Wiltshire – A pretty county located in the South-West of England, Wiltshire has a wealth of tourist attractions that make it a must visit place if you are in that part of the UK any time this coming year. The most famous of its attractions is of course Stonehenge, but don’t suppose this is all there is to Wiltshire, because you will find plenty more to astound and amaze in this delightful county. Be sure to visit Salisbury where you will find the fantastic cathedral and a great visitor centre, also have a look at Old Sarum. Don’t miss out on Wiltshire’s other historic towns such as Devizes, Malmesbury or Trowbridge, where you will find lots to see.

Repointing Brickwork

Filed under: Services,United Kingdom — Tags: , , — needahand @ 12:54 am

Repointing Brickwork – When weathering and rot have made your brickwork look untidy and unsafe, you might need to call on a bricklayer or repointing expert to put the job right and make your brickwork look like new. Make sure you get someone who knows what they are doing because it is not a job to be taken lightly, the mortar need to match the old mortar and the joints need to be profiled correctly to avoid future weathering.

Tree Surgery and Tree Care – Whilst you might think that you can prune and maintain your trees yourself, it often pays to get the advice of an expert tree surgeon or tree care specialist to make sure you are doing everything correctly. Better still get them to do it for you and then you can be sure that your trees have been trimmed properly and without causing any damage. This will also make sure that everything is carried out safely because this can be a dangerous task if you don’t know what you are doing.

Filed under: DIY,England,Gardens,Scotland — Tags: , — needahand @ 1:44 pm

Garden Decking – With the Spring fast approaching you might be thinking about getting some new decking installed in your garden. This is a great way to spruce up your outside space while giving you a nice spot to entertain guests or simply relax on those warm days. This might be a job you could tackle yourself if you are a confident do-it-yourselfer, though most people would probably choose to get in a proper deck builder, carpenter, garden expert or handyman, all should be capable of doing the job. Make sure you do all the correct preparation and know exactly what you are getting before you start.

Paving Driveways and Patios

Filed under: Services,United Kingdom — Tags: , , — needahand @ 10:51 am

Paving Driveways and Patios – A great way to improve the overall look of your property (the outside areas at least) is to put in a proper driveway in one of the many available materials. These days block paving is getting very popular and though you would think this is more expensive than concrete of asphalt, it is actually quite economical. That’s not to say that it is cheap, because installing a driveway is not something to be done lightly, though it is an investment and adds value to your home.

Flat Pack Furniture Assembly

Filed under: Services,United Kingdom — Tags: , , , — needahand @ 12:40 am

Flat Pack Furniture Assembly – I’m sure we have all had run-ins with flat pack furniture at some time or another, and I’m also sure that the experience was far from a pleasant one! It all looks so simple when you study the instruction sheet (and do you really check that all those bits are in the pack?) and then when you finally get started you find that you have glued the dowels in the wrong holes, fitted a shelf on back to front, or tried to do it on your own and the whole thing has collapsed through lack of support. Call in the flat pack assembly man, probably your local handyman, and he will help you work through this onerous task.
