Just like our lives and our office or home, our garden needs a spring clean at this time of year. We have developed a checklist for you to ensure you get the most from your garden over the warmer months. In preparation for summer, mulch the whole garden to insulate it against the heat. Remove all weeds and encroaching grass first and ensure your mulch is 5cm thick. Use slow-release fertiliser...

Never before have our lives been busier.

We also have more stuff than ever before. Children’s toys, electrical gadgets and the constant day to day belongings that we accumulate, mean that our homes are becoming more and more cluttered and we are becoming more and more...

Like Attracts Like in the Kitchen

People resonate to people they relate to. I like to implement this theory when organizing kitchens. There has to be a system for your kitchen space to run smoothly and be functional. It is no use having your coffee & tea mugs across the other side of your kitchen from your kettle. Store them in the cupboard directly above or below your kettle. See…like attracts like!! Arrange your kitchenware by frequency...
