Winter: The Perfect Time For A Garden Makeover
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 news provider suggests that you spent the wet and blustery days making your plans indoors. That could include drawing up a layout, researching the plants you’d like to grow, or even thinking about how you’ll accessorise the new part of your outdoor space.
On those sunny days, you can do things like clearing the ground, digging over new beds and generally preparing the soil for planting.
Don’t forget that this time of year, until mid-March, is also the best period in which to plant deciduous trees, roses, shrubs and hedges.
It seems that a garden makeover is a popular home improvement project, with research recently revealing that one-quarter of homeowners have chosen to spruce up their outdoor space in the past five years.
