Now that the weather is slowly but surely starting to get that bit brighter and warmer, we’re already looking forward to relaxing outside with a good book and a glass of something on the best garden furniture, and it looks like Morrison's could be a contender.

If your garden furniture could do with a bit of an upgrade or update, or you are looking to furnish the outdoor space in a new home, you don’t need to spend a great deal to do so. We’re always thoroughly impressed with Morrisons’ garden furniture and this year they’ve stepped it up once again.

The sleek and elegant designs are great value for money, they're even giving Aldi a run for their money. Plus we love the added bonus of being able to pick them up while doing our food shop.

So, here are the pieces from Morrisons that you need to know about this summer.

Vichy Steel Rattan Set

One of our favourite sets from the new collection has got to be the Vichy Steel Rattan Set. We’re big fans of the natural rattan finish, as well as the accompanying olive green shade that pairs with it perfectly.

The compact table will also add interest to any outdoor space thanks to its untraditional shape and there’s plenty of room to place all of your outdoor essentials or even a few glasses of wine. It also looks so much more luxe and expensive than its less than £150 price tag.

5 Piece Convocation Patio Set

If you’re looking for an alternative to a larger outdoor corner sofa, this 5-piece set is a great option. You can choose exactly how to configure it. But if, like us, you fancy putting your feet up after a long day, having the large footstools set up this way is more than ideal.

If you sometimes find that sitting too long on patio seating or furniture can get a little uncomfortable after a while, this set could work better for you due to the plusher and padded materials.

7 Piece Rattan Effect Dining Set

For larger gatherings and outdoor dinner parties, Morrisons also has a luxurious 7-piece set. Comprising a dark-topped dining table and six chairs, the entire set again leans into the rattan trend that is popular all-year round but especially during the warmer months.

Thanks to the durable materials, you won’t need to worry about leaving this out when the weather does inevitably take a turn for the worse. It could also elevate a simple or underutilised corner of your garden into an additional living space and allow you to dine al fresco in style.

Rocking chair

If you don’t have a lot of outdoor space to play with but still want something comfortable to sit out and relax on, let us introduce you to the Morrisons exterior rocking chair.

The sleek and sophisticated grey design means it won’t look out of place in any outdoor setup and adds something a bit more interesting than a traditional garden chair to your space. We’ve got a feeling that young and old in your family will be battling it out to see who gets to sit in it first.

If you really want to soak up the sun and lounge in your garden during the warmer weather, Morrisons’ hammock will allow you to do exactly that. We love the handy attached storage pouch which has space to keep your SPF, reading materials or even your tablet closeby

At less than £100 it is a bit of a bargain, given how sturdy it is and the fact that it comes with a padded pillow for you to rest your head on. And unlike many other hammock options, because you don’t need to tie or fix it to an existing structure to hang it up, you can place it wherever it will get the most sun – or shade – in your garden.

Morrisons have also brought back its take on the ever-popular egg chair, this time for £275, as well as plenty of accessories for your garden.

So, it is well worth having a look at their outdoor and garden offerings the next time that you’re in-store.
