Adding colour to your garden

Definitely time to start working in the garden – yes, yes, I now – some people never stop, but definitely time for ‘fair-weather gardeners’ like me to get started. I believe that the most important thing, especially if your garden is quite small is to get the structure in place. All sorts of materials can be used to create structure: wood, concrete stone. Texture is important and gravel, bark chips and pebbles can all be incorporated. However, one of the cleverest things you can do to really individualise your garden is to add a bit of colour.


Easily done: concrete can be painted, so can stone and wood seriously needs protecting, so why not consider a coloured wood stain?


Sikkens Cetol HLS Plus is an extensive collection of wood care products available from Kent Blaxill.


The durable, mould-resistant woodstain protects your timber against UV radiation and weathering. It is highly translucent to bring out the natural beauty of woodgrain, and protects against mould and algae. Microporous, water-repellent and resistant to UV radiation, peeling and cracking.


Available in an amazing range of colours, all mixed specially to order.


So request a colour chart or purchase a sample pot and let your imagination and your garden run riot!

    What a lovely idea. I’ve never considered including colour in the garden (other than through plants). It looks so inviting and fun – exactly what a garden should be!

    My garden is definitely feeling less than loved right now so you’ve inspired me to get my garden gloves out 🙂
