Here we provide you with a few jobs you can do around your home that you can complete over a weekend that will not only make your home look great, but will also be functional for you too!

TIDY UP YOUR GARDEN BEDS

Installing something as simple as a Garden Edge creates a clean line to separate garden beds and lawn areas which makes mowing easier. It’s also a much more attractive edging as opposed to some alternatives such as plastic edging.

Garden walls are a great way to add instant visual impact to your gardens in both your front or back yard of your property. One of their main key features and benefits is that you can separate sections of your yard or landscaping and act in a way to create a focal point of your property, create garden beds, veggie patches or provide separation to your lawn areas. Our range of garden walls are also perfect for DIY projects.

Many of our garden wall products are light-weight and easy to stack and some don’t require capping, making them a quick and easy install that you can do yourself.

Clean and seal your pavers

A simple clean and sealing of your pavers will revitalise and improve the look around your home. Using a high pressure cleaner should suffice to remove dirt build up on your pavers. However, if you have more built up grime and mold on your pavers, you may require the help from some cleaning products. We recommend to visit your local APC and speak to our expert staff on what is the best product to use on your pavers.

When using a high pressure cleaner, sometimes you can remove the Pave Set sand in between your pavers. We recommend to top up any Pave Set before sealing.

Once your pavers are cleaned and dried, it’s the perfect time to apply your sealer. Always ensure before applying any sealer product to your pavers that there is no efflorescence, stains or mold present on your pavers, otherwise you’ll be sealing them in. So ensure you have cleaned your pavers thoroughly. Sealing your pavers will make them easier to clean in future and helps keep them looking better for longer. You need to ensure that the sealer you use is for the type of pavers you have and will provide the finish you want. Speaking with your local APC staff will ensure you get the correct sealer.

PUT IN STEPPING STONEs
