Fuch­sias are great for the shade and petu­nias, lo­belias and many of the lovely new sea­son peren­ni­als are ideal for hang­ing bas­kets.

You can even plant up your herbs and edi­ble flow­ers into these and use them to gar­nish the evening meal with, which you have just cooked on your new bar­be­cue.

With the cook­ing un­der con­trol you can fo­cus on the whole space be­com­ing a cen­tre for en­ter­tain­ment es­pe­cially through the­warmer months.

It is all about mak­ing a cosy, com­fort­able, handy and prac­ti­cal space to use, so if your out­door liv­ing space is a lit­tle tired look­ing.

Get to it— plant up some pots, shout your­self a new bar­be­cue and sit back in a comfy seat!
