  3. Our Top 3 Children’s Playhouses

    Our Top 3 Children’s Playhouses

    The benefits of outdoor play for children are numerous, and well documented. But, living in such a technology-dominated world, it’s becoming more difficult to prise children away from their devices and encourage them to spend time outside. Compared to the wealth of television shows and online games available at their fingertips, it’s no wonder that a grassy area surrounded by fence panels or hedges seems rather dull.

    Outdoor Furniture Ideas

    The temperature is, at long last, reaching the high 20's. What does this mean for the Great British public? Friday evenings and Saturdays spent in beer gardens with a cold, refreshing pint in hand; complaints from employees and school children alike - ‘is it even legal to make us work/study in this heat?’; and, of course, the long-awaited return of summer barbecues with friends and family.

     

    Outdoor furniture time is here

     

    Is there anything better in life than relaxing in the garden on a Sunday afternoon, chowing down on a delicious barbecued

    5 Small Summerhouses for Under £900

    Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have your own private sanctuary, somewhere to briefly escape the competing demands of the modern world? There’s no need to go far. The top of the garden is just fine, safely tucked away, within the grounds of your family home.

  8. Freestanding Wooden and Metal Garages

    Freestanding Wooden and Metal Garages

    Not all of us are lucky enough to own a house with an in-built car garage; our automobiles and motorbikes instead occupy driveways and allocated roadside spaces. For those with enough available space though, a garage is certainly a worthwhile investment. Not only do they keep our vehicles safe and secure, even driving down expensive insurance premiums in some cases, but they can also prove invaluable spaces within which garden tools, gym equipment or toys can be stored.

  9. Cutting Edge Borders

    Cutting Edge Borders

    Borders Provide Your Garden Design with A Cutting Edge

    A painting without a frame is, well, unframed. A haircut without a slight snip to ‘take it over the ears’ is unfinished and not ready for the mirror to see the back of your head. And a garden without border edges is how the words on a page look without my reading glasses - all a slightly bit blurred. Strong borders also allow you to cut and shape your lawn or border to the exact shape you need. A line trimmer gets up close and personal to keep things tidy. Your garden simply looks better for it.

  10. Garden and Outdoor Furniture Storage Ideas During Winter

    Garden and Outdoor Furniture Storage Ideas During Winter

    The first day of winter is very nearly upon us; Jack Frost’s icy grip is tightening on Britain, attacking us with sleet, snow and freezing winds. At this time of year, one would probably worry about whether there is enough time to finish the Christmas Shopping and perhaps not the rattan set sitting on the patio, but maybe your garden furniture deserves a quick thought?

    Your beautiful outdoor bench and chairs are a statement piece in the garden; they deserve some protection from the elements during the winter season. Of course, modern furniture is constructed from a range of high quality materials but, as the old saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry. Come the summer, you want to ensure everything will be in pristine condition to impress the neighbours at barbecues and garden parties.
