Now that Autumn has officially begun, it’s important to prepare and maintain your garden for the harsher cold months. Now is the perfect time to tidy your borders, clear any dead vegetation, clear gutters and more. Dealing with these issues now will help maintain and preserve your garden as we transition into the colder seasons.
Autumn and winter is a quiet time for your lawn. You don’t want to mow your grass nearly as often, as the ground is much softer. Although the coming months will be cold and harsher for the grass, it’s actually one of the greatest times for its growth. With more rainfall and less foot traffic, your grass can flourish. Did you know that grass stops growing in conditions under 5 degrees celsius? We recommend mowing once a month depending on the growth rate.
If your garden has an abundance of different plant life, shrubbery and trees, it’s important to prune and tidy them up during the cold months. Using trimmers, strimmers or a mower to edge your lawn, or to prune bushes and trees, will not only improve the visual appearance but its health as well. Most homeowners neglect their outdoor living space in these months making it harder to regain its appearance in the summer.
Leaf Compost Piles
Autumn is known in the UK for the golden and orange leaves which eventually end up on the lawn or floor as trees lose their leaves. Leaves scattered across your lawn can trap moisture and encourage disease and worm activity. Regularly sweeping your lawn leaves into a pile is a great way to build a compost heap which could be used to inhibit growth in areas that are struggling.
How Greenleaf Clearance Could Help You
Our expert team here at Greenleaf Clearance can help you with the dreaded job that includes collecting and disposing of green organic waste. Maintaining your garden is only half of the process, once you have mowed, trimmed and collected an array of your garden’s material you will then have to arrange its disposal. Of course you could collect it all for composting, but for those who want to get rid of it you may have to travel back and forth from a disposal centre multiple times. Instead of regular trips up and down to the disposal centre and a car full of clippings and grass, we could arrive on-site and collect all of your waste through a Surrey clearing. With 10 lorries on standby, we could collect the entirety of your waste for disposal without you having to leave your home once!
