Your outdoor home projects are as important to us as the indoor decoration. We want you to be able to complete each task to the best of your ability using tools and equipment that are both functional and useful to the tasks at hand. You’ll find our range of Garden and DIY equipment is tough enough to handle even the biggest jobs. Having a house means maintaining not just the inside but also the exterior of the building like the surrounding garden, driveway and any additional land around your home.
Garden decoration and landscaping is all about making your space work for you. Gardens come in all shapes and sizes, so understanding how you can best use the space and layout of your garden is very important. Knowing which area of your garden gets the most sun is a good place to start, this way you’ll have an idea of the best spot to place your garden furniture. Try splitting your garden into sections using our garden screens for privacy and areas of shade, or you can create walk ways and paths using our edging range to create clear partitioning and guidance that will keep people off your lovely grass as well as add a safe walkway to your front and back garden space.
Garden Furniture and Outdoor Entertaining
Adding an area that can be used to put garden dining furniture will make your garden a feature of your home. This will create opportunities to socialise and spend quality time with one another - try adding a pergola with decking to achieve a stunning statement structure. Get the most out of the good weather by spending as much time as you can outside, do it in comfort with a stylish sun lounger for somewhere you can doze off during those long summer afternoons. We love a reason to have a barbecue and you'll find plenty of options to suit your style of grilling. From classic charcoal to gas barbecues, including some that even have pizza ovens and smokers! check out our handy bbq buying guide to help you decide when it comes to choosing the best BBQ for you. Gather the family, friends and neighbours around your brand-new garden furniture set to indulge in a bit of al-fresco dining. Get inspired and make your garden a whimsical and enchanting place with our range of outdoor lights and garden decorations. Let us help you make your garden a place you’re proud to show off this spring and summer season.
Looking for the lush green lines of a well-manicured lawn? Grass grows exceptionally fast during the light summer months, so keep your garden in shape with a rotary lawnmower. Rugged enough to handle the long grass and overgrown gardens. We also stock large lawnmowers with wide designs that are ideal for larger gardens, some also have a collection bag feature that gathers the cut grass to make disposing easier which means no raking afterwards. If you have moss growing in your lawn, scarifiers will do an excellent job of reducing moss growth over time. Find all the tools to make your lawn beautiful; from grass trimmers, leaf blowers and hedge trimmers to chainsaws or pressure washers.
Painting and Decorating
Now that you have the DIY skills down, try turning them to painting and decorating the interior of your home. Sometimes just giving a room a lick of new paint or creating a feature wall with some beautiful wallpaper will give your home a new lease of life. Our range of painting and decorating supplies will help to inject a bit of colour or design into a plain interior. You'll also find shed and fence paint to ensure your new shed stays water resistant.
If you're handy around the house you should have the right tools for the job. Whether it's fixing that leaky pipe, mending the broken shelf or hanging a picture frame, we have the DIY tools to get the job done. Every house should have a reliable toolbox compete with a drill as standard. And every drill should have a choice of good drill accessories - you'll find a choice of drill sets that cover heavy gauge work and masonry to tiny gauge drill bits for drilling through plasterboard. Find a range of tools in our DIY section including angle grinders, screwdrivers, sanders and saws to assist you in all your projects.
There’s nothing more irritating than a short cable that interrupts you when you’re just trying to get the job done but have to keep stopping to unplug and plug in your power tools. Not to worry, you'll find our extension leads incredibly handy when covering large distances in the garden or going up and down the stairs. Our electrical supplies will help to ensure you have enough power to complete your renovations with ease. And if those projects cause you to work late into the night – you can always pick up a head torch to assist you in low lit areas.
