As the summer months start to come to an end, there is still a lot to do in the garden to keep it looking its best. Keeping on top of things will ensure that your garden is ready for the winter months and can take all the weather has to throw at it!
By now you may have a few plants that have gone over, so now is the time to start to clear them away. There are a lot of plants that you can put in their place to add a splash of autumn and winter colour so don’t worry about the garden looking drab – order from home from somewhere like this Online Garden Centre Kent https://www.simplygogardening.co.uk and you can breathe new life into pots and borders.
Now is the time that leaves will soon start to fall if they haven’t started already, so keep a rake handy to do regular clear ups of any leaves that have fallen into your garden! You can also use the dead leaves in a compost bin, so that by next year you will have turned that garden rubbish into nourishment for new plants.
If there is any damage in the garden especially to things like sheds and fencing, now is the time to get it repaired. Doing this before winter kicks in will help to prevent problems like fences blown down by winter gales, or water getting into the shed through a leaky roof and damaging the contents.
