Winter Gardening Tips

The Winter months can take their toll on your home and your garden is no exception! The thoughts of those Summer BBQ’s are buried under overgrown grass and piles of leaves. We thought we would try and rescue those summer thoughts and by giving you some tips on how to look after your garden in the Winter.

Compost – Winter can be a great start to your compost heap. Starting a compost heap also provides you with a great place to store all that winter garden waste such as excess leaves.

Tidy up the leaves – Leaves can get everywhere during the winter months. Clearing these little buggers up every now and again is a great way to stay on top of things. Although you are supposed to stay off the grass, exceptions can be made for tasks that will help your garden

No go zone – When the sun comes out to play, you want to make sure your garden is ready to use. Keeping off the grass during the winter months is important to help prevent lasting damage. Keeping off the grass helps to prevent leaving damaging trails and muddy patches

Off with their head – Make sure to dead head flowers from the autumn and prune those summer flowering shrubs.

Planning – This may not be a tip for Winter but… you can spend the winter months whilst you’re not in the garden planning things to do in your garden when it gets a bit warmer. Source the correct materials and be ready to hit the ground running.

Fix up look sharp – Similar to our previous tip, Winter can be a great time to organise your shed and garden tools. Use the time to clean all your tools, store them correctly and see what you need or need to upgrade.

Check One Two – Winter can be full of very strong winds that can have a big impact on the structural integrity of your garden. Be sure to check fence panels, sheds and gates for any signs of damage. Spotting damage can help to prevent total destruction as bad weather continues.
