When the weather gets warmer we all start thinking about how we can spend more time in our gardens, enjoying the sunshine. So, we found some of the most incredible gardens out there to inspire you, with each boasting its own unique identity and style. The common theme is that they're all ideal for socialising.

Take a look and see if you need to speak to your landscaper about creating a party hub in your outdoor space but please don't forget to invite us to the first soirée!
