Planning For Your Summer Home Projects with Edgesmith

Summer’s just around the corner, bringing with it the season for home projects and renovations. All those ideas and repairs you put off in the colder, wetter months can finally come into fruition, and at Edgesmith, we have the knowledge and the products to help you out. Fences and gates can add character to your home and make it look and feel much fresher, so strap on your tool belt and give your house a makeover in time for the New Year.

Here are three ways you can update your home this summer:

Replace Fences and Gates

Get rid of rusty gates or old wooden fences and upgrade to something stronger and better. Gone are the days when white paint would peel off fences and require touch-ups every weekend. Now, fences and gates come in different types of sturdy materials and can even be automated for extra security and convenience.

Swing gates and sliding gates are perfect for driveways, but if you’re focusing on your backyard, choose from our selection of fence panels designed specifically for landscaping. Replacing old gear is a quick, easy and affordable way to spruce up your home. You also have the option of getting your new fence or gate installed by an expert from Edgesmith, saving you the hassle.

Beautify the Garden with Landscaping

Summer is a gorgeous season, and if you have a garden, you’re one of the lucky ones! If your property isn’t fenced off already, add an aluminium or steel garden fence to create a border and define your garden. At Edgesmith, we have a smart range of architectural fence panels in both 1.0 and 1.2 meter heights which are suitable for most houses.

It’s a well-known fact that good landscaping raises the value of properties. Even if you’re not looking to sell your house now, it’s nice to maintain it and keep it looking its best so it doesn’t fall behind.

Add a Swimming Pool

Got kids? Don’t have kids? Who cares – get a pool! Everyone loves a good swimming pool, especially in the summer. It’s a great way to cool down, have fun and exercise. You can host BBQs and drinks around it, get a tan next to it or practice those backstrokes by doing some laps. Whatever your reason for adding a swimming pool to your home, New Zealand law states that all pools need a pool pedestrian gate around it.

Pool fences should be updated regularly, to ensure maximum safety. At Edgesmith, we have aluminium, hot-dip galvanised steel and hot-dip galvanised rigid wire fence panels for pools. They come in a range of sizes and include brackets and screws. A pool fence looks modern and clean.
