Once the harsh UK winter has said its goodbyes, it is time to take a look at the garden, which has lay dormant for a few months and could certainly do with some remedial work to restore it to its former glory. This will ensure that when the summer finally arrives, your outdoor living space is looking its best, and with that in mind, here are a few things to consider doing before summer arrives.
- Fencing – If your fencing is looking a little jaded, treating it will a couple of coats of stain will certainly make a difference. Failing that, you could replace old fencing and with trusted fencing services in West Lothian, your garden will be ready for the coming summer barbeques. There are a range of timbers that make for attractive fencing and with matching gates, your exterior will complement the property.
- Patio Decking – This can be either revarnished or replaced, and with a local fencing contractor that also carry out decking replacement, you can have both the fencing and decking replaced with matching timber.
- Tree Care – This is the best time to prune trees and large shrubs, which will prepare them for the coming summer. By removing dead branches and generally shaping the trees to suit the immediate environment, your trees will be an integral part of a well-balanced garden.
