Winter is coming, and days in the garden are a distant memory – but just because you don’t use your garden in the winter, there are still some jobs that you should do to keep it looking it’s best throughout winter and to prevent any damage to plants and structures.
The harsh winter weather can cause all sorts of problems for outdoor structures like fences and sheds, as well as kid’s outdoor toys and garden furniture. When it comes to toys and furniture, move them to an indoor location such as a garage – this shelving Ireland based company https://www.rackzone.ie/ has a lot of garage shelving and storage options so you can keep items in over the winter in a clutter free area.
When it comes to fencing, check it all over for any sign or rot or weak areas that could be damaged by high winter winds – if you spot it now you can replace an individual panel rather than the whole fence so could save yourself a lot of money. It might also be a good idea to cover fences in a sealant that repels water, just to keep damage to a minimum.
Plants need protection too – if you have plants that are susceptible to frost damage, now is the time to take care of them. If you have a greenhouse move them in there for the winter, or if not, you can get special covers that you can place over the plants to protect them from the oncoming winter weather.
