Consider a fire pitIf you have a large, open or semi-open outdoor space with turf, where an open flame wouldn’t pose a safety hazard, consider adding in a fire pit. It’s great for creating a cosy atmosphere in winter and some models can be used for barbecuing too – perfect for entertaining. If you plan on placing a fire pit on tiles or concrete, you’ll need to add in a protective surface beneath it to prevent heat damage to the flooring. Tip: For additional safely, seek out a built-in style or one with a protective grate. A fire pit is not recommended for homes with small children.

18. Location: Aspendale Beach, VictoriaLandscape designer: Bayon GardensWhy we love it: Proof that you don’t need a huge backyard to create an appealing and functional outdoor space. We love how the owners have created a cosy, sunken spot for conversation, with a fire pit at the centre to keep toes toasty.

It’s all very lovely having dining and cooking spaces directly off the house, but think about creating a separate seating area away in another corner of the garden, which you can move to after dinner when temperatures cool down. A fire bowl like this one is so easy to use, with little prep required. Imagine roasted marshmallows and guitar strumming by the fire if you need extra inspiration.
