With the temperature on the rise we’re all spending more time outdoors, after all, there’s nothing quite like relaxing in the haven that is your own back garden.

Unfortunately after winter our gardens are looking a little drab, so we’ve put together a few ideas for a garden refresh.


Update garden furniture with mosaics

Is your garden table looking a little tired? Mosaics are an easy (and affordable) way to update garden furniture. Choose a colourful mosaic tile – one that’ll stand out and shine when the sun does, stick it down using tile adhesive or a glue gun, and then simply grout with a waterproof grout.

Decking looking dreary?

Has your decking started to look worn? Sun tends to bleach wooden planks which gives decking that tired effect. Wood effect tiles are the perfect replacement for decking as they’re long lasting and don’t require any maintenance. We have plenty of different options, take a look here.

Ditch the stone patio

Bored of looking at a dull concrete patio? Update your patio or gloomy garden path with porcelain tiles that will look great and last a lifetime. Choose a patterned tile or make up your own pattern with different colours like one of our customers did below. The design possibilities are endless.
