The first signs of spring are in the air, with evenings beginning to get longer and the days brighter. If you want to be able to make the most of every last bit of sunshine this year, then now's the time to get your outside space in order.

The early bird catches the worm, as they say, and that's certainly true when shopping for garden furniture, as by buying early you'll avoid the inevitable rush on swing seats and sun loungers that happens every summer. Plus, out of season there are some real bargains to be found.

Our favourite affordable garden furniture shops

Some garden furniture can cost around £1,000, but we're loath to spend so much on items that will inevitably weather over time.

So we've rounded up the best garden furniture currently available for under £150.

Whether you have a garden, yard or balcony, there'll be something here to suit your space, from swing seats to sun loungers that wouldn't look out of place in the Med, Bistro style tables and chairs, and plenty of on-trend rattan options.
