Spruce up your garden this summer

Wednesday 24 July 2019, by

When the sun’s out, there is nothing better than having a good chill out in your garden. Whether it’s a BBQ with your neighbours or a spot of Sunday gardening that you fancy – Gumtree’s got the kit you need, for a fraction of the price.

The best part is, you needn’t look any further than just up your street. Here are some of our favourite finds in your gardens this summer:

Sam found herself some rattan furniture plus some vintage buckets to freshen up her garden from just around the corner. Bethany snapped up some paving stones to smarten up her new garden. Abbi bought 76 terracotta plant pots for her patio from a lovely man named Roger andWill managed to bag himself a 6 foot ‘Silver Surprise’ tree for free for his Allotment.

What another absolutely glorious day! I’m currently standing in a massive queue trying to get into #wimbledon2019 but earlier today I was doing some work for an exciting collaboration I’ve got coming up. I’ve not done loads of collabs (possibly due to a lack of confidence or maybe that creeping feeling of imposter syndrome!) but this particular opportunity fells like it fits really well and I’m so chuffed to have been chosen. There’s been lots of chat on insta about the pros and cons of “collabs”’and “content creation” or “influencing” over the last few weeks and I’m firmly in the camp that if it feels authentic then why not. I know not everyone agrees but I really think it’s important to support people in their choices and to be kind to everyone even to those we only “know” on here and not in real life. What do you think? Are you for “influencing” (that’s a pretty dreadful term isn’t it!) or is it the work of the devil? Would you take up the opportunity to do a collaboration if you could or are you dead against it? I’m really interested to know what you think (but please be gentle!). #bekind #contentcreator #exteriorstyling #exteriorstyle #fafffriday #gardenlife #gardenreno #gardendesign #reclaimedwood #upcyclyed #sustainablestyle #vintagegardenstyle #vintagestyling #vintageladder #hydrangea #ForYourGreatOutdoors #naturehacks #gardenideas #gardenlife #outsideinside #hippietribe #vintagestyling #summergarden #mygardenmakesmehappy #mygarden #growwithyourgarden #modernrusticgarden #gotitongumtree #summer2019
