How to Enjoy Your Garden in the Winter
Winter can be a quieter time in the garden, however there are still many ways to enjoy it, whilst also potentially preparing your garden for the spring at the same time. Here are a range of top tips to make your garden the perfect haven all year round.
Preparing for Spring
There are so many ways to appreciate your winter garden and a variety of winter plants for you to enjoy such as evergreens, crocus and snowdrops. However, if you are desperate to get back to gardening there are a few things you can do to prep your garden for spring. Now is the time to begin planting bare root plants and pruning things such as fruit trees, shrubs and roses. Winter is all about preparation so why not tidy your shed or greenhouse? You’ll thank yourself come spring when the tidying has already taken place. If you have a greenhouse, winter is the perfect time to make the most of it! Make sure you’re taking care of the plants in there at all times.
Enjoy your hard work
An excellent way to enjoy your garden in the winter is to think of all the cosy ways you can sit out in it over the colder months. A great way to do this is to invest in a log cabin, such as log cabins for sale from GBC group. A log cabin will allow you to sit out and appreciate your winter garden without having to brave the elements. A log cabin is a great investment for your garden all year round, it will not only provide a cosy hideaway for winter, but it can double as a summer house and even provide you with some extra storage should you need it. Why not add a wood burner to make it extra cosy on a cold winter evening.
If you’re looking to add some warmth to your garden over winter, consider adding some patio heaters. This will allow you to sit out in your garden despite the colder temperatures. They will come in handy all year round, especially in the evening. If patio heaters aren’t your thing you may want to invest in a fire pit. A fire pit not only adds warmth but is an excellent place to gather with friends in an evening. As with the patio heater, a fire pit is a great addition at any time of year, particularly on summer nights.
Another thing to consider in your winter garden is lighting. It’s all about ambience, so why not add some fairy lights in the trees or bushes around your garden? If you’re sitting out in your garden on a winter’s evening, maybe light some candles to make it extra cosy and relaxing. There are so many ways you can enjoy your garden all year round, especially when you’ve put so much effort into it.
