Pimp my Yard

Are you using your yard for professional use? Just because it’s professional doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun and pimp your yard! We don’t mean you need to go crazy. A good yard, for builders, or other purposes needs to be functional, safe and professional.


Organise it

A working yard is a busy place, often filled with an array of items. If you let it get out of control, the smallest tasks will take twice as long.

Make use of signage and labelling, we don’t want to sound like your mum, but be sure everything has its own place. This way it’s harder for things to go missing. Pimping your yard doesn’t have to be extravagant. Just start to consider what you need and what you will need to accommodate. Think about everything down to deliveries and building materials that may be laying around.

Safety mark it


You should never skip safety! Even if you work alone, in a private yard, or in small team, include as many safety measures in your yard as possible. Using a safety measure such as line marking paint, can help you and any visitors to your yard to identify different areas. This is particularly useful for marking any off-limits or hazardous areas.

Customise it


If your yard is constantly occupied, consider customising it. When you work somewhere every day, the small details can make a huge difference. The personalisation of your yard  could be as simple as sticking to a certain colour scheme or theme. Why not impress visitors and workers with exterior paint that’s a little out of the ordinary? You could go further and use creative paintwork to make your yard more unique and exciting.

Waterproof it


Working yards are likely to have many important areas outside. When you’re open to the elements, you need to consider waterproofing protection. If you’ve put the effort in to rejuvenate your yard, it’s a shame to leave it to become eroded by water damage.

Protect your yard by using a colourless, water repellent treatment on porous exterior walls and surfaces. Rust-Oleum Mathys Secco Super stops surfaces taking in water by creating a protective colourless film that leaves the treated surface looking uncoated or changed in any way. Keeping water from penetrating surfaces is beneficial for a number of reasons so start protecting your property today!

Ask about it

If you’re not the only one working in your yard, it’s worth asking around for ideas. Give colleagues a chance to make suggestions – they may have ideas you’ve not thought of yet! If you have a lot of space to play with, don’t be afraid to try new ideas.
