Invest in garden furniture when doing home improvements

06/08/2010 If you've got some money set aside to improve your home, don't forget to spruce up your outdoor space as well.

Writing for the Independent, Kate Watson-Smyth suggested that those with a budget of a few thousand pounds for home improvements should seriously consider using some of this to improve their garden.

However, if this sounds a bit drastic or too expensive, Ms Watson Smyth suggested investing in some quality garden accessories.

"Splash out on some good garden furniture. If you buy well, it should last for years," she advised.
