Quick Garden Fixes

This week’s Home Comforts focuses on Garden Rooms, but if you’d rather concentrate on the garden itself, here are some easy fixes for a quick spruce up by the experts at Wickes.

Border Edging

Make an impact with border edging, perfect for lining a flower garden or even a pond, adding individuality to your outdoor area.

Solar Lights

Add a little magic to your garden with some outdoor lights, such as Wickes LED 50 Bulb Solar String Lights. Depending on space, wrap the lights around tree branches or wound into bushes for a great ambience. A simple but cost-effective way to complement your garden.
