At this time of the year it is a good idea to spend some time in your garden making sure that it is prepared for the coming winter months. Wild winds and torrential rain, not to mention snow and ice that winter brings with it can wreak havoc on a garden that isn’t prepared for it. It is also good to get things ready for next spring and there are things that you can do now that will save you time and money next year…
Repair Jobs – If there is any damage to things in the garden such as fences, greenhouses or shed, the winter will probably make this worse, so it is important that you repair it now. If you are not sure how to do this, get someone like this Handyman Hereford based company oddjoboctopus.co.uk/ in to do it for you.
Plant Bulbs – Autumn is the time to plant spring bulbs for a beautiful display in spring. Fill containers and borders with daffodils, allium, tulips and bluebells to ensure a good display of colour from early March.
Upgrade Garden Furniture – Garden furniture that is still in good condition should be kept indoors somewhere like a shed or garage in the winter to protect it from the bad weather. If yours has had its day, then you could give it a new lease of life by painting it, or if you want to replace it now is the time as there are good sales on garden furniture at this time of the year.
