As the weather heats up and rules on socialising ease, there's no time like the present to give your garden that refresh it so badly needs.

From March 29, people have been given the all clear to socialise in groups of six – or two households – in parks and private gardens.

Like many of us, you may want to get friends and family over soon, but know your garden needs a makeover beforehand.

To make things easier for you, we've put together our favourite pieces on the market right now, including fire pits, garden lighting, tables, chairs and accessories.
