Awnings can be a great addition to your patio area. There are a wide range of patio awnings on the market such as manual, electric or fixed and retractable.

Our gardens can look a bit bedraggled and unloved at this time of the year as many plants have died back, pots and planters are empty and deciduous trees and shrubs are bare, but it is at precisely at this time of the year that we actually get to see more of the natural features of our gardens. If you are considering doing some structural changes to your garden such as installing a patio, or a water feature now is the time to start planning the work or even begin clearing areas in preparation. Should you decide on improving or installing a patio, the first step is to measure out the area of the garden where you would like your patio to be situated.

There are lots of ideas online if you are struggling to know where to start.

The cost of garden furniture has risen in recent years and so it is important to look after any garden furniture items that you have so that they will give you years of enjoyment.

It may be necessary to leave the furniture in the garden and cover it with either a purpose made cover or by using a large waterproof tarpaulin sheet. If the latter is used it is a good idea to buy one that has eyelets around the edge and a cord which can be threaded through and tightened at the bottom around the items as this will prevent the cover from...
