With the last of the summer bank holidays this weekend, you may be thinking about putting your three-day break to good use by getting some much needed jobs done around the house or even considering a garden make-over!

When it comes to freshening up your outside space, this can feel like a bit of a daunting task, especially for those of us who aren’t proficient in groundwork, DIY or gardening for that matter! But the good news is it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you think to make massive differences, especially to enjoy the last few weeks of good weather admiring your handy-work.

  • Painting fences, gates or even your front door can be a super-inexpensive and quick way to make a big difference.
  • Planting – it may be nearing the end of the season, but this means plant centres and supermarkets may be selling annual bedding plant packs for pennies, with some garden centres even giving them away for free! Enjoy a few weeks of brightened borders or hanging baskets in exchange for a tiny amount of expense and effort!Pressure washing surfaces; cleaning off your driveway or patio will not only drastically improve the appearance, but will serve you into the winter months by removing weeds, leaves and detritus which may become rotten and slippery later in the year.
  • Get enthusiastic and really make-over your tarmac or concrete surface with an easy-to-use DecraStone Resin Bonded ABC Trade Kit – just clean the area, apply the glue, throw on the stone and leave it to cure! Once complete, remove excess stone with a stiff broom, and admire your handiwork which should last for many summers to come, and give improved slip resistance in wet and icy conditions too! Great for paths, patios, and anywhere else that has a sound and stable base.

So this bank holiday weekend, why not look at a garden make-over and get a few of those jobs done. With HMS resin bonded paving kits we offer national delivery and FREE click and collect as quickly as the same-day subject to availability, there really is no excuse!
