Well this is my last letter for a while and I do hope you have enjoyed reading my tips and ideas for winter gardening. There are so many topics I didn’t get around to mentioning, from winter plant protection, wrapping and closhing, to heating and protecting greenhouses’, there is always so much to do in the garden at any time of year, in fact I always think the slowest time of the garden is around Wimbledon time. The garden always seems easiest to look after at this time, but that’s probably because of all the hard work we do for the rest of the year.
This is a good thing as it does mean when the weather is at its best we can relax and enjoy our gardens, the forgotten extra room at this time of year.
If you have enjoyed these letters and want to keep track of Mow-N-Blow or in fact need our services please get in touch through the website www. Mow-n-blow.co.uk or call me direct. I will keep blogging advice on the website so hope to see you there
So last week I wrote about starting new projects, however winter is also a good time to fix that which we have already. For an obvious start pressure washing driveways, patios, decking etc, and prepping them for winter.
There is more to this than you might think, waterless moss removal from block paving driveways, pressure washing patios but then allowing for re-pointing, and removing slime from decking and perhaps even installing anti slip decking systems, all work Mow-N-Blow performs for its clients at this time of year.
These surfaces face all sorts of damage during the year and especially in winter and they can become dangerous and a hazard to ourselves. Keeping these areas clean and well maintained throughout winter is just good sense. We wouldn’t leave our kids toys at the foot of the stairs; well we try not to!
You can however do more damage to these areas if the correct methods are not used so if you need any advice feel free to get in touch
