A Shopping List for the Warm Times Ahead

A Shopping List for the Warm Times Ahead

We might just be in the early days of spring, and there may still be the odd occasion when you can enjoy your aluminium outdoor furniture, but somehow the sleek sophistication of a metal garden chair rather loses its appeal when there’s a chill in the air.  Cheer up, however, there are plenty of lovely outdoorsy products you can be lusting after, if an aluminium 6-seater’s lost its charms for the time being.

Since the lovely folk at Aluminium Garden Furniture Towers spend so much time outside, we are often to be found in wellies.  We simply couldn’t function without a stout welly boot rack outside the office door.  However, I was flicking through the latest issue of Country Living and their rather good covered welly store caught my eye.   This has the advantage of keeping the wellies undercover so not only dry, but also protected from the strong sun.  I’m sure it’s the latter that has perished many a pair of mine.

Country Living also advertises a very smart spruce wooden log store.  Of course there are heaps (ha, ha) of log stores on the market and it’s quite easy to find one to suit your own personal style from rustic to country house chic, or even an optimistic hint of Mediterranean farmhouse.  Just remember, if your log store is near the house and happens to be in sight of the patio, pay attention to the style of your aluminium patio furniture and try to reflect it in all the elements of the garden.  The result will be more harmonious and make your outside space look more designed.

And where you have logs, you will need kindling.  I’ve always liked those firebuckets for this purpose, but shaker-style wooden trugs and woven baskets are equally easy on the eye.
