How to take care of your garden in the winter months

During the winter months, it can be very easy to neglect your garden due to the cold and wet weather. It is understandable that the last thing you want to be doing is pruning hedges in the rain. However, getting your garden in top shape for spring will ensure that you will have a vibrant and inspiring garden when the sun finally decides to come out again.

Top Tips:

General Clearance – Even during the warmer months, we can all agree that removing fallen branches and twigs isn’t the most exciting thing to do in the garden. But, this simple act of cleaning can ensure that there are no damp issues for underlying plants due to sprouting in spring.

Fence Repairs – Natural deterioration and rotting of fences are common, especially if you have had them for over 5 years. By fixing or replacing the fences this time of year guarantees you will have a sturdy boundary to your property. Make sure to add a lick of wood preserver to enhance the life of your fences.

Weeding – One of the most tedious jobs but the most rewarding when you step back and take a look at the difference it has made. During winter, we are under the impression that everything that usually grows is frozen in time and won’t grow until we see the sun again: even though that is what it looks like on the surface, the truth is that most plants are dormant and are still living and breathing, yet there are some plants that grow whatever season, and in this case, they’re weeds.
