It’s Winter: What Can You Do In Your Garden?
With the arrival of colder weather you could be forgiven for thinking that you can leave your garden to its own devices for the next few months. In fact, that’s what 52 per cent of Brits do at this time of year, Property Reporter recently revealed, citing a survey by Tiger Sheds.
Many of us are guilty of letting our gardens become overgrown when life gets too busy to sort them out, but one couple must have really allowed their outdoor spaces to get out of control as they have been fined after neighbours complained to the local authority.
If you’re a keen gardener, chances are that you’ll have spent much of the summer keeping your outdoor space in order. From clipping and mowing to watering and weeding, there always seems to be something to do in the garden.
The summer is always a busy time for homeowners wanting to improve their gardens, and recent statistics have shown that just under a quarter landscaped their outdoor space in the three months leading to September.
Green-fingered Brits might have to attend to their plants even more this week, after warnings have been issued about unusually warm weather.
If you’re looking around and seeing bushes and trees weighed down by their autumn fruits at the moment you certainly aren’t alone. That might be inspiring you to plant a fruiting tree or two in your own garden, but where do you start?
Having a picturesque garden is incredibly important to homeowners, with many believing it says something about themselves if they have a well-kept lawn with pretty borders.
Now that the summer months have left us behind and we’re well into autumn, it’s time for you all to start thinking about lawn care and how you can make sure that your garden copes with whatever weather the next few months have in store for us.
One bit of your garden that can be easily forgotten but that certainly needs some care and attention is your soil.
Landscaping in a small space can be a challenge. What you want to achieve is the illusion of space, while making your garden a lovely place to spend time in.
