5 low budget ways to spruce up a tired outdoor space

5 low budget ways to spruce up a tired outdoor space

You don’t have to spend a fortune or all your spare time on your garden. If yours needs a pick-up in time for Christmas, these easy weekend projects won’t break the bank and will still leave you time to enjoy a cosy Sunday roast…   1. Paint your fencing The British weather can have a damaging effect on any garden so all timber needs a bit of TLC from time to time. A simple coat of wood treatment can prolong the life of your fence and leave it looking much fresher. With a range of colours on the market, you can transform the look of your garden, all for relatively little cost.   2. Refresh with decorative aggregates Make your garden easier to maintain by replacing grass with decorative aggregates. This space has been given a contemporary facelift by switching lawn for a local gravel and elegant grasses, which are great for drought resistance and don’t need regular mowing!  Gravel provides better drainage than paving and is a great value option for large spaces.

Add a garden structure for a focal point Focal points help guide your eyes through your garden, entice you into the space and add your personal character and style. Sit and stand in places where you are most likely to look at your garden and visualise where you would like to lead the eye. Consider statement planting, a winding path and seating or timber structures. This path leading to a pergola creates an appealing place to relax.   4. Clean up your driveway or patio Natural stone can be prone to build up of stains, mould, algae and residue that can be difficult to shift...

New products for Grange 2016

After 2015 was such a successful year for Grange they have decided to introduce new exciting product ranges which we believe will be extremely popular. Grange has released a Contemporary and Urban range. This includes a number of fencing materials, firstly is their new gate (180cm (h) x 100cm (w) ) This gate has been created to match the contemporary garden range. It has integral metal framing and planed and rounded slats to make this gate our most substantial in the range. It matches perfectly with the panels to create a seamless look throughout your garden. Next is the Grange Contemporary Panel. It is a heavy weight panel that combines modern design with strength and durability. It is made with pressure treated timber. As well as the fence panels Grange have brought out a range of garden screens. These uniquely designed screens will allow you to zone off patio and deck areas it compliments the other items of the contemporary and urban range keeping your garden uniformed. The adjustable slat garden screen allows to you have the slats open or tilt them to create privacy.   An addition to the trellis range that Grange currently have is the Contemporary Fusion trellis. It is a unique design which combines wood and metal to create a heavy duty modern design. The galvanised rods add extra support to plants and the overall structure.

New Year Update 2015

Almost through January already and we are busy preparing for the season ahead. Bradstone and Stonemarket have launched their new product ranges as discussed in our post a couple of months ago. A late addition to the new products by Bradstone is “Mode”, a modern porcelain paving available in two surface finishes, each available in four colours. The porcelain paving concept seems to be gathering increasing momentum and popularity, which Bradstone have picked up on. The Mode paving slabs come in 600x600mm size.  Both the Bradstone and Stonemarket 2015 brochures are available to collect in store and we are impressed with both in clear easy to follow formats, neatly illustrating their range of products and providing inspiration to customers. Our new price guide has also been printed and again this can be picked up in store. We are looking at refreshing our outdoor show areas with some of the new Bradstone products as well as some existing popular ones. We have several new display boards on order from both Bradstone and Stonemarket and are hopeful of receiving these soon to showcase a number of additional paving ranges. Furthermore we now have an account with Brett paving and are ably to supply their products to order. We look forward to developing this relationship. Talking about displays, we have a couple of new display sheds due to arrive this week and we are excited about the Sunningdale Summer House we have coming in. A modern style summerhouse.   Regarding other new products for 2015, Grange our main fencing supplier are launching a couple of new continental style panels as well as new types of...

September Update

Kebur have been enjoying a busy summer with plenty going on. In the last couple of weeks a website has been launched where you can buy full packs of Bradstone online and have them delivered nationwide. Check out the site. We are in the process of building our new main website as well. A few final things need to be sorted but we expect to launch the site in early October. We hope our new site is going to be user-friendly with a more clean and modern feel to our current site. The aim is to have simple navigation and an improved search function. You will also be able to add products to a basket/list for a quote request. Having been quite busy this year we have had to purchase another teletruk forklift to cope with the loading and unloading of lorries in our yard and to keep the place tidy and organised. Mini Me is happy as this one has a “door” so he can stay nice and dry! We have also invested in a device called “Nail Biter” which is in effect a large magnet on wheels that can be pushed around the yard to pick up loose nails etc. With regards to stock issues, we are pleased to say that the fencing situation finally seems to be easing with lead times shortening. Lap panels should be readily available for all sizes within the next couple of weeks and our suppliers are also trying to get the lead time down on closeboard panels as well. Bricks are also becoming more readily available and we have stock of the Warnham Red,...
