Tips to get your outdoors ready for Christmas

If it’s your turn to host Christmas this year and you are yet to start planning for it, please don’t panic. There’s still time to get ready for the big day.


In this Blog, we look to inspire you with some ideas on how to ease the workload in the lead up to Christmas. We also provide some tips on creating the perfect outdoors space for entertaining.


Flat pack furniture assembly can be a frustrating and time consuming process.
Sometimes the instructions for Flat Pack furniture aren’t very clear and you can waste hours trying to interpret them. Why not let Hire A Hubby do the hard work for you?



Flat Pack Furniture


If you like to entertain your friends and family at Christmas, it’s important that your space includes plenty of seating options. If you’re dining outside, consider having comfortable areas for your guests. Having good quality (and comfortable) furniture is a must.


If you purchase new outdoor furniture which comes flat packed, Hire A Hubby can help you with the assembly.




Pressure washing done correctly, can bring your paving, paths, and hard surfaces back to life.

Clean Outdoor Furniture and Areas



First, remove furniture to make a clean and clutter-free space. Pressure wash the area to remove any dirt or debris. Don’t forget to clean down your furniture!




Protect and enhance the natural grain of your timber deck and outdoor timber furniture with the application of a quality decking oil.
There’s nothing quite like a beautiful wooden deck so protect it from the elements by oiling it a few times a year.


Oil that Deck


Have your deck cleaned and oiled before your guests arrive this Christmas. Decks require maintenance to keep them in good condition.


Hire A Hubby recommends oiling your deck once or twice a year to protect it from the elements year-round. We also recommend you have it done professionally by one of our Hubbies.

BBQ Area and Outdoor Kitchen



There are many advantages to having an outdoor BBQ or kitchen area built – especially if you like to entertain and spend quality time outside with the family.


An outdoor BBQ and Kitchen area will give you the freedom to cook without feeling overcrowded and will help keep the inside of your home clean and tidy.


If you already have a deck area built, consider utilising it with an outdoor constructed kitchen/grill. It can provide you with a lifetime of use and extends your living space to your home.


Our Hubbies can help construct a BBQ/ Kitchen area for you.

Privacy Screening



Does your garden space get overlooked by neighbours? There are ways you can improve privacy in your backyard setting. Planting bamboo (clumping bamboo), Lilly Pilly or even conifers can help create a natural screen from prying eyes. It also provides a lovely backdrop to your garden. For a more immediate effect, consider having a privacy screen built.


Privacy Screens are available off the shelf and come in various materials and sizes, made to suit the style of your house.
