The winter months are dark and cold, but your garden can still be beautiful. All you need to do is spend the time it takes for everything in your yard to stay healthy or alive!
You’re going to want to think about how you will look after your garden during the winter months but, luckily, it’s easy if all you have is a small space – it’ll be enough just make sure everything stays healthy and alive!
If not, try these tips:
Keep Your Garden Tidy
The one thing winter really brings down your garden is by it being untidy. Many people think they are not going be using their gardens during winter, and then use them for a place to dump all the things which you don’t want in your home during those months. You should treat your garden as if it were any other time of year and keep it looking gorgeous! Not only will this help reduce some of that messiness but also make sure there’s plenty of plants still alive (or at least doing well) come next springtime – we can do better than just letting dead leaves sit around here forever, right? Instead take five minutes each week or so to clean up what needs taking care off before things get worse…
Give It A Little Bit of Life
Give your garden a little bit of life this winter, and get some plants which really start to bloom in the winter months. As the majority of your summer/spring plants will start dying down during winter, you want something growing in your garden which will really show how much you care for your garden all year around. If you go down to your local garden centre, they will advise you on what plants are best for growing in winter conditions.
Look After Your Lawn
The lawn is the key to your garden looking healthy and beautiful all year around. Before winter really hits, you should use a pitch fork and stab holes all over the lawn. This will allow any heavy rain we have to drain into the garden lawn rather than water logging it. A waterlogged lawn will block your grass from growing and may cause your lawn to die. Lawn care experts also advise that you shouldn’t walk along your lawn when it is extremely cold or wet as this can also cause the lawn to die, this will make it look brown and patchy. Most people are unsure whether to mow their lawn during winter or to let it grow out, you shouldn’t really mow the lawn in cold and wet conditions as this can also kill your grass.
