So the summer's here and it's fair to say that throughout the UK we've enjoyed some great weather over the past few weeks, and this has enabled us all to do what we love; spend time outdoors in the sun. BBQs, picnics, outdoor sports, sitting reading in parks and lively beer gardens - we probably make the most of this weather because we experience it so rarely! And that's why it's so important to get your landscaping and exterior project correct; what's the point of having a perfectly planned and well thought out home, if the garden and space surrounding it doesn't work with you also? And I'm not just talking about the aesthetics of the garden, we also need to think about the flow from the home to the garden. This was a key consideration for Mark and Melanie when they were renovating their period home which included a dramatic re-styling of the entire ground floor space which, as Mark told Your Build magazine, involved: "extending and opening the back of the house up completely to create a spacious kitchen / living area that would effectively invite the garden into the house." You can read more about how they did this in our article on p.50.

In the summer issue we also talk to Malcolm Gough of Natural Paving Products about the latest trends in hard landscaping. As Malcolm tells Your Build on p.64, of all the materials to have become popular in recent times: "the latest and greatest is porcelain paving." Malcolm continued: "Many homeowners want to bring the outdoors indoors and vice versa, and porcelain is one of the few materials that has the versatility to work both outside and in, no matter the style."

Elsewhere in this issue we bring you articles on selecting the right roofing materials; heating options; bricks and bedroom furniture. Plus, we bring you updates on all the latest product launches and new materials that might help you on your project. So read on for all this and so much more. Don't forget to enter our great competitions on pages 11 and 22!

Enjoy the issue!
