3. Spruce up your garden with composite decking

If you’re looking to redesign your garden this summer, Ecodek’s capped composite decking range is the perfect addition. Available in bold, multi-tonal colours designed to give you a truly stylish and sustainable decking area, the product also comes with a 40-year warranty. The boards are made from wood polymer composite material, which means your deck will not splinter or crack, won’t need sanding or sealing and is easy to clean. Timber decking is more vulnerable to staining, fading, mould and mildew, whereas capped composite decking comes complete with a cover, designed to protect the board, that’s bonded to the core during manufacturing.

6. Stabilise your washing machine to stop vibration and movement

Steady Spin is a unique washing machine stabiliser invented in the UK in 2016 that works from the top of the machine, not the bottom. The anti-vibration pad will help to absorb energy, reduce noise and also ensure no movement for the entire wash cycle, saving your sanity and floors. It’s easy to install: simply slip the vinyl bladder between your machine and counter top and then inflate up to six inches with the manual pump for a snug fit. It’s made from double seamed vinyl, which makes it durable enough to withstand the most vigorous washes without puncturing. Forget about stabilising your washing machine with old-fashion mats and rubber feet as Steady Spin is designed to fit all washing machine models and tumble dryers.

7. Keep pests at bay with natural deterrent

Wherever possible, it’s important to minimise the use of chemicals to give our ecosystem and its wildlife a chance to thrive. Without harming pollinating insects, wildlife or even the pests themselves, Grazers’ products work to restore natural balance within gardens for our wildlife. As the flowers or vegetables grow, Grazers gives the photosynthesising plants the extra ability to dissuade pests from eating their leaves, thanks to its plant nutrient calcium formula, which is combined with a natural plant adjuvant. Grazers’ products are available in four types: to deter rabbits, deer and geese; slugs and snails; cabbage white butterfly, caterpillars and aphids; and the red lily beetle.
