As June comes to a close, and the weather has improved a little, there is still time to tackle some of those outdoor tasks to enable you to enjoy a little bit more of your garden.
Our latest outdoor and garden projects include laying weed control fabric, building slab and brick steps and even how to make a beehive. By next summer you could be sitting on your new patio tucking into your own honey!
If your focus is on outdoor maintenance, then take a look at the projects on rendering external walls or fitting a weatherboard to your door.
We hope you have been able to take advantage of the recent project on building a barbecue - let’s just keep our fingers crossed for some sunny weather for the rest of the summer.
If there is anything that you are planning that isn’t covered in our project pages, then let us know! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions and we will endeavour to write it.

The DIY Doctor Team are now back in the office after another successful weekend at the Homebuilding and Renovating Show held at Sandown Park in Surrey.
As we have found at previous events, the seminars by DIY Doctor Mike Edwards on the Tricks of the Trade stage were very well attended. Mike spent some time answering questions from the audience and signing copies of his latest book ‘Master Basic DIY’ after each of his presentations.
The ‘How to Avoid Cowboy Builders’ was very popular on both days, and we have already received many requests for our Desired Outcome Contract. Click through here to get your copy.
Avoiding Cowboy Builders Seminar
We really enjoyed meeting so many of our users and hearing about the home improvements you have been tackling – do keep in touch and let us know how your projects went!
We would like to thank all the visitors for their comments and feedback during the show.
If you missed us this time, don’t worry! DIY Doctor will be at the National Home Improvement Show to be held at Earl’s Court at the end of September. More details will follow closer to the actual event so keep an eye on our blog and Newspages for more information.
DIY Doctor is passionate about driving out Cowboy Builders and by using our Desired Outcome Building Contract, you can be sure that you and your builder know exactly what is expected of each other throughout your building or renovation project.
We have produced two videos showing how well this contract worked for both the customer and the builder – both of whom were delighted with the whole process.
