If you are renting your home and you have a garden, you may be responsible for its upkeep under the terms of your tenancy. If you are not a keen gardener, you should still be able to look after your landlords garden without too much hard work and ensure your deposit is returned at the end of your tenancy.

Here are some simple steps to take to prepare your garden for winter and have it looking its best by spring.

Give it a good tidy-up

Lawn care

Look out for wildlife

Last but not least, don’t forget about wildlife. Although not a requirement as a tenant, winter can be tough on garden wildlife, so it’s always good to give them a helping hand where possible.

Put some bird feeders out, the RSPB have lots of useful ideas and information to help you care for our feathered friends and other garden visitors to help them make it through the winter.

What’s more they are lovely to watch while you are wrapped up warm inside and they will return you’re kindness by feasting on any winter pests that take a liking to your landlords plants!
