Are you selling your home over winter? Just because mowing season has come to an end, that doesn’t mean your garden has to lose its appeal during the colder months.
Here are four tips on how to prepare your garden in your Grantham home for winter to keep it looking fabulous over Christmas and into the new year.
There’s no better time than late autumn to give your lawn a bit of TLC. Give it a final cut (that isn’t too short), pull out any weeds and fill the patches of exposed soil with grass seeds.
If your lawn sits under a tree and often falls victim to autumn leaves, make sure you clear away any debris before winter, too. While the brightly coloured leaves look stunning scattered across the lawn, they can quickly rot come winter and kill off patches of grass. No one wants a patchy lawn, especially if you’re selling up!
If you have a compost bin, just before winter is the best time to harvest and use what you’ve created. Once summer is over, your compost bin has likely created a batch of nutrient-rich soil that’s ready to use. Plus, your plants, trees and shrubs will love the extra nourishment just before the cold weather kicks in.
To prepare your garden for winter, use up the compost in your bin for things like sowing grass seeds and topping up the soil in your flowerbeds.
Ponds and water features in your garden don’t just look great. They can also add value to UK properties and breathe life into your garden ! But the secret to reaping the benefits of these attractions is to make sure they’re well maintained. A poorly looked after pond or water feature can quickly become a property’s downfall.
With heavy winds, increased rainfall and even snow, ponds can easily become clogged up with debris (and bad smells) over winter. To prevent your beautiful features from becoming a pain, cover your pond with netting and place a tennis ball in the water to prevent it from freezing over.
Who doesn’t love a splash of colour in their garden over the winter months? Usually, winter drains the colour from our gardens and leaves only the evergreen look behind.
But if you’re selling your home and want to make a lasting impression, or you just love having a bright garden all year round, you can plant winter bulbs like heather, cyclamen, pansies, and snowdrops in pots or hanging baskets. They’ll bloom in bright shades of reds, purples, pinks, and whites. There’s nothing that will wow your viewers more than a vibrant winter garden.
