Furnishing Your Luxury Summerhouse

Summerhouses are a wonderful way of adding more living space to your property, and it’s worth spending as much attention on their interiors as you would your living room and dining room. Your Chelsea Summerhouse can come fully equipped with double glazed windows, insulation, electric lighting and sockets, meaning your summerhouse will be just like the rooms in your house. You may want to furnish your summerhouse with regular house furniture, which is fine. As an extension to your home, decorating and furnishing it to match makes sense, however, having a new room which is a little separate from your main home is a good excuse to do something different.

Maintaining Your Garden In Winter

Winter in the gardening diary is a lot quieter than at other times but a sunny day in December can still be an enjoyable time to work in your garden. Here are a few tips for keeping your garden looking it’s best during the winter months and preparing for the return of Spring. Rake fallen leaves off the lawn, allowing light and air to the grass. Spike lawns with a garden fork to improve drainage and aeration. Avoid walking on your lawn when it is blanketed by heavy frost or snow, as this will damage the grass beneath. Continue to collect fallen leavesand add to leaf bins or compost bins to rot down. Pruning dormant plants quite severely will prove beneficial for their growth ...
