home network cannot access wifi router from garden

I have wifi router network at my house. I have a long garden and at the end of the garden their is a summer house which I often use. I have an Toshiba and HP laptop both laptops have excellent signal at home. However when I am in the garden my Toshiba laptops does not always give the best connection and HP works perfectly. Is their something I could buy to make my built in wifi on the Toshiba laptop stronger or as strong as the one on the HP?

Thank you in advance.

A better antenna.

... which is not something you can change on most laptops; it's built in, and what you get, is what you get.

You could try an external wifi card; it may or may not work better.
