Ideas for the month
Tidying up your garden
There’s lots we can do to protect our gardens from incoming, colder weather.
Clear your flowerbeds
Use garden hand tools like secateurs, trowels and cultivators to help dig up weeds and deadhead any flowers. You’ll now have room for planting next year’s spring bulbs.
Tidy your lawn
Whilst the weather is still nice, use a lawnmower to give your grass a fresh cut. And neaten the edges with a grass trimmer or edging tool – it’s a simple way to make it look brand new.
Protect wooden structures
Before the bad weather strikes, give your wooden structures (fences, sheds and benches) a coat of wood stain or paint. This’ll give them time to soak it in before the rain arrives.
Invest in a water butt
This is a great way to recycle rain water. Attach the water butt to your guttering and use the water collected to water your plants. Avoid any stale smells by using it regularly.
Storage ideas for your garden
Create a cosy garden
September offers some warm and beautiful evenings. So, let’s make the most of them before summer ends.
Outdoor lights and heating
Use soft solar lighting to set the mood and frame your cosy corner. Pick a stylish chimenea or firepit as a focal point and settle in (well, out) for the night.
Garden home comforts
Dress your outdoor furniture with cushions, throws and outdoor rugs to create a snuggly seating spot. And remember those handy storage boxes to hide things away.
