    Australia Day is fast approaching and if you're inviting a few friends and family over for a barbecue, you probably will want to have your yard looking spick and span for their arrival.

    Here are some fast tips on how you can get the outside of your home ready for summer entertaining.


    Return your deck to its former glory by giving it a spray with your waterblaster. Make sure to keep the spray moving, being careful not to leave it resting in a spot for too long or it may damage the surface.

    You can prevent discoloration and water damage by applying a wood preservative to the deck.

    Clear unruly tree branches

    If there are annoying branches hanging over your deck that constantly creates mess, then consider giving them the chop.

    These branches can also prove to be a bit of a menace during autumn, with leaves blocking up gutters and spouting.

    If the tree branches are quite high up, consider using a genie lift to get the job done.

    Kennards hires out a variety of cherry pickers, so head to your nearest branch to find the lift that is most appropriate for the job.
