During the cooler months it is likely that your outdoor area doesn't get used regularly, as we favour the warmth of indoors to socialise and share meals.
However, with outdoor eating spaces rising in popularity, it is important that at this time of year - despite its irregular use, you maintain your backyard area as you would with the rest of your home.
Especially since the last thing you want to be doing come spring and summer is spending your weekends doing garden landscaping because you've let it all get out of hand.
Maintaining your outdoor area doesn't have to be a huge job, instead regular upkeep will reduce your workload making it far more manageable - not to mention a great time-saver!
If you don't have a large area of lawn, you may find hiring a lawn mower and edger from your local Kennards Hire more viable than purchasing your own.
Keeping lawns and edges looking neat and tidy on a regular basis will ensure your backyard looks good all year round, regardless of the season!
Spraying those pesky weeds is also a good idea to keep them from getting out of hand.
