Although the summer has gone, and winter is now in full swing it doesn’t mean that you have to neglect your garden! Not only is being out of doors good for the body and the mind, but there is also plenty that you can get on with in your garden over the winter months. Here are a few creative and practical ideas that will get you out in the garden and get your garden looking great…
Look after the wildlife – The wildlife in your garden will be struggling at this time of the year. Set up a bird feeding table – you can either buy one or get some wood from somewhere like this timber merchants Southampton and make your own. Put out a variety of food and also water daily and watch the birds flock to your garden.
Jazz up your garden furniture – Now is the ideal time to give your garden furniture a makeover. You won’t want to sit on it at the moment, so it is good to get it looking fresh for next year. Give it a good clean and change the colour with some wood paint that is suitable for outdoor use. You could even match your shed and fence to the same colour.
Get Planting – Many people don’t realise that you can have a beautiful garden display no matter what the season – choose plants that are perfect for the winter months, such as winter pansies and add a festive touch with some holly bushes.
