CONSUMER spending across DIY and garden stores has soared along with the temperatures.

Hardware Association Ireland (HAI) said retailers have seen a marked increase in the sales of typical summer season products like decking, construction timber, paving and decorative stone.

HAI's Jim Copeland said hardware businesses are reporting a significant improvement in footfall and an upsurge in sales during June.
