Painting your house is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways of adding value to your home. It may seem an unnecessary upgrade, but it will always reap rewards, whether you are staying or selling. In fact, it is better to paint when you move in than move out! This way you can enjoy the fresh colours yourself. The aesthetic and functional benefits of painting the exterior and interior of your home are numerous, and every time you pull into your driveway or walk in your front door, it will welcome you with positivity.  When painting your house, there is much to consider - from the colours you choose  (check out our blog on 2021’s colour trends) to the logistical basics which include waterproofing, preparation and general paint supplies and essentials.  Basic Rule #1: Preparation is key The temptation to skip the crack filler, undercoat, primer or waterproofing and...

Summer, Sun & Sandpits - A Winning Childhood Trio

Early childhood memories will always include many hours of playing in the sandpit. The world may have changed, but summertime, sunny days and the outdoors are not the same without playpen sand - no matter the size of your suburban garden or urban outdoor area.   Bags of sandpit sand or washed silica sand become the easiest way of keeping children happily outdoors for hours.

You may not be able to get to the seaside to build sandcastles, but we can bring the experience and the sand to you. It’s all about building childhood memories - one sandpit at a time.
