Hi All,

The minute the sun makes an appearance in this country, we all start to think about our gardens. Here are some simple tips to get your garden Summer ready.

Bring cushions and throws outside for a lovely cosy Summer vibe:

Get Out The Paint Brush
Lovely bright paint can really add something to jaded fences and patio furniture. There are lovely bright options available in all DIY stores now so don’t be afraid to go for a lovely bright option:

Make A Feature Out Of Your Garden Shed
The garden shed is a focal point in most gardens. Don’t be afraid to decorate your garden shed in style. Paint it, hang some flowers or pretty signs and if you’re feeling very adventurous, experiment with some stencils:

Create Some Unusual Planters
Think outside the box when it comes to plant containers. These can make a great talking point and will look very eclectic also. Think teapots, chairs, jugs or watering cans to mention a few:

Lets keep our fingers crossed that the sun will stay shining so that we can all get to use our lovely Summer gardens this year.

Until Next Time
