But what can you do to prepare your garden for the spring time?

Cut Back The Dead

Dead and dry foliage can be an unsightly and unsafe nuisance in a garden. By trimming back overgrown hedges, shrubs and trees; you will create space not only in your garden, but for the plant to grow come spring. Rejuvenation is often associated with spring so give your garden time and space.

Keep Off The Grass

Grass is not known for growing well in the colder months, which is why you should avoid walking on it whenever possible, especially when wet or damp. If you trample over your lawn, you risk damaging the grass plantings as they will not be able to grow back or repair themselves.

Get Weeds Early

Although not as prolific, weeds still grow in the winter months. So save yourself time and effort by eradicating them early. The last thing you want is bedding that is infested with weeds, so remove when the ground is soft to allow an effective removal.

With these tips, you can be sure to keep on top come the dawn of spring. For more information on our complete range of services, be sure to check out our website.
