden chairs for damage.

Does it just need a thorough clean and preparing with either varnish or paint, or is it broken and needs replacing. Or do you feel like treating yourself and buying for some new modern patio furniture. There are some amazing choices of all year round fabric and designs in patio furniture now.

Lounge furniture can be matched to the patio table and chairs to give you a modern outdoor lounge area. Garden loungers also come in a variety of fabrics and style and can be matched with your outdoor furniture to give a continuity of elegance.

 

Patio Furniture

 

By placing some planters and wall pots filled with colourful aromatic plants, flowers or herbs onto your patio area will bring your garden into your external living area giving it a relaxed feel.

Cooking outdoors is one of the joys of the summer lifestyle and with today's modern portable propane grills it could not get any easier, they are easy to use and cleaning is child's play. No more trying to ignite the charcoal grill, black smoke, flash backs or fat splashes. Modern propane grills are lightweight, easy to store and easy to operate. The grill plates have drainage grooves to allow fat to run into a grease trap so no more burning oil splashes or flare ups and the plates are large enough to cook for everybody in one session.

Another addition to your garden could be an above ground pool. They come in all shapes and sizes. There are inflatable pools to suit all gardens, or there is the framed pool with heavy duty liners or you could opt for the moulded sectional pool. A larger pool can become a permanent feature in the garden by landscaping it with shrubs, bushes and fencing. The larger pools can be accessorised with steps, platforms, fencing and towel holders.

If you purchase a filter, you do not need to drain your pool. Just turn the filter on once a day for an hour and you will have clean fresh water to bathe in. Cover the pool of a night with a tarpaulin cover, to prevent leaves, debris or wild animals. There are robotic cleaners for the bottom of the pool that will clean away any debris in an hour. The motors come with a 12 month guarantee and changeable filters.

It is time to put your feet up and enjoy the summertime with some garden leisure and outdoor living.
