Here comes the sun
Overgrown, a little bare or a bit more brown than green? Your lawn will need some extra care during the summer and we've got the mowers to help.
Give your plants some extra attention. With watering cans, hosepipes and garden sprinklers, it's easy to keep your garden hydrated.
The obvious signs of Autumn are leaves and branches falling on your lawn. That won't just make it look untidy, it blocks your lawn from sunlight. And during the winter months, your grass needs all the light it can get!
A leaf vac or blower is a fast, easy way to gather debris. And a good old garden rake is great for gathering the bits together.
Survive the frost
For those colder months, greenhouses are ideal for providing warmth and shelter. If you don't have room for a greenhouse, then a coldframe will be just as good.
Try to raise your plants. It's a quick and easy way to help protect them and your soil from frost damage.
With regular pruning and a little TLC, you'll have your garden flourishing in no time.
Deheading and removing damaged flowers will help your garden recover, encouraging more buds to blossom. And it's never too early to tackle those weeds! A few quick tricks can save you time later on.
Barbecues, garden furniture, garden tools - they can all get damaged in wet, cold or windy weather. A shed is the obvious place to tidy these items away for safe keeping. Sheds come in a variety of sizes and different materials including wood, metal or plastic.
…or garden storage
Sheds can only hold so much. Once you add some garden furniture and your lawnmower, there may not be much room left.
A variety of garden storage is available to give you extra space. You can also find designs created especially for storing bikes or tools.
Protect your furniture
If you're keeping your garden furniture outdoors during the cold months, make sure you use a furniture cover.
It's not just about keeping it dry. Moisture can freeze, causing damage, and it will encourage moss to grow.
