Project of the month

Believe it or not, spring is just around the corner so it's the perfect time to give your garden some tender loving care. The garden is used by everyone, so get the family involved to help revamp and declutter, freshening up your home's outdoor area.

Want to grow your own this year?

If you want an ongoing project for the year, why not think about growing your own veg. February is the month to start by sowing lettuce, potato and pea seeds for an early summer harvest.


Tidy up and deck up

A good tidy up, such as removing weeds and old shrubbery can do the world of wonders to the garden.

Decking can make your outside space look smarter and neater, and is easier to care for. Plus, you'll get a new space for dining al fresco in the summer months, or even for the kids to play on.

Add some instant colour now

Though it's still winter, create some outdoor intereset by adding colourful plants such as a Phormium grass 'Cream Delight' in a patio pot.

Show your lawn some love 

Always start with the basics and give your garden lawn a once-over this month. Take care not to walk over borders or on the lawn where spring bulbs and flowers will be growing. Repair the lawn with one of B&Q's many kits, such as the Evergreen Lawn repair kit, which is only £9.98.

Primp your patio

Clean off accumulated dirt by pressure washing your garden paths, steps, paving and patios. B&Q has a large range of pressure washers to select, starting from £39.99.
