It's time to get outside this Summer. Long days, endless play, picnics, friends and fun.

We love playing in the garden, at the beach, on holiday - but there's no need for plastic, disposable toys that live a short life and then go to waste. Not to mention the eye-sore mix of multiple primary colours. At The Modern Nursery we are all about beautiful items that will last longer. Products you are proud to have in your home and garden. 

From Outdoor wooden furniture to Sand & Water Play, the best quality Trampolines, Inflatables or Bucket and Spade to take on holiday - we have you covered.

Outdoor Play

Kids love to garden, especially with you! If you are green fingered like us, or are just learning the ropes, chances are the kids will want to join in.

The only problem is, it is not necessarily safe for them to handle your gardening tools. That's where we can solve the problem! From hand tools to rakes, wheelbarrows and magnifying glasses, we have a wonderful assortment of tools so your little one can discover with you.

If there is one thing most families have in their garden, it's a Trampoline. We love them - and there's no doubt that kids love them - but they can be an eye-sore. Whether it's in-the-ground or a stand-alone Trampoline - we have the safest and most stylish styles on the market. 

Climbing Frames, Swings and Slides 


Most families have a swing or a slide, but so commonly made from plastic. Think long term and sustainable. Plus your garden will look insta-ready! Too good not to share.

Holiday ready

Inflatables don't just have to be for holiday, as soon as the sun hits in the UK, we like to get the paddling pool out! For the ultimate in stylish, instagram-worthy beach play, look no further than Sunnylife. Rainbows and Unicorns, Flamingos and Watermelons, we tick every trend here with the highest quality materials.
