Remove plant debris
Plant remains are the first to take care of. Collect the leaves fallen from trees and ornamental plants, periodically. Leaving them on the ground to rot will not only create a desolate visual appearance, but will favor the multiplication of microorganisms that can negatively affect the health of your garden.
Pay attention to the trees, they need grooming
If you have trees in the garden, you will have to deal with seasonal pruning. The process involves the removal of broken branches, those affected by diseases and those that are dry. Fruit trees require special attention. Also, if the garden is enriched with acclimatized trees, additional operations may be needed, as many of these trees do not withstand severe frosts, so they will have to be covered with propylene films.
Prepare the gazebo for winter
If you want to enjoy the cool winter air, you can organize a gazebo in the garden. Whether you opt for an open construction with a natural fire pit, or for a closed gazebo model with a garden fireplace, you can create a fairytale setting. Such an environment will be perfected by garden furniture, which will complement an ideal setting for relaxation.
