Changes to your Garden for 2014, start planning now.
2012/13 have been interesting gardening years! Another exciting, weather trodden, poor crops, great experience but also one that may help you decide to make changes to your garden for next year.
What changes would you like to make to your garden? Could this be due to the massive amount of rain we have had? Crops drowning in water?
So what could you do to make things better in your garden, to make changes to your garden?
- Raised beds – great for the ageing gardener, less bending over, less back pain – but also less water logging, warmer soil and so earlier crops.
- Better drainage – this could be by making drainage gulleys, filled with gravel and taking water away from a lawn or paths.
- Bog areas – water loving plants, make your garden use its features, why change something that isnt broken? Or tame the wild.
- Adding bark or recylced rubber tyres to a border to increase water retension in dry weather and less weeds.
- Widen borders – enrich with compost to aide drainage, feed plants and get rid of a flooded lawn?
- Artificial grass – get rid of that muddy, weedy lawn – we will lay a proper porous base and edging and a lawn that will never have weeds in, never have moss in and will NEVER need mowing!
What ever problems you have in the garden or plans to make changes to your garden, autumn and winter are a great time to make these changes to your garden. Whilst most plants are dormant, a great time to move them or bring in root balled shrubs – which are cheaper and times usually when landscapers are quiet, so you can drive a hard bargain for reducing costs!
