How To Keep Your Garden Warm Outside This Winter

When the coldness hits, we know that spending time in your garden is the last thing you want to do. But if you’ve spent the summer making your outdoor area a place to enjoy, you don’t want to neglect it over the winter months.

From adorning it with extra warm accessories like a fire pit to wrapping up and cooking for extra heat, you can still enjoy your garden in the colder months! To help, we’ve compiled a list of tips and ideas on keeping your garden warm this winter.

Fire Pits

Fire pits aren’t only for the summer evenings, they can be used even more often in the winter, day or night. They’re the perfect way to keep a party going or a comfortable centrepiece for when you have smokers visit. And you can get a variety of styles to fit your outdoor aesthetic.

Our Outback collection consists of two stylish fire pits, one boasting a classic timber table, the other with a contemporary stainless steel look.

The Sherwood gas fire pit has a traditional style with table space for snacks and drinks decorated with clear beads. If you’re looking for something stylish to add to your garden, this would be a stunning addition. And with the opportunity to use it as a normal coffee table when the fire pit isn’t lit, it has the adaptability to be used for a range of occasions.

It also has a protective glass windshield, stainless steel cover and weather cover to make it suitable for any type of weather. It’s a must for adding warmth to your garden in the winter.

Or if you’re looking for something with a more modern look, the Infinity gas fire pit is ideal. Also offering weather-protective elements, a space for snacks and decorative beads, it’s a stylish and useful purchase to extend your time in the garden.

Order a fire pit to keep yourselves cosy this winter to keep the good times going. You’ll never have to wait for alfresco dining season again!

Patio Heater

If a fire pit isn’t your thing, you could opt for a patio heater instead. There are a variety of styles to choose from, including hanging heaters or on-the-wall heaters. We offer a more statement piece, the Signature Flame Tower.

There’s no doubt that this is set to keep you and your guests warm no matter the temperature, whilst also lighting up your garden with a large flame. Imagine the possibilities, bonfire night won’t be so freezing next year!

Add this patio heater to your basket if outdoor entertaining is your forte, it’ll be your go-to as soon as the sun starts to set.

Comfortable Seating

When you’re uncomfortable, it can be even more difficult to stay warm. That’s why purchasing some comfy seats, cushions and blankets is a great way to start making your garden more suitable for winter.

Doubling up comfy seating with fleecy blankets will make for an even more enjoyable outdoor experience.

Fire Up The BBQ

Who said BBQs can only happen in the summer? If you’ve invested in a good quality BBQ, keeping it in the shed for half of the year seems like a waste. So why not wrap up and get the BBQ going to add that extra bit of warmth to your outdoor party?

We have a guide on how to BBQ in the colder weather, just for times like these. From what to cook to the necessary utensils, you can find out all you need to know to create the ultimate BBQ this winter, whilst staying warm.

Keep Things Covered

Another addition that’ll add extra warmth to your garden is a large parasol or umbrella. Not only will it block the dreaded wind and rain, but you can use it all year round to block the sunshine.

This is a great choice if you’re looking for something less expensive but something you can use all year round.

Outdoor Entertainment All Year Round

Do you struggle to make plans in the winter? You shouldn’t let the weather forecast dictate your entertainment plans. With the right accessories, you can invite guests around to your garden no matter the time of year and become the go-to host for a fun time outside.

We have everything you could possibly need to enjoy a fun, warm and comfortable outdoor party. Whether you’re hosting a winter BBQ, bonfire night party or simply want to spend time in your garden during the winter, a fire pit or outdoor heater can make all the difference.
