When the cooler, less predictable weather starts to come around, you might wonder how you can enjoy all the fruits of your summer gardening labour. Well, we think we've found some great ways! 

It's all about accounting for what weather you might experience, so while you're taking care of your leafy friends and preparing them for imminent frost, don't forget that you might still fancy getting outside this winter. 

Landscapers always seem to be on top of the latest garden trends, but we might just have them beaten with some of these ideas. Take a look and see if any of these ideas will help you to enjoy your garden, even in winter!

9. A simple covered shelter will offer lovely outdoor dining potential

Christmas dinner outside, anyone?
