Winter is here and the long summer days sitting out in the garden are behind us for a few months now. At this time of the year, it is a good time to clear up our gardens and make sure that they are tidy, and ready for Spring.
The first thing to do is to sweep up any autumn leaves that have dropped on the garden. By now, most of the leaves will have fallen so it is a good time to clear them off your lawn. If you have an area that is paved, or concrete, give it a good wash down and pull up any weeds that may be growing through the cracks. This way, you won’t have such a big job on your hands in the Spring – you will be surprised at how quickly weeds can over run a garden!
Take in any garden furniture and kids play equipment that won’t be used over winter to protect it from the worst of the British weather. This will mean that your garden equipment will last much longer and remain in good condition. If you have a garage this is the ideal place to keep it over the winter. Companies like shelving Ireland based company Rackzone provide garage storage solutions so it can be kept neatly and out of the way.
This is also a great time to do any improvements that you want to do ready for the spring – a few bright autumn days are all you need to do jobs like painting the fence or the shed – a task that you can then tick off your list when you are busy planting in the Springtime.
