Pimp up your patio
We’re swapping holidays abroad for le jardín this summer, so best make it the ultimate destination. Cue the Muddy shopping edit of the coolest accessories to deck out your outdoor space.
We’d be happy too if we had one of these bad boys in the back garden. Designed by Alice Temperley’s other half, this awesome disco pizza oven comes in three sizes and brings guaranteed party vibes to your space.
Let it pour
For wine in the garden, these Corkcicle tumblers are a no brainer to avoid any broken glass incidents (we’ve all been there). The tumblers come in six colours – but I’m calling dibs on this sleek copper stainless steel.
Planning on drinking your way through the summer? This playful drinks trolly should help (alcohol not included, sorry). Available from Garden Trading.
All fired up
If you don’t want a huge BBQ taking up space on your patio, this Kadai (a traditional Indian method of cooking) is a stylish alternative and doubles up as a fire pit centrepiece.
Meet you at the bar
Bar in your garden? No brainer. This marble-effect one, from John Lewis, comes with two funky bar stools, ice draws, tools and a cutting board for prepping cocktails. Just add booze.
Add a little sophistication to your outdoor space with this funky Fatboy chandelier, available from A White Room. It also comes in green, but I’m loving this transparent version – the bold red wiring gives it a quirky, contemporary edge.
A chair that rocks, literally. Pair this funky Fatboy Rock’n’Roll chair with your choice of beanbag for the ultimate comfort station.
Chair £229, Beanbag £169
You wanna pizza me?
Rustle up some dough (easier than it sounds), scatter on some toppings and whack it in this pizza oven of dreams to be cooked in a minute flat. Dorset-based Gozney supply The Pig hotel group and the Franco Manca restaurant chain so you’re definitely in safe hands with this bit of kit. There’s also a petite, ‘real life’ alternative available at a friendlier price point.
If you follow one garden trend this year, make it this one. Hang this arched mirror up on the wall or prop it up against pots to give the illusion of a larger space. Find it online at Perch & Parrow.
Add a splash of colour to your patio with this set of bright fibreglass planters from MADE. We love the contrasting colours and modern geometric shape.
Keep your cool
How cool (sorry) is this retro drinks cooler? Ideal for keeping your vino chilled when you want to catch every second of sunlight outdoors. For Mr M, there’s a nifty built in bottle opener on the side. Available from Wayfair.
On the side
An absolute steal from Argos (anyone else getting Oliver Bonas vibes?), this gold mesh drinks table has a detachable tray for serving Mojitos, obvs.
FIRE ME UP
Don’t want a huge hunk of metal taking up space on your patio? Try this contemporary pedestal charcoal BBQ, by Heston Blumenthal, instead. The stylish bit of kit is ready to cook in just 10 mins and comes with a rotisserie attachment.
A neon sign instantly adds cool creds to any space and this pink option is speaking my language. Available from Oliver Bonas.
Pour it up
British brand Haws is a favourite of gardening pros (it’s the oldest watering can manufacturer in the world dontcha know). This racing green number is packing practical creds, with a long spout to maximise water pressure and reach deep in to flower beds, plus it’s timeless design will sit pretty for years.
Some like it hot
At a friendlier price point than a permanent hot tub, this CosySpa is a great alternative and much more attractive than other inflatable options that are out there. It comes in a four or six person size and features a whopping 130 jets. Blow it up in five mins flat.
£369.99 reduced from £429.99
These galvanised metal planters, from Home Barn, will bring a little vintage charm to your patio or deck. It’s a lucky dip ordering online, with each pot a slightly different shape and size.
Light it up
These playful set of LED bulbs will add instant fun to your space – drape them off a tree, over your shed or by the hot tub (hey, a girl can dream). Available from IKEA.
£18.75 reduced from £25
