About Roofing's Must-Have Garden Essentials This Summer

Must-Have Garden Essentials This Summer

With the warmer weather now upon us and with many spending more time in their homes than ever before, now is the ideal time to look to the garden and see how we can make our outdoor spaces smarter, more versatile, and more enjoyable places to be.

About Roofing supplies an extensive range of top quality garden products to help turn your garden into a fantastic space that the whole family can enjoy. Our range includes decorative aggregates, building aggregates, and premium topsoils to ensure that your garden flourishes.

Here are some of our must have Garden Essentials

Fire essentials

While it may be warming up during the day, the evenings continue to remain a little chilly. However, there is nothing sweeter than dining alfresco and relaxing in your garden long into the evening. That’s where fire pits and chimineas can make all the difference. At About Roofing, we supply a wide range of fuels and lighting aids to ensure that when you do need some extra warmth, your fire won’t let you down.

Our Smokeless Coal, for example, is an excellent alternative to other fuel and produces up to 80% less smoke and 25% less CO2 than house coal. While still generating lots of heat, smokeless coal also leaves behind very little ash, making it much easier to clean up after too. It’s also the ideal fuel to use in places such as London, which are smoke-free zones and areas where the Clean Air Act is in force.

We also stock top-quality firelighters and kindling bags to get that fire going, or why not try out our Lignite briquettes that are so easy to light, produce minimal ash, are damp resistant, and burn longer and hotter than traditional peat?

Sandpit and play bark

Playbark from About Roofing Supplies

We know how important it is to keep the kids entertained while outside, so why not give yourself a garden project this summer that everyone can get on board with? We stock Playpit Sand, which is ideal for children to play in. This sand is an inert, non-staining, non-allergic clean sand that’s extremely fine, making it suitable for little ones and could provide hours of entertainment while you can kick back and relax with a much deserved cold drink! Or why not recreate the playground feel in your backyard with our Playbark which provides a soft landing base for lots of play equipment and looks and smells great too.

Gutter guard brush

Hedgehog Gutter Guard Brush available from About Roofing Supplies

While perhaps not the most glamorous of jobs, summer is a great time to get those practical chores ticked off your list. Clogged gutters can affect your drainage system, which can lead to water pooling and eventually cause leaks into your home as well as damage the gutters themselves. An effective gutter system is essential. Regular gutter maintenance can be time-consuming, and calling out a professional to do the work for you can be expensive. By installing our Hedgehog Gutter Guard Brush, you will protect your gutters from incoming debris such as twigs and leaves and can also be used to prevent clogging of garden drains.

Decking maintenance

If you have decking in your garden, keeping it in good condition will not only improve the aesthetic of your outside space but will also mean that it lasts for longer. Our Cromar Decking Sealer provides excellent protection for your home decking, keeping it robust and durable, even when subject to those British summer downpours! This unique formula offers an effective water-resistant barrier that will keep your timber decking in fantastic condition, preventing it from splitting or cracking, which can happen when too much water is absorbed. These must-have garden essentials will keep you busy all summer long!
