Get your garden ready for summer: Top 4 garden trends you need to know

Brighter, warmer days have finally made an appearance here in the UK, and we couldn’t be happier about it!

With the start of summer comes plenty of family barbecues and garden parties with friends, and if you’re the regular host, you’ll need to make sure that your garden is in tip-top shape and ready to welcome your guests.

In this post, our experts at Pheasant & Co share some of our favourite summer garden trends to enhance your outdoor space in time for the festivities.



1.   Indoor-outdoor living spaces

Indoor-outdoor living spaces are set to be huge in 2024, and if you’re looking for a seamless transition from indoors to out, then this trend is for you.

Many things can help you achieve the perfect harmony between your indoor and outdoor space, but our favourite, by far, is a wooden pergola.

Whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly alternative to a traditional home extension, or you’ve set out to create an outdoor dining or lounge area, a wooden pergola is sure to help you do just that.


2.   Cottage-style gardens

If you’re itching to create a charming, whimsical outdoor space, then we’ve got great news for you. Cottage-style gardens are all the rage this summer.

Transforming your garden into a cottage-core haven is easier than you might think, and all you need to do is add a variety of different coloured and textured plants, making sure to plant densely to achieve the classic overflowing appearance synonymous with the cottage-core aesthetic.

It’s also a good idea to incorporate ornamental structures – like wooden planters, for example – to add an extra touch of charm and support your growing garden.

It’s really that simple!


3.   Garden bars

Backyard bars were one of the biggest garden design trends in the summer of 2020, when COVID-19 was at its peak and we were all confined to our homes.

Their popularity has grown year on year, and in 2024, they’re still one of the must-have features for modern back gardens.

If you want to enjoy a quiet pint in the sunshine – from the comfort of your own home, with your own music and without the hustle and bustle of your local – a garden bar is the perfect addition to your outdoor space.


4.   Outdoor catering

If you’re the usual host of family and friends gatherings, there are many ways you can rethink your outdoor space to make it more stylish and functional, including:

  • Outdoor kitchensOutdoor kitchen units are the perfect option for keen home chefs, and provide the perfect place to cook for and entertain guests. From single-door cabinets to double-door cabinets with sinks and stainless steel work surfaces, you’ll never look back.
  • Dining areas – If you’re looking to level up your outdoor dining area, there are plenty of options available to help you do it. From wooden gazebos and pergolas, to other types of garden buildings, you’ll be able to create the ultimate cosy dining area for your guests.
  • Shelter and shade – As well as providing shelter and shade for your guests, there are also options available that provide shelter and shade for your outdoor cooking equipment when it’s not in use. The weather isn’t always on our side, but with one of our wooden BBQ shelters from Pheasant & Co., you can enjoy a cookout come rain or shine without having to worry about putting a damper on your day or ruining your equipment.
