Quick – sound the sun alert! Ok, you don’t need a survival guide (or do we in Ireland) but we’re sure you could do with some ideas to make the most of the week by planning ahead. Met Eireann are predicting a warm, dry week with temperatures going up to 21 with the whole country being warmy and sunny by Thursday. The warmest day is expected to be Friday and the weekend outlook will be dry and warm in the high teens.
Build a checklist of all of the essentials you’ll need come Friday evening, and make sure everything is in good working order after the winter!
Outdoor and seating areas
- Yard Brush
- Patio Cleaner
- Weed Killer
- Exterior paint
- Decking oil
- Wood furniture oil
- Check and clean your outdoor furniture
- or take a look at our 6 piece 4-seater Courtyard set with table and Umbrella for just €129
- And if, like mine, the BBQ didn’t survive – our Landman 2-burner gas BBQ is just €79.99
- This lovely Redwood picnic bench is just €119.00!
Things for the Garden
- Multi-Purpose Compost
- Roundup Weedkiller
- Exterior Paint
- Decking Oil
- Timber fence paint
- Furniture Oil
Other must haves to stock up on
- Outdoor lights and candles
- New seat cushions
- Outdoor lighting
Now once you’ve got your checklist done, plan your time well. Make sure that you get any of those outside repair jobs out of the way early in the week if you can. This will leave you lots of free time at the weekend for barbecuing, trips to the beach or just relaxing on your patio as the sun sets. Under a patio-heater of course, we don’t want you to catch a chill.
Have a great week and don’t forget to tell us what you did!
