Garden DIY – Get Your Garden Ready for Autumn With Expert Tips

The colder weather has definitely started to set in here in the Donegal and we thought it was time to start thinking about our gardens this Autumn!

It’s the perfect time to start laying the foundations for a fantastic garden come spring next year and for getting some ideas about creating a new paved patio area, or sprucing up your driveway.

So as the gorgeous golden and brown leaves begin to fall, follow our top tips to get the most out of your outdoor space over the next few months.

  • Now’s the time to plant more bulbs and shrubs ready for Spring next year. If you fancy a rearrange of your existing shrubs, move them now so they can settle in over the winter months.
  • Autumn is the perfect time to get your garden equipment serviced if it has been used a lot over the last few months. If you’re storing lots of gardening tools and larger equipment, organise them properly in your shed so they’ll be ready to use next year.
  • If you have lots of pots on your patio, consider raising them onto bricks. This will help avoid their containers sitting directly in the winter wet weather.
  • To save turning your lawn into a muddy area in the wet Autumn months, consider laying a path or artificial grass for easy access to areas where you generally need to tread. We have a fantastic range artificial grass and paving products of and dedicated stepping stones to create the perfect, durable path.
