Is it time for those garden chores?

March 01, 2012

 

If your tenancy agreement makes the garden your responsibility, here are a few tips to help you get things in order after a season of summer growth.

  • Thoroughly sweep driveway, paths and paved areas.
  • Trim back overgrown paths and  paved areas, and neaten any edges.
  • Weed garden beds, paths and  borders. TIP: It’s much easier to do  this after rain when the ground is  soft.
  • Rake the lawn and clear major plant debris.
  • Mow, weed and feed the lawn.
  • Tidy steps, decks, garage, carport and shed.
  • Give outside of the house a brush  down with special attention to  cobwebs. Clean the outside of  windows, external louvers and  screens where you can. TIP: If your  responsibility extends to gutters (this  will be state and lease dependant), it  may be worth calling in an expert  rather than tackling the job yourself.
  • If the garden or pot plants are  looking a bit worse for wear, replace  dead plants. Some potted colour will  make a huge difference. Local  garden centres and nurseries will be  able to give you advice.
