As the nights start to draw in and the clocks go back, you start to think less about the garden, as those long, hot Summer days become a distant memory. When you are not thinking of the outdoors as much it is easy to neglect the garden and the jobs that need to be done in it. But there is a lot to be done in the garden at this time of the year, and it can benefit you enormously to do some things in the Autumn, as come the Summer you can enjoy the fruits of your labours!
Don’t forget about the birds – At this time of the year, it is the most important time to ensure that you have food out for the garden birds. There has been a huge decline in many species of garden birds in the UK over recent years, so you would be doing your bit to help nature flourish. As food becomes scarce over the Winter months, supplying food to your local birds will give you a great display of the local wildlife, and if you put up nest boxes now, come the Spring you may well have birds nesting in your garden and bringing up their young! Make sure you put nest boxes in a high sheltered location where cats and other predators can’t get to them though!
Give your Garden a Makeover – Who wants to waste the glorious sunny Summer days working in the garden when you could be sat outside enjoying a glass of wine or two? If you have plans for your garden there is no better time than Autumn to start bringing your plans to fruition! If you dream of having a new shed in your garden or want to add a little bit more room with a summerhouse Worcester company http://worldofsmile.com/summerhouses-and-sheds/ will provide you with what you are looking for and by next Summer, all you will have to do is enjoy it when the weather is back to its best!
Get Planting – There are a lot of plants and vegetables that you can plant at this time of the year that will keep your garden looking it’s best. If you have a lot of trees in your garden, make sure that you regularly clear up the leaves that will have started to drop all over the garden – if you have a compost bin, they will be perfect to add to that.
