We love winter, the colours of fire kicking round our feet as we stumble home to a warm cup of soup, wrapped up snug, feet up and TV on, we barely give the garden a thought.
Mow-N-Blow has just finished building a stone paved area with fire pit for a client who likes to watch the stars outside on clear winter nights with a fire to keep warm. I’m thinking of doing the same myself, in the wildlife area of the garden where we live.
In fact one of the best times of year to get those decks built or patios paved is now and over the winter, many of us will do a better deal at this time of year and it disturbs your life less. The plans you have been thinking about can be ready for the summer, rather than being done in summer.
So do give the garden a thought and think about how much we enjoy it when the weather is right, so why not let professionals get wet and cold during the winter so you can enjoy summer!
