Painting Your Exterior

Bring colour, style and character to your garden by painting your garden furniture and features! You don’t have to break the bank to have a lovely garden, sometimes a de-weed and a lick of paint can take your garden from blah to ta-dah!

First, decide what type of surface you’re revamping, whether it be wood, brick or metal, there will be a specific type of paint suitable for that job. Picking the right paint ensures your new paint-job lasts; each type of paint has ingredients suited to specific surfaces. Think about the style of your home, you should to choose a colour palette that accents your interior, we wouldn’t recommend bright hot pinks and purples for your country-side bungalow, unless that’s your style.

Another thing to take note of is the quality of the surface you will be painting. If your surface is in need of some TLC, get that done first, this will make sure your hard work will last for seasons to come, especially when it has to endure the wonderful British weather.

Once you’ve decided what you’re painting, and fixed what needs fixing, you can get down to business. Gardens can often get lost in neutral cream shades, tan shades and green shades. But, this is your chance to stand out and create a space that is truly unique. – Yes, I know I said to avoid hot pink & bright purples, but done tastefully you could honestly create a mini-haven.
