When placing new plants and trees in the garden it is best to do some research of how big the size of the plant is going to grow to roughly, what kind of soil it is suited to and general health and maintenance will help keep the plant in good condition. Certain trees attract different kinds of insects and are more susceptible to disease.

What Can I Do to Prepare My Garden for Winter?

before and after by Armac Stump GrindingAfter a long and hot summer, many South West residents are looking forward to cooler weather ahead. Autumn typically brings sunny days with lower temperatures however, when autumn turns to winter, the sunny days are replaced with rain, winds and storms. For this reason, it’s important to ensure your garden is prepared for the winter weather ahead.

While there is a long list of suggestions to ensure your garden is prepared for winter, read on to learn 5 ways to prepare your garden for winter including:

  • Inspect trees for damage
  • Have tree branches trimmed
  • Ensure gutters are clean
  • Prepare winter vegetable plantings
  • Store and protect outdoor furniture

Inspect trees for damage

An unhealthy or damaged tree is more susceptible to falling during the fierce winds and storms of winter. Inspect trees for signs of damage and call a professional to have unhealthy or damaged trees removed. Signs of an unstable tree can include a tree that is leaning more than usual, has a build-up of soil on the side opposite the lean or has visible roots around the base of the tree.

Have tree branches trimmed

Having beautiful large trees is not only aesthetically pleasing, but provides beautiful shade during the summer. Fast forward a few months to winter and the higher the tree, the bigger the risk of potential damage. Strong and gale force winds can cause entire trees to be uprooted or considerable structural damage to occur. Large branches can fall onto roofs, fencing, gutters, sheds, patios or even through windows. Cutting or pruning trees before winter is a job best left to a professional, they have the experience and expertise not to mention the correct equipment to ensure safety too.

Ensure gutters are clean

Having gutters clear of leaves, dirt and debris will ensure water can freely flow through gutters and down drainpipes when winters rain arrives. Having water flowing away from your home will help to minimise the risk of it entering your home and causing damage.

Prepare winter vegetable plantings

 Prepare My Garden for WinterSome vegetation thrives in winter while others aren’t suited to the colder weather. Remove any vegetable plantings that aren’t favourable to winter and plant hardy vegetables for the winter months. If your vegetable patch includes herbs, some are suitable for winter and can tolerate the cold weather, while others will need some extra help.

Store and protect outdoor furniture

Before winter arrives, pack up and store outdoor furniture that won’t be used during the winter months. Doing so will protect the furniture from being damaged by rain plus also prevent it from being blown around during strong winds and storms.

3 Signs a Tree Needs to Be Trimmed or Removed?

Trees by the roadWith winter approaching it’s a good time to check the health of the trees on your property. With winter comes strong and gale force winds and lightning storms, checking trees on your property now enables you to have trees that are unsafe or could cause damage to your property, trimmed or removed before winter arrives.

What are the signs a tree on your property needs to be trimmed or removed? Read on to learn a few signs to look out for including:  

  • Overhanging branches
  • A tree is leaning to one side
  • Damage to the tree’s trunk

Overhanging branches

Tall and lush trees provide a great view and plenty of shade during summer. However, a tree that has grown very tall and now has overhanging branches can be a risk in winter. If branches are overhanging onto a home, an outdoor space such as a patio or shed, near windows, vehicles or even where people walk or stand then it is a good idea to have them trimmed. In some cases, strong and gale force winds can cause entire trees to be uprooted causing extensive structural damage to your home. The removing or pruning of trees and overhanging branches is a job best left to a professional who has the expertise and equipment to ensure trees are trimmed or removed safely.

A tree is leaning to one side

If a tree on your property has a slight lean to one side, this can be normal. After all, trees often don’t grow straight up and down. However, if you notice a tree is now leaning more than normal, it’s time to call in a professional to work out why. If you can see a leaning tree’s roots around the base or a leaning tree has soil accumulating on the side opposite the lean, it is likely the tree is unstable. A leaning tree should be inspected by a professional. It may not have to be removed, rather pruned and re-stabilised to help redistribute the trees weight evenly again.

Damage to the tree’s trunk

Tree being cut downWhen checking trees on a property it is important to check the trunk and base of a tree too. Visible cracks and splits in a tree’s trunk, fungus around the stump or splitting or peeling of branches are all signs a tree can be damaged. While as a homeowner you may identify these warning signs, a professional has the knowledge to identify the cause of the damage and if the tree needs to be trimmed or removed or can be bought back to good health.
