Create your own country garden, perfect for relaxing or entertaining this summer. Inspired by a classic rural look, the John Lewis Croft collection is both beautiful and considered. Invest in charming but durable wooden furniture suited to all weather, and pair with a neutral colour palette to get the country look.
. Mini Patio: Sometimes, just the simple job of cleaning up the deck or patio can make your home feel ready for summer entertaining. You could even make your own cushions for your outdoor furniture. (via Angel in the North)
The main entertaining area includes built in hardwood seating, outdoor lighting and a shade sail for shelter on those rainy days… All this makes this garden space a great place to enjoy well into the evening.
