TRIBU Monsieur Tricot Garden Lights, £815
Getting the lighting right in your outdoor space is crucial, and can make or break the atmosphere for your party, barbecue or garden drinks. Avoid flooding the area with bright or harsh beams of light, as this is a sure-fire way to kill the vibe.

Jotu Froya Outdoor Modern Chiminea, £319
The British summertime is traditionally unpredictable when it comes to the weather, and temperatures can drop rather low after dark – so if you’re planning on carrying on in the garden until late or simply want to make the most of a less than seasonable summer day, then a chiminea is just the ticket for keeping guests warm.
Jotu Froya’s corten steel offering is a sophisticated modern model that is quick and easy to set up, and will pair perfectly with the overall aesthetic of your new garden space.
