5 top garden party prep tips

1. Paint the fences

There’s nothing quite like a perfectly neat fence with a fresh lick of paint or stain. A fresh fence can take your garden from unkept to party-ready in the space of a day.

What’s even better is that a professional can do it for you.

Take a look at how much it costs to get your fences painted.

2. Jet wash your patio or decking

After the storms have brought dirt and dust to our trusty patios and decking, it’s time to take them from dull to dazzling.

We’ve all seen those videos online of paving being jetwashed – now you can sit back in your garden and watch a Checkatrade professional jet wash your garden.

Find out how much patio cleaning costs.

3. Cut back the garden

Imagine the backdrop of your perfectly manicured lawn and your neat and tidy shrubs for those all-important Insta snaps that are about to happen.

Don’t fret about getting it done, get a professional landscaper in to give you a helping hand.
