Bank holiday weekends are the perfect chance to get in the garden and tackle all of those niggling jobs you’ve been meaning to get finished. The easy-to-use DIY products from U-CAN make sprucing up your patch easier than ever before, so with the weather looking bright and a little extra time on your hands, get ready to get green-fingered.
Repair wobbly slabs
Whether it’s a loose garden path or a wobbly stone on your feature patio, uneven slabs can be unsightly and unsafe. The Paving Slab Fixing Mortar, £8.93 from U-CAN offers a quick and easy solution. Each tub contains two sachets of pre-blended mortar, giving you control over how much you use. Just add water and follow the simple instructions to secure your slab and make the garden a safe place for everyone to enjoy.
Make decking less slippery
Decking can be a great way to modernise an outdoor area and creates the perfect environment for alfresco dining. However, if left untreated, wet weather can encourage the growth of algae and mould making the surface slippery and encouraging the wood to gradually rot away. The Slip- Resistant Decking Sealer from U-CAN uses micro-traction technology to provide a waterproof but transparent seal – making the surface safe underfoot whilst preserving its quality.
The typical British mix of intense showers followed by bursts of sunlight can cause weeds to quickly get out of control. U-CAN Weed Free Block Paving Sand is easy to sweep into freshly paved or pressure-washed areas to suppress weed growth or to refresh and maintain an old pathway or patio.
Weeds love to grow in the large gaps between your slabs. U-CAN Wide Joint Patio Grout neatly fills the joints with a hard setting and mess-free material, making it difficult for weeds and moss to break through. It also makes the area more watertight, preventing future damage from rain which can cause the slabs to lift and become wobbly.
U-CAN products come in an easy-to-handle tub, are ready-mixed or can be quickly mixed-in-the bag with the addition of water to reduce waste and mess. Selected U-CAN products are exclusively available at B&Q.
