Response: Thanks for your feedback and that you wouldn't definitely recommend us. Being a family business that is like music to our ears. I'm pleased you are happy with your new shed for your garden. Regards, Robin.
During the winter the garden tends to be forgotten as it preferable to stay indoors, certainly when we had the severe cold weather a while ago, and the garden shed was left in isolation. Probably the last time you went in your shed was to put your garden tools away which now will seem quite a while ago. You would have course have cleaned all your garden implements and stored them so they can stay dry and rust free ready for the spring - you did didn't you? Never mind we have probably seen the worse of the winter and the warm rays of the sun will be here soon and you can venture into your shed to see what you should have done.
The garden itself will be looking a little sad and forlorn but it won't take long when the sun comes out for the grass to start to show a little more green and your garden will start looking a lot healthier and greener. It's at this time you will start feeling pleased with yourself until you realise now is the time to open the door of your garden shed and bring out the lawn mower and it becomes apparent that for the next 8-9 months you will be pushing this up and down the garden as the grass grows merrily away. I was told if you water the grass with whisky it will come up 'half cut' so that will save some time.
When you look outside you will see that weeds are still everywhere and, if left, will flourish when the warmer weather comes so now is the time to wrap up and get outside to sort this out. A trip down to the garden shed to get a few tools such as a garden hoe, trowel and maybe an old screwdriver is what I would use on weeds in the concrete. The damp ground during the winter months helps to make this job easier as the roots have less to grip onto.
By pulling the weeds directly out of the garden this is more complete and is more environmentally friendly than using weed killers and various other nasties out of your garden shed. After a heavy rainfall is a good time to do this as the ground will be even softer. This is a job you really need to do to ensure that nettles and bindweed do not get the opportunity to flourish as these will spread rapidly. The sides of garden sheds (even modern sheds), fences and timber arbours are all places in the garden where these weeds can cling to.
Thistles and dandelions are some of the other main offenders and with a swift flick of the wrist with the trowel they can be uprooted from the garden leaving your grass, flowers and plants the best opportunity to grow. By removing the weeds this will help to improve drainage on garden lawns and if you add potash to the garden this will help the garden lawn to survive the winter months, however, you do not want to be putting on any nitrogen-rich fertilisers yet and should wait until spring. At this time these fertilisers will aid quick, leafy growth.
Also during the winter it's a good idea to apply a layer of mulch to any vulnerable plants to protect them from frost. When you have finished with your garden tools don't forget to clean them before you put them away in your shed otherwise the tools will start to rust. Always ensure the shed is as dry as possible.
