Whether you’re building, renovating or just feel like something new, we have 6 tips that will help…


Feel the sense of satisfaction that comes from a spruce up! Below are six DIY backyard projects to do over the long summer holidays. Get your kids and family involved to prepare for the long awaited summer!


Tip N.1 – Redo your letterbox

Although it may sound simple and ineffective, first impressions count, and a letterbox is often the first thing everyone sees when they look at your property.

You could give it a paint, or, if your looking for something really fresh and different, why not get a new one. They come in all different shapes, sizes, colours and materials. So choose a style that makes your home stand-out!

Remember: A well-maintained letterbox indicates a well-maintained home. What says ‘sleek sophistication’ more than natural stone?


Tip N.2 –  Add a fire pit or pizza oven!

Create some atmosphere through your home with your very own fire pit or pizza oven. Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean you can’t toast marshmallows from the comfort of your own backyard!

If you like the idea, but want to keep the expense low, why not go for a fire pit!? It’s practical, cheap and most importantly, you’ll make loads of fun memories with it. However, if you’re looking for more of a luxury, high-end feel, whilst implementing a fun and exciting way to entertain your guests, why not opt for a pizza oven! Family friendly, pizza ovens make the perfect addition to any home.

Remember: Get that special holiday feel with a backyard fire pit, or, imagine the delicious aroma of a homemade stone cooked pizza right out of the oven. Either way, you can’t lose! 


‘Organic Bluestone’ Steppers


Tip N.3 –  Stepping Stones

But what If you’ve tried everything, and still feel like there’s just something missing.

What about stepping stones?!

Simple they may appear, but, if placed correctly, they can actually serve as a feature in your garden. They can be used to break up expanses of turf and accentuate your favourite aspects of the garden. The best part is, they come in hundreds of different shapes, colours and textures, so there’s bound to be something for you! If you want a harmonious flow through your garden, why not try our Natural Stone Steppers?

Remember: Stepping Stones bring balance to a garden, introduce some greenery around the steps or cut through plants and grass with the impressive textural contrast of stone.


Tip N.4 – Edge the garden

If you’re a bit of a perfectionist like me, you’ll really appreciate Garden Edging. Although it seems boring, Garden Edging tidies up the transition between lawn and landscape with a streamlined edge. The lawn edging keeps grass roots from creeping into the stone wall, and the mulch provides a mowing track for lawn mower wheels.

Remember: Edging is like organisation for you garden, it keeps everything in its place, whilst creating a congruous and sleek finish. It’s easy to install and easy on the eye…It’s the cherry on top of the cake!
