When the cold weather starts to wane and the sun starts to feel arm on our backs again, it’s the perfect time to get out into the garden.
There will be lots of different maintenance tasks to do in the garden in the spring, with most making ready for the glorious summer months. Things you might consider doing include – jet washing your patio or driveway, giving your decking a fresh coat of preservative, cleaning out the shed, painting the outside of your home, doing any structural changes to the garden before plants start to flower and clearing all the debris from the garden including the fallen leaves from last winter.
While all the above jobs are important there is one which stands out, even though it might not come at the top of your list. Many people want their garden and homes to look great but fail to perform appropriate maintenance on their property, resulting in expensive repair costs. The first job which should be carried out is of course the removal of leaf debris from the garden, from the gutters on your house and from the waste water gullies around your home.
Leaf debris is one of the main reasons for blocked drainage at this time of the year. And in most cases drain cleaners in London have to attend the property to jet the drain to get it working properly again.
