GARDEN MAINTENANCE EXETER

Here are some of our tops tips for great Garden Maintenance Exeter!

 

BARK YOUR BEDS

Add ornamental bark to your flower beds & borders. Bark not only smartens up your garden. It also:

 

TRAPS IN MOISTURE ⋅  reducing the need for watering in those long hot summer months (reducing your water bill!!)

PREVENT WEEDS ⋅ reducing your garden maintenance bill!  Consider adding a weed membrane before barking an area.

ENCOURAGE INSECTS ⋅  including those all important worms.  Worms will help to keep your soil rich in nutrients and healthy.  They are also a great source of food for wildlife, including the local bird population.

 

ADD A COMPOST BIN ⋅ GARDEN MAINTENANCE EXETER

Use softwood sleepers, gravels boards or wire fencing.   A compost bin is a great way to recycle your green waste.

A compost bin:

  • Recycles your gardens green waste, reducing those frequent trips to the tip/recyclying centre!
  • Over time will produce a rich compost that you can add to your flower beds and vegatable garden.
  • Great for wildlife in the garden. Providing worms and insects for birds.

Feed your lawn at least 3 times a year with a good quality sports lawn feed!

SPRING SPORTS LAWN FEED ⋅  Add a spring lawn feed to give a lawn a head start for the growing season.  Consider over seeding patchy areas.

SUMMER LAWN FEED ⋅ Rich in magnesium and nitrogen to give your lawn a deep green hue!

AUTUMN FEED ⋅ Banish those worm casts by add an autumn feed rich in iron sulphate.

Always ensure the lawn feed is well water in to prevent scorching.  Try applying a lawn feed on a wet rainy day!  Always spread your lawn feed evenly!
