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...

Paving Planner May 2015

As we are creeping into summer, the daylight hours are getting longer and the temperature is beginning to rise. Now is the perfect time to get that patio finished. In the recent weeks we’ve had a number of customers ask us what size slabs they should use, and the patterns that they can create. Bradstone’s website has a programme called ‘Paving Planner’ which we find useful to recommend to customers when looking at laying a new patio. It helps you choose, the type of slab you’re looking for, the sizes how many of each you need in total to fit with your specific area. If you go onto https://www.bradstone.com/ then into ‘Guides and Advice’ you’ll see the first option called ‘Paving Planner’. Next you need to click on the box which says ‘Launch The Planner’ this should then open up to the correct area of the website for you to start designing. Firstly you’ll be asked to put in the measurement and shape of the area, there are some basic shapes you can follow and you are also able to drag the lines to fit your design. You can then go onto the next stage which involves picking you paving. All Bradstone products will be available on the paving planner; they are split into sections on contemporary, traditional and blocks. You can pick your slab and also what colour you would like (The colour may determine if you can buy it individually or in patio packs only).   It should then give you a floor plan of the slabs. Along the right hand column you can change the sizes...
