Garden Refresh Must-Haves

Spring is well and truly here. Now is the time to revamp your tired garden and get it ready for the long warm sunny weather (fingers crossed) of summer. This year however, will be a little different to last year. Pinterest recently released data that shows people searching “minimalist garden” has received 11x more searches this February vs last year. Ideas for small spaces has also jumped with searches for “small back garden ideas” receiving 8x more searches – wowza!

With all this in mind, I thought it was time to find some modern garden furniture that can help transform your outside space into somewhere you can enjoy. Much of this was a lot of research for myself as I’m going to be completely redoing my garden as part of my house renovation. So I have a few favourites on this list…

If you’re searching for a garden lounge set on a budget, you’ll definitely find something. But be quick, I feel many of these will sell out fast this Spring! If you’re looking to blow the budget, I’ve picked out some modern pieces which will look great. To finish off your space, I’ve included a few must-haves to complete the look.
