- Don’t forget your lawn
One of the worst sights is dry or dead lawn. Fresh, green and lush lawn is an attractive foundation for any garden. If Summer left your lawn dry and brown, try a high quality fertiliser! This will guarantee your lawn will stay healthy and green. Visit your local hardware or garden store for a good selection.
- Prune, prune, prune!
As experienced Tree Arborists in Perth, we can’t stress the importance of pruning enough. Pruning gives your plants a new lease of life! It helps remove dry parts of the plant and promotes growth. In fact, here’s our blog about pruning tips.
- Try planting something different
- Ever tried or thought about planting some fruit trees? Autumn is a great time because in Perth we still get heaps of sunny days! Why not try a citrus tree to start off with?
- Get rid of the mess
Its easy to neglect your garden over summer here in Australia, 35 degrees plus days makes it hard to spend the day outside gardening. Make the most of the temperate Autumn Perth days, and start off with doing a big clean up. Pull out those weeds, rake those dry leaves, get rid of Summer spider webs and clean dusty outdoor furniture. Just doing these simple things will transform your garden.
