The moment the sun begins to shine, even for just one day, we all rush out into the garden to make the most of it. Sometimes, though, the brightest sunshine can’t compensate for tired-looking and uncomfortable garden furniture. Show your garden some love this summer by buying a few new pieces.
During the summer months the garden becomes an extension to our homes and it is only fitting that it should reflect our own personal style in the same way that our interiors do. The days of coloured, plastic patio chairs and tables are long gone. Outdoor styles now more closely resemble the kind of soft and comfortable furnishings that we would expect to see in a lounge or sitting room.
Whether you intend to use your outdoor space for relaxing, entertaining or even just sunbathing, it is easy to find just the right furniture pieces for your needs. Everything from contemporary and modern to more traditional and utilitarian can be found in the marketplace these days.
One of the rising trends in quality garden furniture in recent years is the garden three-piece suite or corner sofa. Available in a wide range of styles and colours, these pieces truly define an outdoor living space. With wooden, metal or rattan frames, adorned with soft cushions and scatter pillows, they easily convert your outdoor space into a garden lounge. A large corner sofa in a square shape, with bright white cushions, is the epitome of modern garden style. An outsize version of the traditional lounge sofa, this item can form the centrepiece of your garden design. Much like its indoor counterpart, it can also be a hub or gathering place for the whole family.
Traditional with a twist
If something a little more traditional is to your taste, then Swedish style, pale wood framed chairs and sofa could be the perfect choice. With bright cushions and a low level coffee table to match, it can be the ideal place to take a continental breakfast on a sunny morning.

I am a full-time working mom too. If you grow things under your nose, you can make this work.
I propagate in three places:
I borrowed a side table from one of the outdoor chairs and set a plastic tray on it full of things I am rooting. It is mostly in filtered sunlight. The key thing is that it is near the hose and on the way from the car to the house. I am forced ot look at these very time I walk by so it is easy to give them a drink when they need it. If I am terribly rushed, I fill the tray with water and let the pots suck it up themselves. Obvisouly, that would be less successful if it weren't so warm out
