1. Roll out the BBQ!

It’s finally warm enough to get the BBQ up and running, so why not invite all the family over for an alfresco dinner? The Landmann Grill Chef is perfect for the novice barbecuer on a budget - it’ll make everything look easy... even the assembly!

2. Bring the beach to your back garden

If the family are coming with their mini entourage, extra brownie points can be earned by creating a feature to keep the younger guests entertained. Wickes will arm you with the know how to build your own sandpit and offer the tools (and sand) to finish it off in style.

3. Extend your evenings with some grown up night lights

When the last burger has gone and the last sandcastle has been built, it’s nice to have some low lighting to keep the night going. These stainless steel lights are great to make the garden sparkle so you can keep enjoying the outdoors long after the sun sets.

4. Freshen things up with a white coat for Summer

Just because it’s Summer it doesn’t mean it’s all about the garden - make sure you keep your house feeling bright and breezy with an excellent White on White refresh coat for walls and ceilings.

5. Give your floors a seasonal makeover too

Extend the light and airy feeling to your feet by investing in some light coloured flooring. It’s the perfect way to make a small room feel that bit bigger. Use our How To Guide to fit flooring like a pro - with ease and perfection.

6. Get practical with some paving slabs

A new patio can transform not only your garden, but your whole living space, both visually and practically - Wickes has a great choice of paving slabs in a range of textures, colours and designs to transform any garden space; big or small!

7. Invest in the ultimate cleaning machine

There’s no easier (or more fun) way to clean the car, bike, deck, or anything else that needs a good hose down! With this Karcher K5 Pressure Washer, you’ll never want to reach for a sponge again!

8. Maintain your Spring Clean with a Summer Tidy

Whether you’re decluttering your home or just storing away loose items, keep everything tidy with these Really Useful storage boxes - ideal for making extra space in the house and garden.

9. Get beautifully tough on weeds

Give your garden a new look for Summer by using ornamental bark to create a 50-60mm layer of mulch on borders and around plants. It not only looks great but will help to retain moisture and keep weeds down. For weeds with deeper roots, like dandelions, banish them for good with some Ultra Tough Weedol to ensure they don’t return.

10. Share a cold drink with your plants

When your home and your garden is Summer ready, treat yourself to a nice cold drink, but don’t forget to make sure your plants are also well-watered with this easy, hand held watering can.
