Gardening: First Jobs for Spring

Winter has well and truly arrived! The cold has set in, the trees have dropped their leaves and the plants are dormant. While you can take a break from the routine garden maintenance, now is the ideal time of the year to get those construction jobs started so everything is completed ready to make the most of your garden when the weather warms up again.

If you haven’t already done so, you should prepare your garden furniture for the winter. Cover benches and store away patio furniture in the shed or if your furniture is too large to store, cover it with one of our furniture covers. They keep the furniture clean and protects from damaging frosts.

If your furniture has seen better days, now is also a good time to look for something new. We have a big selection of tables and chairs for the garden in a range of different materials including teak, hardwood, metal and textiline. Teak is the preferred choice in the construction of garden furniture due to its strength and longevity and although the lifespan of other materials does not quite match that of teak, they are none the less of excellent quality and build meaning you'll get maximum use and quality from whichever product you choose to buy.

For something more contemporary you'll want to look at our range of textilene bistro and patio sets. It looks the part in any modern garden. If however you want to use your furniture all year round, take a look at our aluminium patio sets that offer excellent weather resistance, or teak which due to its high oil content can be left out all year round.

The landscaping jobs that are often done during the summer can be done for a lower cost during the winter. Landscape gardeners and builders are often quieter in the winter and will give you a better rate on those hard landscaping jobs that you cannot complete yourself. Garden Oasis has a great selection of paving and patio kits from Kelkay so if you are tired of looking at cracked, sunken slabs, take a look at the paving and aggregates category for inspiration and the best prices on a range of paving that can transform our patio. The autumn storms have taken their toll on structures in the garden so now is a good time to replace tired or damaged fencing with new quality wooden fence panels from Grange fencing. Take a look at our range of gazebos, arbours and pergolas and get them installed now so your garden is all done in time to make Spring and Summer one to enjoy outside!

Finally, we also provide a huge range of garden gates in wrought iron and wood. The wrought iron gates often have matching railings so you can completely transform the look of your property whilst improving security and adding value at the same time. New, is the option to have a number of the metal gates galvanised and powder coated so you can fit your gates straight away without needing to paint them. With new exclusive designs and a made to measure service for both the wooden and metal gates, you can be sure of a perfect fit and with permanently low prices and free delivery, you’ll like the prices too!

Questions are always welcome, so if you can’t decide which garden furniture is best to meet your needs or you need help to work out what size gate to order, call or email us and our customer services team will be more than happy to advise on any products in our range.
