We're on the countdown to summer (it's just seven weeks away, people!) so we've started eyeing up some cheap outdoor products from our favourite retailers to give our outdoor space a summer makeover.

Of course, the weather is always a surprise at this time of the year, but we Brits have never let a bit of bad weather stand in the way of our plans (or, frankly, we'd never leave our sofas).

So whether you want to power wash your grungy-looking cement tiles, get yourself a decent BBQ, remove the streaks from your windows, or finally get that hot tub you've wanted since the first lockdown, the upcoming Easter Weekend is an opportune time to get those tasks ticked off your to-do list.

Need more motivation to get prepping? We've picked out these incredible bargains from some of our favourite retailers.

Then when the warm weather really kicks in all you'll need to do is grab your SPF, your sunnies, and a novel and make the most of the 'Back Garden Del Sol'.

3. Texas 43cm Kettle Charcoal BB £30 | £30 (Was £40) from Homebase

Plus, the four charcoal dividers can be arranged individually or in a circular shape for direct or indirect grilling, and you can regulate the air circulation via the ventilation slider on the lid and in the fire bowl. And, yes, there's an ash catcher, too.

4. Gardenline Bamboo Effect Balcony Set | £169.99 (Was £189.99) from Aldi

Looks so much more expensive than it is", this Aldi set, which features a glass-topped side table and two chairs with cushions, is a worthy investment and could be just what your outdoor space needs to have a totally new feel.

The bamboo effect furniture is powder-coated (which gives a durable, non-chip finish) as well as being rust, weather, and UV resistant - so it's sure to last for years to come.

5. MSpa Quick-Heating Inflatable Hot Tub 2 Person | £449.98 (Was £630) from John Lewis & Partners

Our favourite features, though are 104 air jets offering three levels of bubble massage. Oh, and the side table (on which we'd store snacks and Prosecco).
