Especially now the summer holidays are upon us (a teacher’s dream, a parent’s nightmare – I’m so torn!), it can be difficult entertaining your kids (their cousins, your neighbours’ kids and friends’ kids, plus whoever else you’re in a babysitting rota with!), and it never hurts to have a bit of inspiration.

I’ve known of the existence of Gulliver’s World since I was a kid as I’m from Warrington. I actually worked there as well – the job being kind of a rite of passage for any teens living in the Old Hall vicinity.

If you take a trip to the USA and walk through Beverly Hills, everyone has ‘perfect’ lawns. That beautiful Bermuda grass is so fine and lusciously green; you can’t help but wonder if secretly it’s just one big roll of finely-woven carpet. (more…)

A neatly trimmed and level hedge can completely transform any outdoor area. Hedges are very much like borders around a page, and to improve the space you will want a tidy hedge. It does not matter if you have a stunning garden complete with a water feature; if the hedges are unkempt, it will bring down the tone of the entire backyard.  It is clear then that your hedges must be maintained in order to keep an attractive outdoor area, but it can be difficult to create level and attractive hedges without the right knowledge.

One of the problems we have with winter is not just the cold, wet and miserable weather. It also means that most of your activities are indoors-related. It’s not as if you can bundle the kids, the dog, and all the accessories into the car and head off to a fun park somewhere. Nor can you organise an outdoors BBQ. Well, my friends in Australia can do that, even in winter. Have you noticed that there are very few, if any, charity type fundraising events in the middle of a UK winter? It makes sense of course.
