46 STYLE | landscaping REVIVE & REJUVENATE Craig Wilson shines the light on the dreary parts of our outdoor areas and suggests it’s time for a mini makeover.
STYLE | landscaping 47 As the season moves into the warmer summer months, life moves outdoors. On a still day, the French doors are open from dawn to dusk and the garden beckons us out to enjoy our open lawns or sit under our favourite tree. Have your garden spaces become a bit tired? It’s time to lift the look and increase your enjoyment of your time outside. Here are four tips to motivate a quick refresh at your place. 1. REPLACE ANYTHING DEAD OR STRUGGLING Cast your eyes over the area in which you spend the most time and see if there’s anything past its use-by date. Look for anything dead and twiggy that hasn’t come away in spring and replace it with a lush, fresh new specimen. Your local garden centre will have plenty of good choices that will see either flowers, foliage or both add a bit of ‘fizz’ to any corner of your property. Home air conditioning? Leave it to your smartpHone (Is there anything they can’t do?) With your Fujitsu e3 Heat Pump system linked by WiFi to the FGLair App on your smart phone or tablet, you have simple temperature control from anywhere, anytime. Simply Heat can show you how Fujitsu’s new and intelligent features add comfort, economy and health to your home – plus, simply, convenience.
