Keeping Your Lawn and Garden Clear
04 August 2016
Just like your home, your garden should be a clear and tidy environment in which you and your family can relax and unwind. Keeping your garden clear isn’t a huge task, and can fit easily into your weekly cleaning and home care routine. If you want to know how you can easily and quickly keep your garden clear and free from clutter then here are some tips and tricks to help you!
1) Invest in outdoor storage solutions.
From patio furniture that you don’t use in the winter months, to children’s toys, your lawn and garden can end up accumulating a lot of clutter over time. One of the best ways to keep your garden free from bits and bobs like this is to invest in suitable outdoor storage solutions. There are lots of ways in which you can store your outdoor items over the winter, or while they’re not in use, and doing so will ensure that your lawn is always clutter-free. Have a look at your local garden centre to find out what’s available for you, and make a point of clearing and tidying any garden items away into storage once they’ve been used.
2) Clearing debris.
Adverse weather, litter and wildlife can all create messes in your garden. Take the time to go over your garden once a week and remove any items that shouldn’t be there. Fallen tree branches, rubbish and pet mess can all accumulate in no time, making your garden appear messy and unkempt. Clearing away items like this as soon as they appear will keep your garden looking better for longer, so make sure you include this in your household cleaning routine.
3) Weeding your garden.
Weeds are unsightly, and they can make your garden look uncared for. If you notice weeds growing in the cracks of your patio, on your lawn or in your flowerbeds then make sure you have the tools and equipment to deal with them. Take a pair of gardening gloves to remove the weeds as close to the root as possible. Next, lay down a weed-killing or preventative-growth product to keep them from returning for as long as possible.
4) Caring for your plants and lawn.
Keep your garden in shape by regularly trimming and pruning your plants and hedges. If you don’t regularly mow your lawn, try to find the time to work it into your schedule as a regular chore, and make sure you’re pruning and clipping your plants afterwards too.
5) Leaf clearance.
In the autumn months, or during bad weather, leaves can fall and tarnish the appearance of your garden. Invest in a good rake or a leaf-blower to keep your garden looking its best all year round. Leaves should be disposed of in your green recycling bin, so make sure yours is clear before beginning to remove your leaves!
6) Hiring the experts.
Hiring gardening professionals can save you the time and effort of garden waste removal, leaf collection and garden tidy ups, and it will ensure that the job is done to a high standard. If you’re interested in hiring professional help then speak to the gardening experts at your local gardening company. It’s worth asking people that you know for recommendations of companies, as this will help you to find the reliable gardening help that you need.
