    Tips to achieve a spotless garden after a party

    Published on 27 April 2014, Sunday, 2:05 AM

    No matter what kind of event you're planning to hold in your backyard, chances are there may be some significant clearing up to do afterwards!

    This could range from picking up Easter egg wrappers to more extensive tasks. However, with this easy guide you will have the cleaning up done in no time so you can relax with your feet up and relive all the highlights of your party or soiree.


    If you've decorated for your big event with loads of twinkling lights you are guaranteed to have plenty of stunning photos.

    However, it can be a bit tricky to remove them, particularly if there has been any wind which may have tangled the lights.

    Hiring a cherry picker is one way to ensure you remain safe as these lights are removed from their pride of place.


    Even if you had the foresight to provide rubbish bins for all your guests to use, there are bound to be additional scraps of paper or odds and ends that have missed the bin.

    The easiest way to clean this up may be by enlisting the help of volunteers! Start by collecting any cups, bottles or glasses. You can empty these and set aside the glass vessels for cleaning later. Any disposables can be popped in the rubbish.

    Then give each person an area to work in and a rubbish bag to fill - the job shouldn't take too long if you've got helpers on board.

    Garden DIY

    After the marquee has been taken away and all tables and chairs stashed successfully, you may want to take a look at your garden.

    These big items can wreak havoc where your nicely tended garden is concerned, so you may want to give some thought to how you can repair the damage.

    It could be that you do some garden landscaping and put in a vege patch or mini orchard in place of the lawn area, or you could simply aerate and reseed the grass - it's entirely up to you.
