The Ultimate Guide To Garden Protection



When your garden is your pride and joy, there’s nothing scarier than something happening to it. And sometimes, you can find that your garden faces all kinds of threats. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to put up with them. Instead, you need to ensure that you can protect your garden from just about anything that you can. And we all know that we need to be able to cover your plants ahead of the winter season, but the weather isn’t the only thing that we have to protect our gardens against, both at this time of year and all year round.


Secure The Boundaries

First up, let’s talk about how you can keep your garden protected on a security level. When you have broken fence panels or hedges with gaps in, you may find that your garden really isn’t secure at all. So, instead, you need to focus on making sure that the entire boundary is secure. For this, the obvious choice is strong fencing, even if it means ripping out a hedge that you already have to upgrade the boundary. But you should also think about the gates with locks that you need to really ensure the space is secure.




Cover Your Veg Patch

However, you’re also going to want to think more about some of the specific areas in your garden, like your vegetable patch. Because when you’re growing veg, you don’t want to have put all of that hard work in to of then found out that the fruits of your labor are damaged. When it comes to growing your own, you don’t always want to douse everything in chemicals. So, instead, you should look at covering your vegetables. This way, they can be protected from any harsh weather, as well as be kept safe from pests.


Tackle Pests
And while we’re on the topic of pests, let's have a look at how we can tackle them too. You’re going to want to ensure your garden is pest-free with some handy homemade deterrents. These can be great for insects. But when you find a wasp nest, you might like to give wasp nest foam a go if you can. Or, call in an exterminator or wasp specialist if you’re concern. This can also be a great idea for rats too.




Protect Your Furniture
But you’ve also got your furniture to think about too. You can often need to protect your garden furniture during both the summer and winter. For wood, it will often need sealing, plastic is best off covered, and when it comes to metal, you should always look to store it away to ensure it's protected.


Discourage Intruders

As well as securing the boundaries, you may also want to focus on further ways to protect your garden from intruders. One of the best ways to discourage them, as well as make it hard for them to get in, is to put lights out so that they can be seen in the garden should they try to enter. Security lights can also be an excellent form of protection here too.
