Prepare Your Garden for Winter

As an avid gardener I find it really difficult to stay out of my garden during winter months. Even though there are some plants that still grow well in winter, there isn’t really that much to do in the garden once the month of November begins. The only thing left for me to do right now is to prepare my yard for colder months. Here is my advice concerning what to do:

1. Don’t keep any tools outside or you risk damaging them. Make sure that you find enough storage space so that all of them fit safely. Rust is your number one enemy, so you might want to keep an eye on the tools that can fall victim to it. If you lack space in your sheds, I suggest that you check storage units in your area such as storage units Virginia Beach. Storing your garden tools properly will ensure that they are going to serve you for a long time.

2. Make sure that your water hoses are untangled so that they don’t prove to be problematic. Using a coat hook can be very helpful as you won’t trip over any hose again.

3. Pallets can be useful in any garden to help you to store your garden tools especially when you don’t use them. They can help you to keep things organized so that you have more space for other things in your garden. You might want to have them fixed to the wall so that they don’t fall and injure anybody, especially children and pets. Giving them a fresh lick of paint from time to time might be a good idea as well.

4. Keep all the leaves away. There are a lot of them starting from the month of October. You might want to remove them regularly, because if you fail to do so wet leaves can permanently damage your patio making it slippery and unusable. Overall, cleaning your garden during winter months can prove to be useful as well. Even if you don’t spend there that much time, knowing that everything is in order should already make you feel better.
