With this then you’ll also need to get hold of the right tools for different jobs, so if you’re not sure what this involves in this post we’ve detailed a few examples for you below. These are also conveniently matched up to the common household jobs you may well carry out during this time.

About the house there’s a multitude of things you can be doing, but general handiwork will cover jobs like putting up shelves, building furniture, replacing fixtures and fittings, as well as DIY. This means hand tools like drills, screwdrivers, hammers, sanders, planers and even all-purpose multi-tools. All of which being popular items to find in a domestic toolbox. If you don’t have any tools yet take a look at the SGS Engineering website.

Your garden is another area where there’s lots to be done. From cutting the grass, to pruning hedges, digging out weeds and bedding plants, your tools are again very important. What’s more you’ll also want to ensure a nice even finish to your yard for enjoying during the summer as well. So, what you’ll need is a hedge trimmer, lawn mower, chainsaw and strimmer for the bigger trimming tasks. The smaller jobs will require a spade, trowel, wheelbarrow and a tough pair of shears.

For major repair work to your walls and building masonry you should use the services of a professional. However if it’s just touching up jobs, or painting, or even just hanging or fitting ornamental features, these are tasks you can do yourself with the following tools: a powerful drill driver or hammer drill, a chisel and an extendable but sturdy set of ladders.

It might be that you have some of these tools already but they’re old or damaged. If this is the case, it’s worth investing in newer versions from an established seller. These will not only offer better performance, they will be safer, more reliable and overall help you get your tasks done much quicker.

So, tool up now and get prepped for a productive summer that sees you transform your home into the residence you want it to be.
