SIZZLING TIPS

Homes+ (Australia) - - MY BACKYARD -

Solid fuel and wood-burn­ing fire pits and chimineas will spit sparks, so en­sure they’re on a level sur­face and keep the area free of de­bris. Brick, stone and gravel are best.

Add lit­tle pack­ets of sil­ica to your out­door blan­ket stor­age boxes to keep things ex­tra dry, and to pre­vent odours and mould de­vel­op­ing.

For af­ford­able out­door blinds, check out Bun­nings’ range, which in­cludes bam­boo. Damp, chilly ground is a buzz kill, but a rug or click-to­gether deck­ing pieces will make a big dif­fer­ence for min­i­mal out­lay.
