No problem, they’ll release essential nutrients as they rot and help feed your plants. Then the autumnal foliage ups its game and seemingly overnight the whole lawn is obscured by a carpet of fiery hues. Time to break out the garden tools.

We are indeed starting to say goodbye to summer. To be fair after its poor performance I am more than happy to help it on its way out. I think it needs to take a long hard look at its 2012 season and ask itself ‘did I really give the great British people a summer they could be happy with?’
Whilst we wait, with bated breath for the cooler months to arrive there are some simple things you can be doing to get your home and garden winter ready.

The sunny British Summer (see: some nice weather for a few days) is finally upon us. What better time to take advantage and tackle any nagging unfinished DIY in and around your house and garden?
Right, you’re thinking why in the heck would I waste this weather on DIY? But it’s a known fact* that DIY completion is directly and positively correlated with capacity to feel pleasure. Simply, the more you DIY the more pleasure you’ll feel in all other aspects of your life. You thought the meal you had last night tasted pretty damn good? Now think, had you cleaned the gutters beforehand, suddenly that pork pie and Special Brew is tasting like a 5* Michelin meal washed down with Moet & Chandon. Or hey, maybe the 5* posh nonsense you were forced to eat is now tasting more like a good ol’ pork pie and brew.
