If you’re looking to spruce up your garden ahead of summer, the arrival of the longer days is the perfect time, but high-end outdoor accessories can come at a price.
Since lockdown made people more invested than ever in al fresco socialising at home, outdoor furniture has become big business, with retailers offering big ticket pieces such as the £299 pizza oven from Ooni or a luxury dining set from Teako costing an eye-watering £2,499.
But is it worth splashing the cash, or can you fool your guests with an ALDI bargain costing a fraction of the price.
The budge supermaret is currently offering garden décor, furniture and accessories as part of its spring event with prices starting at just £1.69.
The collection, which includes everything from miniature pizza ovens to heaters equipped with Bluetooth speakers, is almost undistinguishable from very swanky outdoor kit from designers costing four times the price.
