Black Country Bugle
TO DO LIST
■ Make or set up a new compost container, ready to take all the garden waste that you collect when you start clearing up the garden at the end of the season. ■ Clean, oil and sharpen garden tools and put them away in the shed, left,
– add storage racks or shelving so it’s easy to find what you need next season. ■ Sprinkle sharp sand on boggy areas of the lawn to improve surface drainage and firm up the ground. If it’s a place you have to walk over, consider sinking a few stepping stones to avoid muddy tracks when the grass wears out.
