Garden bar – why not build your own garden bar where during the hot summer months, you can sit and enjoy a delicious drink and maybe some snacks. You can make these from the wood that you can get from the above company and decorate them in a variety of ways. They are pretty simple to create and some plans and videos on how to do this online can be found.
