Autumn gardening is just as important as summer gardening. Your outside space might not be in full bloom, but autumn gardening is about maintenance and planning, and protecting and preparing your garden for the cold months ahead—including your summer houses, wooden garages, and log cabins.
Follow these tips to keep your outdoor space looking smart throughout the autumn and winter months:
Now is the time to store away any garden furniture to protect it from the incoming cold weather. Get your summer barbecues packed up, utensils inside, wrap chimineas with waterproof covers.
Sweeping surfaces regularly is a must in autumn. Fallen leaves and rainy weather can make for very slippery surfaces, so keep your walkways, patios, decking and driveways swept as much as you can.
All outdoor buildings need some care in the cold weather. Whether it’s a summer house, greenhouse, garden room, wooden garage or log cabin, you need a bit of TLC to protect them from the winter elements.
Treat your wooden outbuildings with a weather protection wood preserver. This will not only prevent any damage to the wood in the wind, rain and low temperatures, but will also help to preserve the colour from fading, too.
You might also like to clear out and organise the inside of your outbuildings, as well as protecting the outside. Having an ‘autumn clean’ is as important as a ‘spring clean’, and will help you to easily bring your garden back to life next year when the warm weather comes around again.
