Give the garden a good tidy up.  

First of all, the garden may start to look a little dishevelled down to all the leaves accumulating on the floor and lawn once September starts. So it would be the ideal time to ensure that you clear those away. Leaving them for the winter months may make it more or a problem, so keeping on top of it and trying to do it every few days will have your garden looking great and also avoid it becoming a huge task. 

Cutting down any overgrown trees or bushes

When all the leaves have dispersed you may want to use the opportunity to cut some bushes or trees back a little. The absence of the leaves may highlight any trees or bushes that have gotten a little overgrown during the summer months. Cutting these down to size ensures that when they start to grow back, they become far more easy to manage. 

Invest in some key pieces to enjoy next year

As we approach the winter, less people are spending time outside, so now is the ideal time to make investments in the things you can enjoy next year. It could be the best time to buy some new garden furniture like wood adirondack chairs that you can put away until it gets warmer, bird baths that you can install to attract some wildlife when the warmer weather returns, and even things like decking and patio area refurbishments. Not many are thinking of the garden, so take full advantage. 

Investing in some storage options

Gardens can notoriously look messy and uncared for, and this can have a lot to do with chairs and clutter being stored on show in your outside areas. So just like you may get some bargains on furniture and ornaments, now would be a great time to invest in some outside storage and a shed, be that wooden or metal, could be the ideal place to put all of those things away for the winter. It also protects them from some of the harsher elements of the weather, keeping things in good condition for the summer. 

Cleaning up any patio or decked areas

Finally, the decking or patio can get full of moss if you are not careful, so it might be a good idea to ensure that you give these areas a clean with a power washer. This can avoid any hugely slippery surfaces as the weather worsens throughout the season. 

Let’s hope that this has inspired you with a few tips to keep the garden passion alive as the weather gets cooler.
