Warmer and longer days are just around the corner, making it the perfect time to start preparing your garden for summer. There's nothing quite like inviting your friends and family over for some quality time in the garden. Whether you're soaking up the sun and summer breeze or unwinding together under the stars during those warm summer evenings, it's bound to be a memorable experience.

Clean, Declutter and Organise

Begin with the toughest job, and the rest will feel like a breeze. No one wants messy, wild weeds in the garden when guests are around, or if you’re just looking to relax all summer, so consider getting some gardening tools and tackling the weeding. Just spend a few hours hoeing, weeding, and mowing, and your garden will look much better already. Tidy up the garden shed by getting rid of things you don't need and giving it a fresh coat of paint if it looks worn out. This will make your outdoor space more organized and appealing.

Plant Some Colour into the Garden

After clearing out all the weeds from the garden, why not add a splash of colour and fragrance by planting some vibrant flowers throughout? There's nothing quite like having freshly cut blooms from your own garden to adorn your table when hosting events, not to mention how they brighten up the entire outdoor space. Visit us in-store at Rathwood for assistance in selecting the perfect flowers for your garden, or opt for ready-to-bloom potted plants for an instant burst of colour.

Think About Seating

Once your garden and patio are all set, it's time to bring out the garden furniture or invest in some if you don't have any yet. It's perfect for summertime outdoor events or simply relaxing with the family. Here at Rathwood, we offer a variety of garden furniture to accommodate any family size, whether it's just a couple or a group of eight. Our range includes bistros, 4-seater sets, and even 8-seater sets, etc. For those planning late-night outdoor gatherings, our sets with firepits are ideal for keeping you warm during the cooler evenings. Adding cushions and throws can further enhance the comfort and coziness of your seating area.

Turn your Garden into an Outdoor Kitchen

Cooking outdoors in the garden when the weather is fine is a delightful way to bond with family and friends. BBQs are cherished activities during the summer in Ireland, and selecting the ideal equipment is crucial. At Rathwood, we provide a variety of barbecues suited for all preferences, along with pizza ovens ideal for any gathering.


Be Prepared for any Weather

Given the unpredictable nature of Irish weather, it's wise to anticipate various conditions. Whether shielding yourself from the sun with a parasol or seeking shelter from unexpected rain with a gazebo, being prepared ensures uninterrupted enjoyment of outdoor activities.
