Home & Outdoor Living


It’s blue skies and sunshine in Darwin again, and that means it’s time to fire up the barbie and get your social calendar sorted.

As the southern states bunker down for the winter, we’re enjoying the great outdoors in beautiful weather one day, perfect the next.

But before you hit send on that group invite for a barbecue next weekend, have you thought about giving the backyard a little TLC?

Wet season can leave decks and walls looking a little tired, but it’s nothing a fresh coat of paint can’t fix.
What was a neatly manicured lawn a few months ago could now be more of a jungle, so you might want to get on top of that, before the snakes do.

The heat and humidity of wet season can take a toll on furniture too. Sure, there’s always an Esky to sit on, but now could be the time to treat yourself to a new outdoor setting.

Whether you’ve got a pool in the backyard, gardens, lawn, concrete, or even just a patch of dirt, a little bit of love can go a long way.

And if you’re feeling inspired by those home makeover shows, you could take it to the next level with a full backyard blitz.

Whatever level of TLC your backyard requires, you’ll find all the suppliers and services you need right here in Darwin. We’ve done the hard work for you by finding some of the very best.
You can hit send on that invite now, just tell them to get there early. (No need to mention the working bee.)
