At HMS we’re gearing up for the first of the May bank holidays, and with this in mind, we’ve put together a small selection of ideas to improve the appearance of your property that you might want to try over the long weekend…

Paint your front door
Maybe try a different colour. Clean up the door knocker and post box, or maybe get some shiny new numbers or name sign! Small, low-cost changes like modern door furniture or a new outside light can make a real difference.

Weed your path or driveway
If you had a HMS resin surface this is one job you wouldn’t need to do! Our resin based paving products can be laid to various types of existing surface, so whether you have existing tarmac, gravel or concrete a resin based surface treatment could be a cost effective way of really making a dramatic improvement to your property.

With application guides and tutorial videos available on our website, you could save even further – up to 40% in fact, by carrying out your own easy installation compared to supply and fit prices. Or if you’d rather leave it to the experts, don’t hesitate to give us a call for super-competitive prices and top quality work, guaranteed.

Pressure wash patios and garden furniture
Decking and pavers can be transformed with a little effort, and resin bound and bonded paving systems require even less to stay looking fresh and smart all summer.

Surfaces can be swept to remove surface leaves and dirt, and if you’re feeling particularly enthusiastic, a quick once over with a domestic pressure washer on a fan setting can rejuvenate the appearance, along with maintaining the porosity of resin bound paving.

With no chemicals, annual staining or oiling or other complicated maintenance required, resin based surface treatments can make a massive difference not just to the appearance, but how you use your outside space.

Bring the inside out with new furnishings.
With a thousand ideas to choose from, Instagram, Amazon, homeware stores and garden centres to name a few, are bursting with stunning furniture and accessories to make best use of your outdoor space this summer. From corner sofas, outdoor lighting, fire pits and even full garden bar set-ups, there is something for all tastes.

Our resin bound paving makes for an excellent flooring option to accommodate your outside/inside creation with absolutely no loose stones, comfortable under bare feet and quick drying, all in countless colour and finish options.

Give your garden a makeover.
Add new pots and fill with perennials; add a colourful hanging basket; or even install a new resin path or patio from HMS! Did you know that being porous, resin bound paving can be used to fill the top of planters to give a smart contemporary finish, without compromising on water or airflow to the roots!

So with just a few ideas, your outdoor space could be dramatically transformed this long bank holiday weekend!
