If you are one of the many people who have moved house this year, getting the garden neat and tidy has probably not been high on your list of priorities. Understandably, you may have been focused on creating a liveable indoor space ready for the winter. However, a nice pleasant view out of the window can work wonders for your state of mind!
It is a good idea to tackle a neglected garden during the winter while some of the growth has died back. You don’t know exactly what kind of rainforest might be lurking for you in the spring! Here are some simple jobs you can get done now.
1. Collect up any unwanted junk
If there is fly-tipped rubbish, or discarded items from your house move lying around, collect them up ready for removal. Also think about old garden furniture, sheds, and other equipment that needs getting rid of. If you have a roomy vehicle, you could take them to the local recycling depot, or otherwise arrange for a clearance company to collect it.
2. Cut back overgrown hedges and trees
If you have the right tools, you can cut back the greenery yourself, or otherwise arrange for a gardening service to do the work. Once the messy overgrown hedges and trees are in shape, your garden will already be transformed and your stress levels will probably start to go down at this stage!
3. Clear away dead and unwanted plants
Start by tackling weeds and any plants that are obviously dead. If you are not an experienced gardener, check before pulling out anything you are not sure is really dead, or just going through seasonal changes. It is a shame to destroy mature plants, and you may be depriving yourself of some beautiful blooms in the spring and summertime.
