As the last of the summer flowers fade from the garden, this becomes a time to start tidying up and preparing the garden for the winter months that lie ahead. Getting jobs done in the garden now means that you can prepare for the spring and make sure that your garden is protected from the elements over the winter months.
Firstly, think about the plants that you have in the garden. Many of them may not be able to tolerate colder conditions, so they need to be protected in pots in the greenhouse or you can use a cover to keep them safe from the chill. If you have trees and shrubs as well as roses, once they are out of their growth phase you can cut them back to keep them tidy and healthy.
You also need to make sure that your garden can stand up to bad weather – check things like your fence for example – if it is showing signs of weakness or rot has set in, now is the best time to get in touch with someone like this fencing Loughborough based company, Direct Fencing, who will be able to replace it for you.
If you have a lawn, you should take the time to clear any fallen leaves off of it, as they prevent nutrients getting to your lawn and this also keeps it looking good. A good quality rake is the best way to do this.
