I have already started making plans for our new garden and when Aldi asked if I would like to feature some items from their Garden Event I was made up. Our new garden is small but I am quite looking forward to less grass to mow and a clean slate when it comes to plants. My plan is to make it like an extension of the house. Lots of comfy seating, potted plants, a water feature and tonnes of twinkly lights for those summer evenings. Which was where Aldi came in.
I was sent a selection of their solar lights and am thrilled with the range. Starting at £2.99 with these gorgeous crystal glass stake lights which will look great in amongst some planters. My favourite have to be the crackle ball lights which come in a pack of 6 and are great quality despite being only £12.99!
I was also sent 3 large plastic planters at £7.99 each and a grey hanging basket. They are all well made and really hard wearing, ideal for our garden with Callie 'The Destructor' McDonald! I can't wait to pick up some new. plants for them but I currently know nothing about botanicals so will have to do some research on which ones I am least likely to kill off within 2 weeks.
The final items were BBQ and furniture covers, great for keeping them all clean and dry in this unpredictable weather. We may actually need to buy a BBQ when we move though as our last one is still sat having been uncleaned since last summer after Joe forgot about it. Off to the tip with that bad boy I think and I vow to make sure one of us cleans the next one after each use.
I have created a mood board over on my Pinterest for the garden and cannot wait to get started. I will be sharing more pictures of these products in the new garden so do pop over to Instagram where our First Time Buyers updates take place on an almost daily basis!
