As we enter summer, it’s a great treat to be able to spend more time out in your garden. Whether you’re enjoying a small family barbeque or a big garden party, as the weather gets hotter, more of us are flocking outdoors. If you want to keep the fun going even when the sun goes down and the weather gets colder, there are a lot of great garden heaters on the market.
From electric heaters to fire pits, you’ll find one to suit any garden on any budget. Here are just a few of the best options available right now.
This simple fire basket is perfect for heating your patio on a small budget. Fire baskets add a touch of cosiness to your patio as the nights get colder, as you sit with your family and friends and enjoy watching the fire crackle.
This fire basket does require some assembly, but with few others on the market at such a low price point, it’s worth it. It’s great for small spaces, with a width and depth of 41cm, and a height of 50cm, but make sure you’ve got enough space to keep it far enough away from anything flammable.
If you’re willing to splash a bit more cash but without breaking the bank, this freestanding heater is a great choice. The infrared lamp offers heat and light in areas of up to 15m2. Electric lamps offer more convenience than fire baskets – simply plug in and you’ve got almost instant heat, and there’s no need to keep buying logs to put in the basket.
This heater is waterproof, so there are no worries if the weather takes an unexpected turn. The adjustable height and three different heat settings allow optimal customisation to give you the right amount of heat wherever you need it.
Mexican chimeneas are a popular addition to any garden. There are loads of great ones to choose from, of different colours, patterns, and sizes, but this cast iron one adds a rustic touch to your garden. This traditional chimenea adds heat to your garden as well as being beautiful to look at. It also comes with a grill attachment, allowing it to double up as a barbeque – this can save space in small gardens, so you don’t have to choose between a grill and a heater.
The medium size would be a good choice for most average sized gardens, with a height of 110cm and a width of 50cm, but the Santa Lucia cast iron chimenea also comes in smaller and larger sizes, so you could choose one of these options depending on the size of your patio.
This infrared heater attaches to most garden parasols. Four adjustable heads let everyone adjust their side to suit them – so there won’t be any arguments about some people getting more heat than others! It’s great for small areas as it just clips on to a parasol you’ve already got, without needing any extra room.
It heats people in areas of up to 4m2. Infrared light waves aren’t affected by the wind, so they can heat people directly, wherever you point them, without being blown off course. This makes this heater great for use in any weather, which is essential for the unpredictable British summer time!

As well as offering heat, this firepit is a stylish addition to your patio. The sleek design works well with minimalistic styles, and has a more modern look than some other heaters on the market. A mesh cover, grate and poker are all included. This firepit is suitable for both wood and charcoal burning.
At a larger size, this may not be suitable for the smallest of patios, or the smallest of budgets, but if you’re willing to splash out on something trendy that will impress your guests as well as keeping them warm, look no further.
