The summer is winding down and it’s time to start thinking about clearing the garden. Best to do it now, while the weather is OK and before the evenings draw in too much. Garden Universal have some products which can help with your tidy up. Not all of us have a trailer to use for the dump runs and the faithful car boot can take a hammering, so check out some of our clearing up accessories.
Car Boot Liners
I don’t know about you, but I tend to wash the car once (maybe twice) a month unless I am off somewhere nice and need the car looking smart. When it comes to the dump runs, it’s not a biggy, if everything is neatly packed in bags and it’s not dirty, but sadly, that’s not always the case and I can end up packing mucky stuff in the boot, which can make a mess.

Rather than spending the next few hours hoovering up the mess in the boot, consider one of our handy boot liners which make it much simpler to tidy up after dump runs.

Preparing for Bonfire Season
Remember to read our Hedgehog post here, if you are keeping back some garden waste for this year’s bonfire. Remember, it’s a perfect hiding place for hedgehogs and other wildlife so any bundling of wood for a future bonfire, needs to be checked for friendly garden critters.
The garden clean up is an essential task, but remember to re-use as much as possible, mulching down, composting or building the bonfire for your family fireworks evening. What does need to go down the tip, can be done cleanly and efficiently, using one of our boot tidy accessories.
Finally, recycle where possible and reduce the impact on landfill. Be a responsible gardener and respect the environment.
