In August, when most of us are suffering from ‘garden burn-out’, outside seating suddenly becomes very alluring. What better way to spend a lazy sunny day than to take refuge in a shady spot, kick off those shoes and settle down for a quiet hour of peaceful contemplation. To really be at one with your garden, try placing these seats deep into borders, rather than just on the edge of paths. A little winding pathway is very tempting, drawing you in, and then surprising you with the reward of a seat in a secret place. Plant these areas with fragrant flowers such as lilies, roses and buddlejas. Now sit back, close your eyes and submerge yourself in absolute bliss. You deserve it!
