In winter, most of the plants are in a dormant state, and so your garden seems silent. But certainly, there are a number of ways by which you can enjoy your green garden at this time of the cold winter.
All of us enjoy spending a great deal of time in our garden during the warmer months of the year. However, we also need to keep in mind that maintaining these areas can be slightly challenging. This is often the case if you happen to be dealing with an extremely dry lawn. The good news is that there are several steps to take which will ensure that your lawn continues to boast a verdant green appearance even if it does not receive any rain.
The nice thing about septic systems is that often they are trouble-free. They don’t require much in the way of maintenance, other than routine pump-outs from your local plumbing company. Septic systems are an excellent option for those that don’t have access to public sewers as a means to deal with wastewater. Knowing more about your septic system can give you an inside look at what to expect when you choose a home with the septic system or need to have one installed.
The early years are a pivotal time for children, it is the time when they are learning about the world around them. From the people they love with, their extended network of family and friends, as well as classes, groups or nursery that they may attend. These years are the ones where they will learn so much more than they will as they grow up. From the everyday things of walking, running, talking and understanding (and dealing with) their emotions.
One of the bigger tasks that we wanted to do was to create a play area for the children. After losing their trampoline in the storms earlier in the year they have only had a few bits and bobs to occupy them in the garden. Wishing to create something that will last whilst they each grow up. As well as a durable area so that we don’t have to worry during storms and Piglet’s fearless approach to life
Gardening can be challenging, too. The number one drawback? Pests that sneak into your garden and feed off of the fertiliser or your plants themselves. If you don’t like the idea of lab-made pesticides, don’t worry! There are plenty of plants you can grow that will naturally repel pests. Here are a few ideas.
We all know that fresh air and getting outdoors is good for our health. It’s even more important for kids, especially those living in towns and cities. Being stuck indoors, playing video games or watching TV is okay on a wet and windy day when there’s nothing else to do, but there is no substitute for a bit of outdoor fun.
Most parents are trying to encourage their kids to engage in gardening but how many are ultimately successful? Though children love getting dirty, if it seems like a chore they may stay away from working in a garden. You’ll have to make the job enjoyable and fun to get your kids excited about developing a garden. Encouraging kids and making them excited about creating their own special plot in nature is simple.
As you know I’ve been working on the Back to the Garden campaign with Sudocrem during the lockdown. It’s a great little project that aims to encourage children to get into the garden during this period when they can’t attend school. We think getting outside to plant some seeds and grow vegetables and plants is a great way to pass the time, it’s healthy, it teaches kids about where food comes from and it’s something that they don’t normally learn about in the classroom.
The idea that grass is just grass isn’t true. There’s actually a big difference in the different types of grass. Rather than just going with the cheapest bag of grass seed you can get your hands on, put a little thought into what kind of grass performs best in your region so you’ll have a beautiful lawn.
