Wood burner stoves are a great way of reducing your energy bills and using a renewable fuel. However, if you intend to open up your fireplace to install a stove, there are a number of points to consider.

For some, thinking about their garden can be stressful – conjuring up images of weeding, mowing the lawn and raking up leaves. Essentially, just one chore after another.

But for others, their garden conjures up images of soaking in a hot tub, sipping wine by the fire pit or listening to the gentle trickle of the water feature as they relax in a swing seat.

Let’s look at a few ways you can change the image of your garden and turn it into a haven for you.

You may think that if you don’t have a chimney in your home you can’t install a woodburning stove. But think again.

You can still enjoy woodburner stoves in rooms without chimneys as long as you install a flue pipe system and ensure you have adequate ventilation.

Here are just a few of the questions we get asked regularly when it comes to using hot tubs.

Do hot tubs help acne?

The steam from a hot tub can help to cleanse pores while the sloughing of dead skin cells and other epidermal impurities will promote healthy, glowing skin.
However, it’s important to make sure your skin doesn’t dry out by prolonged exposure to hot water. You should drink plenty of fluids to keep your skin hydrated when you spend any time in the hot tub.
