Enjoy The Garden Party Fun

Enjoy The Garden Party Fun

We are on a great gardening theme this week.

Although it's time well spent working in your garden it is also great to have get togethers and garden parties with friends and family as often as possible.
With Summer now in full flow, even if the British weather is a little on the cooler side this year, it is still time to make the most of these warmer days.
Getting outdoors as much as possible is good for the soul and it's always those little touches that make a difference to your outdoor space.
We are in the garden sign
Whether its a great garden sign, a boot pull or a drinks carrier to make sure you are well refreshed at all times.
We love the wall mounted bottle openers that are so cleverly placed on the side of these wooden beer bottle carriers, the ideal holder to retreat into your man cave with a few mates at the end of the day.
There are so many great additions to make sure your place is fun and enjoyable to be in at the same time.
This vintage wall mounted bottle opener can just as easily be fixed to an outside wall as it can onto a wooden table or work surface in the shed or garage. It is the one thing you need for garden parties and barbecues as it saves you constantly searching for the bottle opener.
Cast Iron Bottle Openers
If you like to keep a bottle opener on your person at all times then the vintage hand held bottle opener can be easily clipped onto your key ring so that you are never without this handy tool.
If you like to keep areas of your garden private then this cast private sign is perfect for smaller gates or doorways.
If you are worried about guests falling down a hidden step or banging their head on a low beam or doorway then the 'mind the step' or 'mind your head' are the signs to display near to the danger zone.
If you are lucky enough to have your own pool and are thinking of having a pool party this summer then this handy solid cast, 'please shower before using the pool' sign is hard wearing and pretty at the same time.
If you like to bring a little humour to your events then this 'On this site in 1785 Nothing Happened' sign is sure to get a laugh or two. Or maybe a 'Dog House' sign is more your sense of humour.
If you need space near to your home for yourself or party guests to park then there are a number of 'No Parking' sign choices to display nearby or in your private driveway.
Whatever you are doing we're sure these additions will make all the difference to your summer events.

How To Get Visitors To Shut Your Gate

How To Get Visitors To Shut Your Gate

How annoying is it when visitors leave your gate swinging wide open?

Not only do you run the risk of the gate swinging off its hinges but any animals that are loose in your garden or could be let out without realising that they can escape prove a real hazard, either to themselves or others. 

We're sure that is you have a gate that is used by visitors to your home that you have problems caused by having it left wide open without a thought for the consequences.

That is why we have created a series of gate signs to suit the needs of homeowners who care about their property and their pets.

If you have a large gate such as a farm gate or driveway gate then you may need a larger Shut This Gate sign to make sure people who pass by either on foot or in cars will take the time to stop and close your gate behind them.

A clear shut this gate sign is the best choice where larger gates are concerned, made from solid aluminium with raised hand painted lettering it will last for years to come.

Private Sign

Maybe your property is private and you want to keep visitors out altogether or you would like to send a message to let travellers know that there is no right of way through your land. Either way a sign placed on your gate could deter unwanted intruders.

If you have a dog which is running loose in your garden then there are a few choices when it comes to gate signs.

You could have a dog loose, please close the gate sign or a loose dog, do not open gate sign to stop them before entering your property.

There are smaller gate signs for smaller front gates such as this quaint oval sign which comes in cast brass or hand painted aluminium saying either please close this gate or please use other gate if you have an alternative gate you would prefer used instead.

Please Use Other Gate Sign

If you have a busy road outside your garden gate you may want to warn visitors on leaving to beware of the road or you may just want to warm visitors of dogs running free in your grounds without mentioning the gate.

Whatever your circumstances we are sure you will enjoy looking through the many gate signs on offer to help keep you, your visitors and your animals safe and happy this year.
