Do it yourself to prepare for scorching summer


The jury is out and according to meteorologists and other climate experts, residents of the city can expect an especially hot and dry summer this year.
While the warm weather will be very welcome during the long December school holidays, the lack of rain and the relief that it brings is not good news.
Forewarned is forearmed and the best time to make the necessary changes to houses, gardens, entertainment areas and office buildings is now, while temperatures are still bearable.
Several businesses and outlets in Polo­kwane offer discerning DIY connoisseurs all they need to transform a drab area space into a sizzling living space.
