It would be best to describe summer 2016 as a little hit and miss so far in terms of the weather, but there is still time for a heatwave (we are forever the optimists).
Rather than be caught on the hop you need to be fully prepared for any sudden upturn in temperatures as what better excuse to use your garden.
Here’s how to prepare your garden for any impending hot spell:
1. Patio furniture
You’re not telling us you haven’t got any patio furniture yet? Go out and buy some post haste so that you can dine Al fresco and enjoy a few cold drinks in comfort. It also gives you a place for sitting when you fancy burying your head in a good book or savouring the garden to help unwind and switch off.
You don’t want to be stuck indoors eating when the sun is shining outside. Invest in a quality charcoal or gas barbecue. If you’re wondering whether gas or charcoal is best then it completely depends on your personal preference. Food tends to cook quicker on a gas barbecue, whilst a charcoal barbecue takes longer to heat up but gives meat a smokier flavour.
Those with young children should transform their lawn into a playground full of slides, climbing frames, outdoor toys and whatever else is likely to keep them occupied. Maybe even get a set of goalposts or basketball net to sharpen up their sporting skills and keep them active, all whilst you have a drink of something cool and fizzy whilst keeping your eyes on them.
There will inevitably be times when your garden living gets rudely interrupted by the ever unpredictable British weather.
Your enjoyment needn’t be curtailed if you have a conservatory or orangery where you can take sanctuary.
