Start Thinking About Preparing Your Garden For The Winter

You Should Be Thinking About Preparing Your Garden For The Winter

If you’re interested in keeping your garden fresh and cared for, then you should be thinking about preparing your garden for the winter. 

[disclosure - collaborative post]

It’s important that you’re ready for it, as there are a lot of things you won’t want to be out there doing when it’s gotten too cold. It’s best you’ve taken care of it before the cold hits, that way you can have it maintained until spring comes.If you’ve come here with questions like “when do I winterize my lawn?” or “what are the best plants for winter?” you’ve come to the right place! Your garden can be a haven all year round, and not just something pretty to look at when your flowers bloom during the warmer seasons.

Get cleaning

If you’re reading this before winter starts, you should be getting ready to get your garden tidied up. If you’ve left all of the leaves around, and there’s generally a bit of mess, you’ll want to deal with that as soon as possible. You won’t want to be out there in the freezing temperatures doing it, and you might not find another good opportunity for a few months! Grab the rake and shovel, and get to work!

Planting appropriately

Your garden is more than just a summer decoration, it can be pretty and colorful during the winter, too! If you’ve planted the right flowers, then you can see the kinds of bloom that you would usually only see in the spring and summer.

Pansies are a great choice for any garden. They have no trouble blooming during the winter, and they bring very vibrant shades. People often worry that their garden will look dull and bland, but these will put a stop to that.

Winter heaths are another great choice for your garden. Their bright pink shades will really stand out, and you’ll even miss them during the summer. If you want to see these bloom during the winter, you better get some while you can!

If you’re going for a whole range of colors, then you might also be interested in the winter jasmine. These lovely yellow flowers will brighten up any winter setting.

Look out for wildlife

Winter is the hardest season for most of the wildlife that you might see in your garden, which is why it’s very important that you’re looking out for them. Animals will often eat a lot more in the winter, as they have to prepare their bodies for the cold. Considering this, you might want to put out more food for them to eat, so that they might have an easier time keeping warm and surviving for the next few months.

If you’ve been looking to attract more wildlife to your garden, now might be a good time to do so. Animals are a lot more in need of food than they usually are, so they might have an easier time accepting your garden as a good place for them to feed.
