Contemporary chiminea by La Hacienda Lisa Cox

I’ve recently been introduced to La Hacienda who specialise in stylish and affordable garden accessories. Not all of us have pots of money to spend on our gardens but that doesn’t mean we have to compromise of style.

These contemporary  and traditional chimineas are great for adding a bit of atmosphere and warmth to a terrace.

Fire pits and chimineas have become popular over the past few years and in the UK, where warm summer evenings are far from guaranteed, we sometimes need an extra reason to stay outside.

They also offer a range of fire pits and fire baskets, some of which have a grill attachments to double up as a BBQ.

And in the same way as you’d want to add accessories to the inside of your home, why not bring some additional character to your terrace outside.

Lanterns and candles will bring a warm glow and really help to bring some atmosphere in the evening.  If you have an issue with insects you can use citronella candles to help keep them away.

Florian bench seat and table by Oxenwood

As I write this email, the wind is howling outside and the thought of sitting in the garden isn’t very appealing.  But there have been some glimmers of summer over the last few weeks and it’s always the time we start to think about the garden again. Read more

Spring blossom in my garden Lisa Cox Garden Designs

Over the two weeks of RHS Flower Show Cardiff it was really interesting to travel the same road each day and see the leaves unfold.  Not all the trees are fully out yet around our Welsh hills, but yesterday we took a walk to see if the bluebells were in flower in the local wood. Read more
