How to get your garden summer ready

Your garden is a versatile and valuable space in which to enjoy the warm summer months, whether that’s enjoying a BBQ with friends or simply relaxing in the sunshine. However, many of us struggle to find ways to make the most of our outside space, so if that’s you, read on for some inspiration.


Spruce up your driveway

As we spend more time outdoors in the warmer weather, summer is the perfect time to give your driveway a makeover. Pull up weeds, tidy up decorative areas, cover any bare patches with more gravel, or if you’re thinking about changing your drive’s look altogether, replace your existing surface with MB Wilkes’ range of gravel and shingle options.


Transform your flower beds

Planting an array of colourful plants in your garden is a great way to create a bright, welcoming atmosphere. To really make an impact, why not create different level flower beds with our beautiful railway sleepers and oak planks?

Consider different decorative stones

Add natural interest to any garden with decorative stones and create such features as a warm, honey coloured path that contrasts beautifully with the green grass, a dramatic flowerbed border with polar white pebbles or, for something completely different, a rockery boasting flamingo pebbles.

Create an al-fresco dining area

An outdoor dining area is a fantastic way to really make the most of your garden in the warmer months, after all, nothing says summer like a spot of al-fresco dining! Our beautiful paving stones form the perfect, level surface for which to place your garden furniture and come in a range of finishes, colours, textures and materials for you to choose from.
