As we prepare to gather in our gardens from 29th March, we’re all doing our best to get our gardens into the best condition possible. While garden furniture, plants and preparing the grass will help the aesthetics of your outdoor space, it’s still going to be a bit cold to spend all evening outside. However, the firepit trend is here to fix that. No longer something we lust over on Love Island, firepits are now commonplace in our gardens and a must-have for entertaining through the spring.

Read on for our pick of the best firepits on the market this season.
