So, it would appear (fingers crossed) that Summer has finally arrived with us here in the UK. About time too…
As ever though, we don’t know how long it will last so it’s best to make the most of the good weather whilst it is with us.
It doesn’t matter whether your garden is big or small, a little love and attention goes a long way and can make a real difference to your enjoyment of your outdoor space.
Our top three suggestions for this year are:-
If you’re planning on throwing a family and friends barbecue, or generally entertaining outdoors then a decking area is ideal. It will be perfect to sit together, create a warm ambience with your outdoor furniture and barbecue, and some nice outdoor lighting.
This can be the perfect addition to your garden, and with the addition of climbing plants and flowers, trained to grow up and around the structure, you will end up with a beautiful, relaxing area. There are countless sizes and styles to suit a variety of gardens. A pergola adds height and privacy to any garden and they make great walkways or small arches.
Nothing lets a garden down more than a patchy, tired looking lawn and unless you have plenty of time on your hands and are very green fingered, a luscious lawn is hard to achieve and even harder to maintain. So why not say goodbye to mowing and raking and opt for something that looks even better than the real thing. An artifical lawn is easy to look after and keep clean, and will look fabulous all year round.
There are plenty of other projects you can get involved in, from landscape design with railway sleepers through to building your own man cave (or she-shed!) and Forestrall are on hand with the materials you need. We have timber yards in Medway and near Dartford, and a vast range of our products are available to buy online, either here for Maidstone, Medway delivery, or here for wider areas within the M25.
