Aldi’s new garden range is PERFECT for summer

Aldi’s new garden range is PERFECT for summer

The weather may take a cloudier turn this week, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of our summer weather. In isolation, we’ve all been making use of our gardens more and to that end, Aldi has released a new collection, with items perfect for days spent lounging in the sun. It even includes their hugely popular ‘egg’ chair


The humble garden is perhaps humble no longer thanks to Covid-19. Never have we appreciated our outdoor spaces as we do now and it stands to reason that we want to make the best of it with summer starting. The smallest of changes can make the most impact when it comes to elevating our gardens, and regardless of your style, the words ‘classic’ and ‘comfort’ will be high on many lists. Aldi’s latest range of outdoor furnishings makes the very best of your now adored little patch of green – day or night.

Scroll for our favourites from the collection:

Lazy lounging 

Hanging Egg Chair, €169.99

Back by popular demand, and suitable for indoor and outdoor use, the Hanging Egg Chair is weather-resistant (because, Ireland) and features a powder-coated frame. Be it in a snug corner in your patio or displayed proudly outside for all to see, it’ll be a popular resting spot for each and every guest.

Safe in the shade

Cantilever Parasol, €59.99

Taking respite for the harsh midday sun will be easier in the shade with this cantilevered parasol. Easy to assemble, it has a crank mechanism for easy opening and closing with six steel ribs for stability. It’ll give UV50 sun protection (though we’ll always recommend you apply SPF even so) and available in two colours: cream or anthracite.

Proud display 

Lattice Wooden Planter, €29.99

There’s no reason your climbing plants shouldn’t be a feature. Available in green, grey or natural, these wooden planters will highlight your shrubs and add colour to your surroundings.

Through the looking glass  

Decorative Glass Table, €16.99

Never underestimate the importance of your garden furniture. These decorative glass tables (available in a peacock or poppy design) will make for an eye-catching feature, even more so when the sun is out.

Let the light in

Solar Metal Lantern,  €12.99 each

These stylish lamps set alight in the evening glow are ideal for table-tops or hanging on border hooks.

Large Solar Bollard Stake Light, €14.99 each

Perfect for larger spaces, these larger solar stake lights (made from stainless steel and glass) are for you if your garden needs plenty of eye-catching light-based landmarks.

Solar Spiral Light, €5.99 each

For an extra touch of sparkle, these spiral lights will add just the right amount of glow once dusk hits.

And… breathe

Wooden Lounger, €79.99

This classically designed wood lounger is perfect for whiling away the long afternoons of summer. It includes a padded cushion for extra comfort. Now all you need is a book, an ice-cold drink and you’re all set.

The above products and more are available in 142 Aldi stores nationwide from Thursday, 4th June
