Here comes the sun! Summer is officially underway and with our garden patio furniture you can gear up your garden to make the most of the warmer weather.

Whether you choose designer patio furniture from Bramblecrest, Hartman or Kettler, outdoor bean bags for instant relaxation zones, or a stone garden bench that can stay in situ all year round, we've got everything you need.

Let's take a look at some of the best ways to gear up your garden for the summer months.

Outdoor Bean Bags

Outdoor bean bags are a quick, easy and comfy way to add some slouchy seating to any part of your garden, and are designed to withstand more rugged use outside.

That means heavier fabrics that can withstand an outdoor environment, which will also be easier to clean when they need it during the months and years of use ahead.

Outdoor bean bags are instantly portable, making them a great option if you like to move around your garden for different points of view, for extra privacy, or to stay in the sun as it moves across the sky.

Stone Garden Bench

A stone garden bench serves several purposes, including of course giving you somewhere to sit while wandering around your garden.

But it also has an architectural, almost sculptural appearance, and a stone bench set back among the shrubs can be a real focal point.

Vintage stone garden benches also give a sense of age, and this can combine and contrast well with other grey garden furniture to help define different seating zones even better.

Bramblecrest Garden Furniture

Looking at some of our designer patio furniture, and Bramblecrest garden furniture has lots to offer.

Bramblecrest furniture includes stylish and practical patio furniture in contemporary styles, as well as useful accessories including parasols and heavy parasol bases.

The fawn and grey garden furniture in the Bramblecrest range comes with season-proof cushions and removable covers and is consistently rated five stars by Bents customers.

Hartman Garden Furniture

More contemporary patio furniture is available from Hartman, including bistro sets and larger patio seating sets.

You'll find grill tables and fire pits in our Hartman garden furniture clearance sale, giving you even better prices that can keep you warm well into the evening.

These make great options for winter patio furniture too, as you can quickly set a fire in the brazier to create a comfortable outside space on the coldest of days.

Kettler Garden Furniture

Finally, take a look in our Kettler garden furniture sale for more savings on stylish patio furniture from a great contemporary brand.

Continuing the trend for shades of grey, much of the Kettler furniture range stocked at Bents includes larger corner suites that can instantly define an entire seating area.

Perfect if you want to create an enclosed seating zone for dining, drinks or just relaxation, without any landscaping required.

Look out for items from the other designer garden furniture brands stocked at Bents, including 4 Seasons, Alexander Rose, Extreme Lounging, Lifestyle Garden, Norfolk Leisure and Supremo, and our great range of Weber barbecues for outdoor dining this summer.
