How do you keep your garden looking its best when the cooler months set in? Here are some top tips to ensure it receives the love and attention it deserves:
Start Off With A Sturdy Foundation
Nobody wants their garden to turn into a mudslide from the first drop of rain. Begin by creating shelter and solid ground when water-proofing your garden. Laying down paving, and building a deck or a pergola extends your home to enjoy all-year round. Don’t forget to include drainage in your yard too in case of excessive rain.
Your Lawn Deserves Some Love
As it begins to cool, you can ensure your lawn remains in great condition by watering it regularly (if there isn’t great rainfall), and feeding it some slow-release fertiliser. You will know your lawn is in need of some water if the leaves begin to curl or dry spots start appearing.
Don’t Forget About Me!
During the winter months it is particularly important to remember your potted plants. Consider repositioning them in a spot with the most amount of sun.
Turn It Up
It does get darker earlier, but that doesn’t mean you should stop using your outdoor entertaining area. Try adding some lighting to the space to liven it up even on the darkest of winter evenings.
Strike A Match
Not only does a backyard fire add warmth to your cooler months, but it also creates a beautiful ambience for entertaining. Fire pits are becoming increasingly popular in the Australian backyard as a great focal point in your yard.
