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...

What’s going on at Kebur!

On the 15th of August on ITV ‘Love Your Garden’ we saw the show create a path out of ‘Breedon Amber Special Gravel’. They wanted to create a simple pathway with very low maintenance, here at Kebur we supply and stock ‘Gold Path Self Binding Gravel’. It has proven very popular in the last few years to create country paths, parking areas and even small areas in the garden. The Gold Path is 10mm – dust graded and comes in bulk bags 850kg- 1000kg (0.6cu metre). One bag covers around 11sqm at a 50mm depth. The Gold Path is very easy to lay. It needs to be on an area of free drainage to guarantee that the water is not held below the surface. You need to have a solid level base under the area that the self-binding gravel will go, we usually recommend a few inches of scalping’s (MOT)This foundation should then be compacted with a roller not weighing less than 1 tonne to provide a flat level surface. You want to lay in moist conditions to help the materials bind together and then compact the material down to get the best results (Rollers are recommended for this step). Please call a member of staff if you have any further questions.     This September Kebur has decided to take part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning. On the 25th we will be selling a number of different sweet treats all made by the staff at Kebur, we will also be selling Tea and Coffee. All the money we raise will be going towards a great cause. Macmillan is...
