We can truly never predict the weather in the UK and the potential for rain is always on the cards, so it’s always smart to have a rain contingency plan. Consider investing in a tent or gazebo that’s either erected in advance or easy to put up in the event of a downpour. You can even prepare a space inside the house as a back-up – just ensure you’re factoring portability into your snacks and decorations.
While we’re on the subject of water, be wary if you have sprinklers set up. We would recommend an automatic irrigation system, which waters your plants from the root and won’t splash your guests!
