It’s the perfect time of year to give your garden a makeover, whether it be a simple garden-bed tidy up, or installing different accessories. In the process, it would be best to use metal materials because they are cost efficient and easy to maintain.
You can add value to the area by installing garden gates. You can easily achieve this with the right style and appropriate central theme for it.
A garden makeover is a good excuse to hunker down and do some extreme weeding. Remove any weeds and also plants that haven’t taken well and look sickly or out of place. Spend some time tilling the soil and consider introducing some fertiliser to the garden.
Hedges and trees can be trimmed to neaten up the garden, and any garbage removed to prepare for your makeover project. If there is a lot of rubbish to be removed, consider hiring a large skip-bin and sharing the cost with your neighbours.
Replacing the Garden Gate
Wooden gates deteriorate over time, and can make your garden look untidy after just a few years. For this reason, it would be best to opt for metal gates because they are less expensive than timber (and other materials) and a lot easier to maintain. In addition, you can easily paint garden gates in any colour that you choose, and this can be a great way to add some style to your garden area.
Measure the old gate and add an extra 2 inches or so to the length. This will give the hinges space to fit. After you buy the new gate, you can think about painting it to match the existing fence or other features in the garden. It’s much easier to paint it before installing the gate, so lay down some newspaper and get it done first.
While you are fitting a new gate, look at the rest of the fence to see if any other repairs are needed. If you aren’t very good with tools, consider hiring a local handyman.
