How To Prep Your Garden For Winter

When the colder months begin to take over we allow our gardens to fall into disrepair and leave them to ready¬†themselves for hibernation. However with just a little care and attention you’ll be able to give your yard the best chance it can have for a successful growing season come the Spring.

Super charging your garden doesn’t need to be a difficult task, you’ll find plenty of great ideas included in this post but there are a few extra things you can do to guarantee a success such as:

  • Feed Your Lawn – fertilizing it now will make it fuller and more lush in the warmer months. It will also allow it to recover quicker after the last frost has gone!
  • Prepare Flower Beds – Make sure you clean out any perennials or weeds from your flower beds, this will prevent any rot in the soil when the rain comes.
  • Clean Your Pond – Make sure it is ship shape and clear out any fish waste, unwanted leaves or algae that may effect the delicate ecosystem.
  • Repair Damage – Simply reseed any grass or turf that has been damaged in the summer!
