Paving the Way for Winter

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2012) - As the nights grow darker and the temperature drops so too does the time we have to concentrate on outdoor home improvement. Come November you'll be able to see your breath and there'll be an icy sheen on every surface, so if you haven't stuck to your grand garden renovation plans during the summer months then get yourself in gear now before it's too late. Put in that extra effort now to create a great outdoor space to make the most of next summer, however long, short, hot or cold it may be.

The path to success

It may seem like a large task but it's now easier than ever to lay or indeed relay your garden path or drive. With just a few simple steps you can have concrete delivered to your door ready to spread and create a smooth new surface that will be easy to shovel when the snow and ice start. Choose the type of concrete you want, when you would like it delivered and now with the clever concrete calculator you can get just the right amount of ready to mix concrete delivered by providing just a few simple measurements and dimensions.

Looking lush through winter

Tis meant to be the season to be jolly but leafless trees and plants can make your garden look less than inviting during the dull winter months. Planting a few evergreen shrubs can be a great way of injecting some colour and what's more providing the perfect habitat for hibernating creatures. Calendulas and Cineraria's are amongst some of the brightest, beautiful flowers that fair extremely well in the cold conditions. As well as transforming the barest of winter gardens these little beauties will also merge in perfectly come spring.

Gutters and drains

It's not the nicest job but clearing your gutters and drains can prevent a lot of nasties later on in the year. Buying a leaf guard for your drain can be a great way of preventing unwanted blockages and backlog from fallen leaves and dirt. Make sure you don't neglect your gutters and drains and you'll avoid overspill and leaks that can end in pesky damp problems, not what you want this Christmas.
