Autumn Garden Preparations: Ready Your Outdoor Space for Winter
7th September 2023
Autumn is more than just the season of golden hues, pumpkin-spiced everything, and cozy sweater vibes. It’s the herald of colder days ahead, prompting us to prep our gardens for winter. And while you may be basking in the beauty of the falling leaves, there’s some serious garden prep work to be done. Don’t worry, we’re here to help guide you through!
1. Tidy Up the Garden
Before anything else, give your garden a good clean. Remove dead plants, rake up leaves, and compost them if possible. Not only does this keep your garden looking neat, but it also reduces hiding spots for garden pests.
2. Protecting Plants and Soil
Mulch is an autumn garden’s best friend. It protects soil from winter cold and prevents weeds. Layer organic mulch around your beds. If you have perennials that are sensitive to cold, consider getting them frost covers.
3. Winterizing Garden Tools
Your tools have worked hard all spring and summer, and they need some TLC. Clean, sharpen, and oil them before storing them away. This ensures they’re rust-free and ready for spring gardening. Also, drain and store garden hoses and turn off external water supplies. We can provide a whole range of storage solutions here at Truro Portable Buildings Ltd.
4. Storing Garden Furniture
Those lovely garden furniture pieces need protection too. Clean them and store them in a dry place. If you lack storage space, consider a hand crafted timber building which will last for yeasrs to come.
5. The Perfect Garden Storage Solutions
Whether it’s tools, furniture, or even that bulky lawnmower, you’ll need adequate storage. At Truro Portable Buildings Ltd., we understand your garden storage needs and offer a range of solutions tailored to them.
