As the weather changes and autumn becomes winter, we likely don’t want to spend a lot of time sitting out in the garden now! This makes it a great time of the year to do all the jobs that are needed to keep your garden looking good when next spring and summer arrive – here are a few garden jobs that you can do over the winter months…
Plant Bulbs – From autumn up until December there are many types of bulbs that you can plant which will look great next year. From the early bloomers like iris, snowdrops and crocus, to those that herald the arrival of the spring like daffodils and the early summer bulbs like alliums. Getting the bulbs in the ground now is a quick and easy job, and there are tools that you can get to make it easier.
Make Repairs – Make sure that your garden can take the worst of what winter has to throw at it. Get a professional like this fencing Cheltenham based company www.greenfieldsltd.co.uk/services/fencing to put in new fences if there is damage and make sure that outdoor structures like sheds are in a good state.
Tidy Up – The autumn can leave the garden looking a bit of a mess. Now is the time to clean up all of those fallen leaves, wash down garden furniture and put it away for the winter, and do the weeding and the mowing before winter arrives properly.
