2022 Garden Essentials

Spring is on its way – despite the recent weather – and most of us here at Cuckooland (apart from the few console mad couch potatoes) are looking forward to once again bronzing ourselves in the seasonal sun and spending time in our gardens.

From holding family star-gazing sessions under the stars to catching up with your ‘bestie’ over cocktails well into the evening, your garden has the potential to bring all of your favourite people together. Making memories your loved ones will treasure forever is a (spring) breeze with the ever evolving range of essential garden products at Cuckooland.

Here, is a small selection of our garden essentials for 2022.

1. For Drinks with the Girls

Astreea Igloo 360 Dome with Oslo PVC Weatherproof Cover

You’ve probably seen these stunning clear domes at restaurants, bars and stately homes during the last few months – and we’re betting you wanted one for your garden.

Now is your chance to create a multipurpose garden ‘room’ for the entire family within the sturdy aerospace-grade aluminium frame – there’s no foundation needed. Just measure, place and enjoy.

Available in three sizes – this 360 degrees PVC cover dome accommodates up to 16 people with the extra-large dome option.

Water and wind-resistant, it’s even snowproof – so could last you 12 months of the year with its inbuilt Philips lighting system making this ideal for string lights when it turns dusk.

2. Buy Multipurpose Pods

HypeDome Garden Pod

The frameless nature of this garden dome means there are no metal bands restricting your view of the sky.

Pop a telescope inside and add an outdoor rug for a family night of up to eight people, at the best observatory in town.

You can make full use of the HypeDome during the daytime too. Imagine an alfresco reading nook or yoga studio under the 100% recyclable (UV protected) polycarbonate panels – 200 times tougher than glass.

Not sure where to place it yet? It’ll arrive with screws or steel spikes depending on whether you’re fixing it to a deck or the ground.

3. Cook a Pizza in the ‘Great Outdoors’

Ooni Karu 12 Wood and Charcoal Fired Portable Pizza Oven

Imagine the aroma of wood and charcoal-fired pizzas cooking in this sleek portable pizza oven by Ooni. You’ll need a pizza assistant to keep up with this quick-cook oven – it only takes 60 seconds, heating to 500ºC in just 15 minutes.

It’s a ‘must-have’ piece of kit – sure to attract a crowd of hungry friends and neighbours given design features such as the custom-designed fuel tray to maximise airflow, patented flame keeper for maximum heat retention, brushed stainless steel and glass-reinforced nylon.

A 15mm cordierite stone baking board is included – other accessories are available to purchase individually.

4. Go ‘Supersize’

Ooni Koda 16 Gas-Powered Outdoor Pizza Oven

Looking to cook 16-inch pizzas that are fit for long summer evenings, birthdays and sporting events?

This propane gas powered outdoor pizza oven is perfect for family and social gatherings – offering impressive specifications.

Its quick heating time (“hello” convenience), ‘L-shaped’ gas burner with waterfall effect flame (cooking everything evenly), gas ignition and adjustable heat control dial means this pizza will rival the barbeque. It’s smoke and soot free too.

The best bit – other than the delicious food it creates – it’s ready to be used as soon as you open the box.

5. Don’t Forget the Accessories

Fab Hab Serowe Outdoor Rug in Black

Other than its striking reversible design – offering the look of two rugs in one – there are so many reasons you’ll think Fab Hab is fab-ulous!

You can place this rug in your ‘igloo’ dome or pod (listed above), reassured by the eco values of this Indian design house. A vegan company, they’re an eco-conscious force that have repurposed recycled plastic bottles to create this beautiful outdoor rug.

It’s mildew, mold and UV resistant too – so you can happily use it on the grass for picnics or sunbathing in your garden.

6. Illuminate your World

Maze Rattan 3 x 3m Pergola with Roof and LED Lighting

Resembling something from a modern Mediterranean villa – this contemporary pergola by Maze Rattan offers you and your loved ones the perfect area to ‘chill’ or host a party, wherever you’re based.

The pergola roof is UV protected – providing welcome shade in the hottest months – whilst the high quality of the aluminium frame is obvious.

You’ll also receive four Textilene weighted sides that can be raised or lowered manually by using the crankle handle, a fixing kit and the all-important LED remote control.

Simply choose from ‘White’ or ‘Multicoloured’ lights – at the time of purchase. These dimmable lighting panels are fixed to the roof’s gutter – offering drainage through the legs.

7. Toasted Marshmallows, Anyone?

Maze Rattan Pulse 3 Seat Sofa Dining Set with Fire Pit Table

This modular dining set certainly has its ‘pulse’ on what’s trending – it’s simply gorgeous.

With a choice of four beautiful neutral shades to narrow down – it will sit proudly within your garden whatever the existing flowers or decor scheme.

Featuring a three-seater sofa, two armchairs, one bench and a fire pit table – safety-aware parents will appreciate the raised glass surround, whilst kids can learn how to toast marshmallows under their supervision.

Manufactured using (UV protected) dyed acrylic with a powder-coated aluminium frame, this is an all-weather material that can be left outside – whilst we’d recommend storing the supportive deep-filled showerproof cushions elsewhere.

Simply attach a bottle of LPG propane (not included) and switch on the fire using the battery-operated ignition.

8. Lights with ‘Curve Appeal’

Maze Rattan Set of 2 Satellite Solar Garden Light with Stand

We’re also big fans of Maze Rattan’s two-piece solar lighting set.

Each piece is freestanding, so you can scatter several of these sets along a path or around a pool to create an extra special garden setting.

They will charge up via USB or the sun’s rays in the daytime – ready for the level of brightness you select (each light can be set to 30%, 50% and 100% of its maximum brightness).

The perfect ingredient for a romantic dinner set outside – we’re confident you’ll fall in love with their glow when placed on a table, or the floor using their stands.
