Planning to give your garden a makeover this year? Furniture, BBQs, and outdoor heating should be at the top of your garden list this National Gardening Week (2nd - 8th May 2022)!

As well as the great stuff you can buy to get you and your family into gardening, there are several products to make your garden to relax and socialise throughout the year. Whether you decide to buy new garden furniture or a BBQ, make sure you get outside and see how you can make the most of your outdoor space.

Grillstream Classic Hybrid BBQ

Grillstream Barbecues

Finding the right BBQ can be tricky; there are several models to choose from that vary in price. But if you enjoy cooking outdoors, it's worth buying something that is both long-lasting and adaptable.

Whether you are after a Classic or Gourmet BBQ, the Grillstream Hybrid Gas & Charcoal Barbecues are the perfect choice. Grillstream is one of the UK's most innovative BBQ brands in the UK thanks to its unique hybrid system, which makes it the first dual fuel BBQ with the convenience of cooking with both charcoal or gas and will give you healthy, tasty dishes with no flare-ups. 

Another great feature of this revolutionary piece of outdoor cooking equipment is its gastro system, which includes a dynamic and removable round griddle for cooking with the Grillstream pizza stone, chicken roaster, or wok (sold separately).

Kettler Outdoor Heating Lantern

Kettler Kalos Outdoor Heating Collection

Whether you want to take away the chill at your next garden party or gathering with friends, Kettler's Kalos Patio Heaters will add warmth to your outdoor living space.

Even during the summer, nights are chilly and temperatures can drop a significant amount outside. With an electric outdoor patio heater, you will no longer be concerned about the night air troubling you whilst relaxing in the garden. Outdoor heating equipment will keep evenings warm and comfortable, making your nights out in the garden last longer.

You do not need to spend a lot of time inside your home if you have a carefully placed garden patio heater. Regardless of the amount of room you have in your outdoor space, you can place more than one patio heater to keep you and your guests nice and warm.

Alexander Rose Wooden Garden Bench

Garden Benches

A garden table and chairs are useful for enjoying a BBQ in the garden. However, if you prefer reading a good book or chilling with a glass of wine, a bench is perfect for relaxing in the garden on a sunny day.

A bench is arguably the most long-lasting patio seating choice. Due to their high level of strength and durability, you don't need to be concerned about your hardwood bench breaking, so you will be able to enjoy relaxing on your garden bench for years to come as long it is well-treated on a regular basis. 

We sell a wide range of Alexander Rose Garden Benches that are both practical and take up minimal space, making them suitable for big or small gardens. We have various sizes and styles to choose from, including traditional hardwood styles as well as modern interpretations of the classic garden bench.
