Now that September is here the weather seems to have gone down a more autumnal route, and with that comes the idea of pumpkin spiced lattes and scented candles. However, a lot of the time in the UK, we are still blessed with a relatively warm beginning to autumn, which means that you can still take advantage of your outside space. Autumn is the perfect time not only to enjoy your garden but to also prepare it for the winter ahead. So that when Spring does begin next year, you can make the most of it almost straight away. With that in mind, here are some of the ways you can make the most out of your garden this Autumn.
Tackle those garden chores
We all have those yearly tasks that we tend to put off during the summer months. Possibly because we can be thinking of better things to do when the sun is shining. However, while the weather is still mostly dry and warm, you may want to think about getting them jobs done before the colder weather starts to remain a permanent feature. Things like clearing out the gutters and jet washing the patios or outside windows. This helps things to be tidy and ready for the winter ahead. Leaving them means you have more of a bigger task in the Spring.
Eat al fresco or create an outside kitchen
If the weather is good, why not continue to enjoy eating outside or cooking on a BBQ. You may even find that at this time of year, it could be the perfect time to invest in a new outdoor kitchen or BBQ to cook on. Websites like www.bbqsplus.com.au are always worth a look. Many people choose to invest in their garden during the Autumn, as often bigger jobs can be done with ease as well as being an ideal time to grab some bargains. Don’t let the word Autumn stop you from enjoying your garden.
Get some garden storage
With winter coming soon, it might be the ideal time for you to start thinking about garden storage and where you may tidy things away to protect them from icy blasts, rain and snow. A garden shed or even something smaller like a storage box can be great additions to any outside space. If you are looking for a bargain, then websites like www.ebay.co.uk are always worth a look.
Take care of your lawns
After the summer, our lawns can often be in need of some grass seed or some tender loving care. Autumn is the perfect time to ensure that you give your lawn some attention before the colder weather sets in. It enables the lawn to withstand some of the harshest weather.
Give the flowerbeds the last weeding
Finally, the flowerbeds are always in need of some weeding, especially as the rain may start to be more frequent. Every opportunity you have, get out there to weed them to avoid it being a huge task when the spring arrives.
I hope these tips help you make more use of your garden this autumn.
