Jobs for Late Summer and Early Autumn in your Garden

September 9, 2021 2:40 pm


As August comes to an end, the chill in the air that we can feel starts to herald the start of Autumn. Throughout the summer months we have enjoyed the gardens but to keep them at their best, there are lots of things in the garden to get on with at this time of the year…

Clear up the garden – Any debris and mess should be cleared away – look out for falling leaves at this time of the year, especially on paths and decking as this can be a real slipping hazard. Twigs and sticks will also be something to look out for, especially after those strong autumn winds.

Do Repairs – This is a great time to do repairs that need to be done – whether you need to replace the Mountfield Parts on your lawnmower like these or need have fencing that has become damaged, getting the repairs done before the winter means that you are less likely to encounter further damage as the bad weather sets in.

Replace Furniture – If you are hankering after some new garden furniture, now is the best time to do it. As summer is coming to an end, a lot of places will do fantastic discounts on outdoor furniture, and you may well be able to pick up a bargain at this time of the year.

Plant spring bulbs – If you want to enjoy a glorious colour display in the spring, now is the time to plant daffodils and bluebells. Get them into the ground now before the winter sets in and come the spring you will have a beautiful floral display.
