Giving your garden a summer makeover can be a daunting job, so we asked five experts here at Ronseal for their top garden hacks to save you time and money. These quick and easy tricks will get your garden looking great!

1. Keep plants in containers


“Keep your plants in their plastic pots and sink them into the soil, rather than replanting them straight into the earth. This way, they’re easy to swap out when the season changes and can be moved around to fill any bare spots.” - Caroline Vaughan, Ronseal Marketing Manager

2. Add colour with painted terracotta pots


 “A plain garden can be a boring garden – add splashes of bright colour with a coat of paint on your terracotta pots. It’s a quick and easy colourful update.” - Jenna Lowe, Ronseal Product Manager

3. Make a DIY trellis with branches


 “A trellis is a great way to add detail and design to your garden – make your own by collecting fallen branches and fastening them together with string, then leaning against a wall to encourage plants to grow upwards.” - Jenna Lowe, Ronseal Product Manager

4. Give your garden furniture a new lease of life


“Rather than spending money on a new set, refresh tired garden furniture with our Hardwood Garden Furniture Restorer. Use a stuff brush to remove any dirt or flaky paint, then coat your furniture with the Restorer, scrub with a bristle brush and leave for 15 minutes. Give it a final scrub then hose down to reveal a fresh, good-as-new look.” - Jenna Lowe, Ronseal Product Manager
