How to keep warm in your garden this AutumnWith the colder weather starting to creep in, many people will think that they have to forget being able to use their garden space to relax and perhaps even socialise in. Of course, as it gets colder, there is always a chance that you will go outside less, but you don’t have to give up on the idea of being outside completely.This is largely down to the fact that there is an assortment of ways that you can try and heat up your garden space. The one you choose will be entirely down to you, the area you have, and how much heat you want to achieve. To help you to decide, let’s look at the best ways to heat your garden.
FirepitsOne of the most common ways to heat your garden has to be the firepit. Firepits are made from clay, cast iron or steel and are fuelled by either wood or charcoal. They are not only able to bring a real sense of cosy warmth to your garden, but because they come in various designs, they will also add a touch of style to your garden.A great thing about firepits is that they can be used in any sized garden, and even though you can spend out on a top-of-the-range model, you can actually pick up firepits for quite a budget-friendly price.
ChimineaIf you are a fan of something more traditional, then you may want to go for an outdoor chiminea. These have a potbelly stove with a wide bottom attached to a narrow chimney, blowing all the smoke out.A big plus point for chimineas over firepits is that the fire is covered over, which not only means that it can be safer if you are worried about children, but it also means that the fire won’t go out if it is a bit windy or rainy.
Gas heaterIn comparison to the chiminea, we have a gas patio heater. These are much more modern designs and therefore are designed to really kick out plenty of heat over a wider area. At the same time, the more traditional heaters can only reach a couple of metres maximum.Many people choose gas heaters because they come in lots of different styles, so you can find something that still fits in with the theme of your garden. They can be costly to buy, and you will also need to factor in your fuel costs, but if budget is not necessarily a big worry for you, then this shouldn’t be a problem.These three heater types are not the only types. However, they are the most common. They not only bring a sense of warmth to your garden but can also be used to create a focal point that you can enjoy all year round.Team them up with soft and inviting garden furniture (and maybe a few blankets), and you will have a space you want to use all year round.
