Its been a busy few weeks for us at Mow ‘N’ Blow Landscapes, we have had some lovely projects, building raised sleeper beds and installing home offices with new patios, we feel very privileged that our customers chose us, and we have been lucky with the weather too.
But as the nights draw near and the weather undoubtedly turns for the worse, now is a good time to think about those jobs that need doing before winter sets in. All the little jobs that should be done before the cold and freeze and rain worsen them even more, so they don’t become a bigger more expensive job next year.
Those loose steps up to the garage or front door, the shed that needs staining or re-felting, or even the wobbly patio slabs. It’s also a good time to replace fencing as our fences will once again take a beating this winter, and if they are loose now they may break in high wind. With a fencing shortage this year after the storms last winter it may prove wise to replace them now. And don’t forget to buy your salt and grit early so again avoiding the rush!
