Top Tips to Help you Take Stock of Your Garden this January

As is traditional in the first month of the year, now is the time to take stock of certain aspects of your life and think about what you want to do differently in the year to come. Our gardens are no exception to this. Consider what worked well last year and what didn’t go so well. What do you want to change in your garden this year, and consider whether there is anything you need professional landscape gardening help with.

Once you’ve worked out what you want to do with your garden this year, it’s time to take stock and work out an action plan.

Hard landscaping

If you wish to add any hard landscaping into your garden this year, the winter months are a great time to do so. Whether you’re adding a patio, a raised flowerbed or perhaps even a gazebo, take stock now while your garden is at its barest. This means that any hard landscaping you add now will be less likely to disturb the rest of your garden.

If you need any help with your hard landscape gardening ideas, seek the advice of your local professional contractors. Hard landscaping can be hard to implement as a DIY job, so if you want to avoid having another garden failure on your garden stock take this time next year, it’s best to get the job done properly.

Vegetable gardening

If you’re keen on growing your own, have you thought about what fruit and veg you want to grow this year? Think back to last year; it’s not just a good idea to take stock of what vegetables grew well in the conditions your garden provides, but also about which vegetables you particularly used.

If you had a glut of a certain fruit or vegetable, or you found that you grew something you wouldn’t normally use in your everyday cooking, it might be wise to scale back on these crops and instead plant something which you know you’ll use and will be eaten.

Mind the gaps

Are there areas of your garden which are a little barer than others? The winter months often expose where there are gaps in our planting, and so take this time to assess whether you need to plant up certain areas to fill them out a little.

If you’re not sure what to plant where, get in contact with specialist contractors in landscape gardening services and ask them to create a planting plan for you.

Landscape gardening tools

Remember, it’s not just the look of your garden that you should be considering: think about any of your garden equipment that might need replacing this year, such as tools and even sheds and greenhouses. You might even be able to find some bargains in the January sales!
