Summertime is extremely hot and spending time working in the garden is probably the last thing you want to do. While it is more fun spending time relaxing by the pool or on the beach, there are a few good reasons why you should spend a bit of time keeping your garden under control.

Keep Grass Short

Mowing the grass can be a very boring chore, something that you may become lax with during hotter weather. While grass does tend to grow as fast during the summer months, keeping on top of it is very important. If you live in an area that is prone to snake sightings you will probably know that they love to hide in long grass.

If you have young children or pets that frequent the garden then keeping grass short is a must to help reduce the likelihood of any snake attacks. Even if you live in an area where snake sightings are very rare, warmer weather can draw snakes and lizards out into areas they may not normally go.

Keep Your Pool Clean

In Australia, it is quite normal to have a thunderstorm or rain shower follow an extremely hot day. If your backyard is full of overgrown and dead trees, shrubs and offcuts these can be blown around your garden during a storm which ultimately ends up in your swimming pool.

Pools require quite a lot of maintenance and upkeep so having to spend time fishing green waste out of your pool will mean less time spent swimming! This rule also applies to any water features that you have around your garden. Plant matter can become lodged in delicate fountain parts, meaning your fountain or water feature may stop working and require maintenance. Not to mention, your water feature will not look so attractive if it is full of leaves, branches and dead plants.

Keep Your Garden Looking Neat

Taking the time to tidy up around your garden, will keep it looking beautifully neat and tidy. Not only will your garden look visually appealing but your house will too. It is surprising how much of an impact the look of your garden has on your home. If you are thinking about selling your home, a tidy and well looked after garden will work in your favour as potential buyers look around the property.

Most Australian families spend more time outside during summer, entertaining friends and family and cooking up a storm on the BBQ. A well looked after garden will help add to the relaxed atmosphere of your party and give your guests something good to look at while they enjoy a drink and a few snags!
