Garden maintenance in the winter tips
At the garden you quickly think of the summer, eating outside, barbecuing and enjoying the sun. But it is precisely in time around it garden maintenance so important. This is also the case in winter.
But what can you do in the winter and what is easy garden tools to use now?
Garden maintenance in winter
With garden maintenance you soon think of the spring and autumn, but also in the winter there is plenty to do with the maintenance of your garden. Good garden tools are needed, not only because you can maintain the garden well with this, but also because good tools are so much more pleasant to work with. What the pleasure of garden maintenance will keep up again. Because after all, this is not everyone’s favorite hobby.
And if you are looking for good tools for the garden, the Gardena Combisystem is ideal to use. In addition to being sustainable, it takes less space in the shed and is better for your back. How that is and what you can do for garden maintenance in the winter, you read it here.
Today I happened to hear on the radio how good it is to leave the leaves that fall from the trees in the garden. This is good for, for example, hedgehogs and insects, but in addition you can of course remove the weeds. If you keep this up a bit all year round, then your garden will look neat all year round.
With the 3-in-1 joint scraper from Gardena you can easily get weeds and moss between the joints. This joint scraper has a thin knife for narrow joints, a triangular bracket for wide joints and a metal brush for removing moss from the joints. Due to the long combistel you no longer have to squat, but you just stand upright.
This is a much more pleasant attitude to work.
It’s such a shame when a flowerpot breaks through the frost, last year this happened to me with my strawberry plant. Now I have to say that I didn’t have a place at that time to put it somewhere else and therefore left it in the garden. Now the pot broke through the frost, but the strawberry plant has survived the wonderfully.
And gave us beautiful and tasty strawberries again this year.
My husband built an extra shed in the back of the garden in the spring. Here are the bikes of the boys, but also the garden tools that we often use. Now that we are busy with the garden maintenance to prepare the garden for winter, I can now also lose all my pots here. I actually assume that this time they will all stay whole, when I protect them and use them again next year.
But coming back to garden maintenance, what else can you do now?
Pruning bushes and trees
Pruning the bushes and trees. When pruning you may rather think of the spring and autumn, but winter is also a great time to prune. Why?
Because many plants are now in hibernation. In the winter not much happens with the plant and you can see the branches much better in the winter and therefore much better.
Keep the garden path snow -free
If snow comes again, make sure you make the path at your door free of snow. Even though there is only a little snow, this can be freezing and smooth. To prevent accidents, keeping your street snow -free is very important.
Combination system from Gardena
If you now use multiple garden tools for your garden, then it is wise to buy a combisystem at Gardena. You then buy a handle and can use it for different garden tools. This is very simple with a rotary knob.
For example, you can put a MultiHark on the stem, but also a 3-in-1 joint scraper, a broom or snow shiver. This not only saves space, it is also sustainable and what about your back. The 3-in-1 joint scraper can also be attached to the stem.
This makes you stand upright, so that your work posture is much better, but you can also distribute your strengths well.
