Getting ready for the Spring...

Spring weather is picking up and we are excited! Lots of flowers blooming and the birds chorus in the morning. A picture perfect garden and a coffee on the patio… Oh no! The winter has completely ruined the setting!? Let us give you some quick tips to bring back your garden delight…

1.       Clear those gutters! Not the easiest or nicest of jobs but the April showers will soon be hitting us and those gutters have thrived on damp all winter through. Clear the moss and the debris and you’ll be thanking yourself when the rain pours.

2.       Cut the grass quick! The first cut of the start of every year should be done around March. Ideally you would want this done with a petrol mower because the grass from the bottom will most likely be wet.

3.       Clear those leaves and twigs from the paths and garden. They come from nowhere and make the garden look untidy.

4.       How are your tools looking? Service them, a lot of accidents can happen from tools that are not in a fit state to be used, always put your safety first and hire tools if needed to do the right job.

5.       Look after your children and pets. The first things we all want to do are plant plants and grow vegetables, and with this we try to protect them. You can buy child and animal friendly weed killer. Make sure that your insect repellent is kept away from them at all times.

6.       Clean the tables and chairs. We always have a surprise visit from the sun and we itch to get our garden parties started. Make sure you can spend the day prepping the BBQ food and you’ll not need to worry about cleaning the furniture.

7.       Pressure wash your green garden. Moss grows everywhere and on everything. Pressure wash your decking, fence panels and concrete to bring back to life your surroundings.

No Maintenance Gardens!?

Yes they are real! Low maintenance gardens are a dream but NO maintenance gardens are paradise. While all of us like to have green fingers from time to time, the busy schedules that most of us keep prevent us from being able to save our garden from becoming overgrown or from killer weeds, naughty insects or dehydration! 

So how do we create a gorgeous scene throughout all times of the year? Our premium forest like artificial grass, strong membrane and pebble stone, decking and clean feather board fencing with concrete gravel boards and posts. It is simple yet healthy looking. And if you enjoy a little green finger time then a planter with your favourite flowers in is much easier to manage and able to keep pest free.
D&J Projects Landscaping

Now I know what you’re thinking… Yes, all this daydreaming is great… BUT how much!? Well think about the lawnmower savings, the free from sore knees and back, the ends to cutting hedges back and all those supplements needed to keep healthy grass and even then it goes brown. Take all that away for many, many years and there you have the cost of your garden.

D&J Projects Ltd have made this a reality for many people and intend on doing so for those who can no longer enjoy a garden due to illness, work commitments, being away from home a lot etc. We work with what you want. We are bursting with ideas but want it to be your project so are happy to offer advice only when you require. Get in touch today and start building your tranquil area with us.
