Preparing Your Garden For Winter

 AD - This is a PR collaboration.

As summer draws to a close you may already be feeling downhearted at the thought of waving goodbye to the sunny days lazing in the garden and the long alfresco evenings sat out on the summer breeze. However, with a few simple touches you can make sure your garden is a space to relish long after the leaves have fallen and the nights have drawn in.

Plant Evergreens
Your garden doesn’t have to become a bare wasteland throughout the winter months. Add colour and texture back into your garden by planting evergreens. Turn to your local garden centre to explore the host of options available. Coniferous shrubs such as Tatsumi Gold can add a pop of yellow/green warmth to a baron winter garden and Winter-Flowering Heather can bring your borders to life with a wash of pinks, purples, and white.

Garden Furniture For All Weather
Sitting out in the garden isn't just for Spring and Summer! In fact, there is nothing better than enjoying the fresh, crisp Autumnal air. I'm currently planning on purchasing a Hammock from Tropilex - the perfect addition for all-year-round relaxation. 

Garden Repairs
The end of summer, before the temperature drops, is the ideal time to carry out any maintenance work in your garden. Repair damaged fencing and decking, and protect them from the impending wrath of the elements with woodcare products.

Install Outdoor Lighting
The long nights enjoying the evening sun may soon be behind us, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of your garden in the evening. Adding lighting can bring your garden to life in the winter months and creates continuity between your indoor and outdoor space. Adorning bare branches with lanterns and adding fairy lights to your summer house or shed can make your garden feel inviting and helps to create some whimsical winter magic.

Welcome Nature
The bright colours of summer blooms may be dying back, but you can still invite life into your garden by creating space for wildlife. Help birds weather the winter frosts by hanging fat balls in wire cages, or add an ornate bird feature as a focal point of your garden.
