Making your home and garden summer ready !


The temperature has risen, the trees are blossoming, and the feel of summer is just around the corner here in Yorkshire, so what better way to kick start your summer season by getting your home and garden ready for them family BBQs, party's, and family evenings in the sun.

I've put together some ideas to freshen up the home in time for summer shindigs !


Tidy up the garden.

Clear flower beds of weeds, bark can help with this. De-weed any where else like lawns, in-between slabs, pavements, and driveways, here's a link with the best rated weed killers this year ; https://weedeaterscentral.com/best-weed-killer/driveway/

Prune the roses, shrubs, and anything else that might be overgrown like trees and bushes. Clean the BBQ and mow the lawn. Sweep up rubble and leaves.

Clean the patio, decking and garden furniture.

Soapy water and a brush should be sufficient enough to bring grimy wood back to life, or you could use a pressure washer, here's a link to some with reviews and offers on; testwinner.live - Pressure Washer tested & reviewed by experts. Then re-oil any wooden furniture to make it look like new :)

Gorgeous Gutters.

Cleaning your gutters is vital to prevent lasting damage to your gutters, if you get them cleaned out in the summer this will help you with potential leaf build up in the Autumn.

Clean your windows !

Give your windows, sills and doors some TLC inside and out, use a scrub daddy sponge and some Elbow Grease all purpose degreaser paired with some soapy warm water and your windows will be summer ready. Also lubricate any hinges and locking mechanisms.

Inside the home.

Try swapping out some soft furnishings, like pillow and cushion cases, throws, towels, and table wear to some new bright summery colours or Aztec patterns, makes a a huge difference for a smaller cost.

Summer Houses.

If your fortunate enough to be able to treat yourself and add a extra room to your home, try looking into a new Summer House, Yorkshire Windows supply and fit Summer Houses/Garden Rooms, of all different shapes, sizes, colours and styles to suit any home
