Beat the Winter Blues & look after your lawn in winter!
Beat the Winter Blues
The dark and cold of winter can sometimes leave us feeling a bit gloomy, can’t it?!
So it’s important that we Beat those Winter Blues!
🧣 Wrap up warm and get outside as much as you can, even if it’s only for 10 minutes at a time. The difference a bit of sunshine and fresh air can make to your mood and health is amazing!
🏡 Stroll around your garden to simply enjoy it and/or plan it for the year ahead. To really warm up you could do a spot of light gardening or tidying!
🐦 Keep bird feeders and water baths topped up and clean. It’s a tough time of year for our feathered friends!
🛍️ Go for a browse around your local town or village shops. You might grab a bargain in the sales!
🥾 Pack a hot flask and a spot of lunch and go for a walk in one of your favourite places.
🐦 Listen to the birds sing and watch nature doing its’ thing. It’s just as fascinating in winter!
⛄ If it snows where you are, get out there and build a snowman or two or go sledging!
📷 Take photos to remember your day (if you can bear to take your gloves off!).
☕ And don’t forget to warm up with a mug of hot chocolate afterwards!
Winter Lawn Care
There’s a chance we’ll wake up to a few more frosty mornings before winter is out!
❄️ If your lawn is frosty, try to stay off it as much as possible, as walking on it can cause damage.
🌱 When the frost clears, gently rake leaves and debris from your lawn so the sun can reach it.
❄️ Clear any snow from your lawn so the sun can reach it, and the snow won’t damage it.
🧹 Keep paths and patios safe to walk on by removing slippery moss and slime.
❄️ Stock up on De-Icing Rock Salt for your paths, driveway or patio. You can buy yours on our website in small or bulk bags.
❄️ Remove snow from hedges and greenhouses etc to prevent it from causing any damage.
🌲 Lay a good layer of Bark Chippings on wet and muddy gateways or unmade paths. It helps to absorb the water and makes paths easier and safer to walk on.
