The days are getting shorter and there is a definite chill in the air, which can mean only one thing, winter is coming. While for many people this means less time spent outdoors and in the garden, it’s important not to immediately neglect your outside spaces. In fact, autumn is a great time to start thinking about getting your garden ready for the winter months. You may spring clean the house, but do you autumn tidy your home’s outdoor spaces?
After a summer of BBQs, outdoor games and afternoons spent residing on the lawn, it’s likely your garden is in need of a good tidy. Store away those garden games, children’s toys and summer garden furniture to protect them against the elements.
Cycling is a popular pass-time which is taking Britain by storm. If you or your family are keen cyclists, make sure your bikes are protected not only against thieves, but against cold and wet weather conditions too. You may not feel like cycling in the current climate, but look after your bike through the winter and it will function well in Spring – or whenever you next want to hop on!
There is nothing better than curling up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire when it’s cold and blustery outside. If you’re lucky enough to have an open log fire at home, don’t risk ruining your cosy evening in by finding your logs are damp. Invest in an outdoor log store to avoid disappointment. Or perhaps you like to keep your logs in the house? A log store can keep the room looking neat and tidy.
Garden storage isn’t just useful for logs and toys. If you’re green thumbed and don’t let the cold keep you away from your garden, you’re probably planning some planting over winter. There are plenty of veggies which grow such as onions, garlic and broad beans and a garden storage system for your gardening tools will help you stay organised and active over the winter planting period.
