QUICK FIX Pot plants are a great way to add texture and colour to a courtyard. Use anything you fancy. Look in the kitchen for inspiration -- old pots and pans and cast-off colanders make great holders. Plant perennials in used gutters or old watering cans for stunning displays. Rusty metal roller doors can be fixed with new products such as Hammerite, a self-priming metal paint. Simply apply it straight over rust. Only flaking rust needs to be brushed off before application. Use to rejuvenate garden furniture, gates, railings, mail boxes and trailers. Add colourful shades, umbrellas, awnings and pergolas to your deck for shelter from the midday sun. Flowering creepers are a great way to bring colour and charm to a bare wall, arch or fence.

CREATE A SUMMER HAVEN TIME TO TRIM AND FILL GAPS Janita Singh OUTDOOR LIVING Time to prepare your garden for entertaining. IT'S the season for outdoor living -- spending longer days in the back yard with loved ones. So now's the time to step outside and tackle all those odd jobs to make your home and surround- ings a welcome setting for alfresco entertaining. For starters, any home owner with a swimming pool should begin their summer project. Pool expert company Swimart advised to clean and check pumps, filters and accessories, paying close attention to the filtration system. Your garden gives the first signs of good times ahead. Clean and trim and fill with seasonal flowers and vegetables. Add even more colour by painting a feature garden wall. Alternatively, hang a garden artwork or mirror. Attract birds to gardens by refreshing and refilling bird feeders or water baths. Turn what might otherwise be a blank and boring garden wall into a dynamic space with a vertical garden. ''Growing up can make drab, unattractive walls come alive with beauty and style,'' says Bunnings national garden decor buyer Cameron Rae. ''It's a hot trend, especially in inner city small spaces.'' Decorate gardens in beautiful moss. Use moss graffiti to adorn a wall or add some wall climbers. Finally, clean and oil decks and update patios. Planting mondo grass in between pavers is the perfect finishing touch.
