Cosy it upSusie Watson Designs takes this idea in a slightly different direction by incorporating a firepit. This may be a more practical option for many gardens than a fixed fireplace. She’s also loaded up the space with inviting candles and rugs to give a cosy feel that would make you want to sit outside even on cooler nights.

Remember, remember……the 5th of November and get everyone outside for a bonfire party in your garden. Wrap up well, serve warming comfort food, such jacket potatoes and toffee apples, and keep your guests warm with hot, spiced drinks. If it’s a still, clear night, you might even be able to do a spot of stargazing. See top tips for stargazing here. Alternatively, if you’d rather hand the responsibility over to someone else for the evening, search for local fireworks events in your area, but plan to get there early, as queues are inevitable. If you have pets, make sure they’re safely tucked up indoors.Shop firepits on Houzz.

We’re installing light and heat outdoorsTo create night-time ambience in our gardens (and to allow the party to go on for longer), homeowners are also investing in string lights (34%), fire pits (25%) and patio heaters (14%) to illuminate those summer evenings and crank up the heat on chillier nights.

A firepitExtend your garden’s usability with a firepit. Whether built-in or freestanding, like the one seen here, a firepit means you can stay outside when the sun’s gone down and the evening has chilled off – pretty useful in our less-than-balmy climate. In a small garden, a built-in option can become a central feature of the overall design. If there’s more space to play with, a freestanding pit has the advantage of being portable, so it can be moved to where it’s needed most. They’re also multi-functional – in many cases they can be used as a barbecue, too.Fancy taking the idea further? Check out these firepit tables
