Clean your Patios and Decking

After the varied weather we have experienced this summer, your patio and decking probably needs a lot of attention. The mix of hot, sunny weather with a number of cold and rainy days has most likely taken a toll on the outside of your home so before the seasons change and the cold becomes more permanent it is a good idea to power wash your patio and decking to ensure it is ready for autumn. Once it is dry, use a gritted lacquer to help preserve it throughout the colder months.

Perform Garden Maintenance

Autumn and winter can wreak havoc on your garden so now is the time to  perform all the necessary garden maintenance tasks ahead of the season change. Start to clear out your garden to prepare it for the colder months when you are less likely to be out in the garden. Tackle those awkward tree stumps head on with a stump grinder; it’ll make the job a whole lot easier.

Prune your Trees

Another important aspect of garden maintenance which is best performed before autumn makes an appearance is pruning the trees. Pruning your trees ahead of autumn is critical to help avoid most of the mess which can be caused as the leaves begin to fall.  Along reach pruner is ideal for reaching those tall trees.

Prepare Outdoor Mats and Rugs Ready for Storage
